    Has anyone else been getting junk SMS messages since switching to the pre? All of mine say "free msgs: will stop automatically" following by a bunch of characters. I've probably gotten half dozen of them since getting the pre Saturday morning. If anyone has suggestions, please pass along.

    I got one saying standard text message rates apply $.20 per message. Very weird.

    Nah, I used to get spam SMS once every month or two but it's been a while. I think spammers just have mass texting programs that blindly send out messages.

    Wait a sec. A Titans fan in NJ? I live in Nashville. What's your connection?

    I've been getting these too... only about 3. Hopefully they"ll stop.

    Try replying with the text: stop, it could stop it. I've seen this work before, though most of the junk SMS I've seen is on T-Mobile.

    I used to get spam messages on my centro and sprint couldnt figure out why. Then I went to sprint.com and logged in and changed my sprint email address to a bunch of different letters and numbers (example: k38dhfkr8dh@sprint . com) and they stopped. That may work!

    Houston connection. Dad was/is Oilers fan when he was stationed there. Grew up as that, stayed with them when they became the Titans.

    Live near Philly, and im a Philly fan all around... but I pick the Titans over the Eagles any day.

    I'm getting them as well; I tried replying with "stop", but that just sends a message back indicating that the sender has chosen not to receive messages Hrmph

    I've not received any either. Would it be possible to call Sprint on something like this to find out where these messages may have originated from?
