Does anyone on here know how to block anonymous text messages? I have alltel wireless.

I've never received one. Does the message give you a clue about the sender or what they are promoting? I would think that if you could contact the sender and hint that you know where they live, they may think twice . :wink:

You can't reply to the message either.

You're probably getting text messages that are being sent online to your phone and not from another phone. The only thing you can do is disable your text messages all together. My girlfriend had the same problem and she has alltel. You'll have to give them another call if you want messages disabled.

Does Alltel charge you per received message?

Nope. Messages received are free, only sent ones are charged.

Makes it easier for people to send text messages to their buddies.

http://www.alltel.com/text_messaging/They didnt use that service because their callback # was 666-666. Scary huh?
