    I got a rather odd text message last night:

    From: 66075
    Date: 2/20/06 4:32 pm

    Please use the following URL to
    download your digital media

    http://astromobo.com/astro.php... (I left off the rest for safety)

    The URL contained my Treo phone number plus a bunch of other variables.

    Anyone else seen this?

    Sprint Treo 650

    I have seen something similar. I emailed back that this Treo belonged to a member of the FCC senior management team and all further texts wouldn't be tolerated and how i would bring their whole organization down.

    Needless to say, I never saw it again.

    those numbers remind me of an AOL TXT Message, your AOL is not linked to AIM is it?

    how fortuitous i came across this thread. I get 2 or 3 spam text messages a night, in fact it wakes my wife and I up. I just changed the sms ring to a lower volume since I very very rarely use sms.

    r u saying that I can tell verizon to prevent spam messages somehow, or just that i can turn off sms?
