This is another point from AT&T

I really hate this company, in my opinion and experence with them. I hate spam, I hate spam texts even more, I hate American Idol, and combine all of those with AT&T and you've got a room full of hate and bad words.
I think AT&T should be sued for this, and in part of that all the towers have to be allocated to T-Mobile.
SMS is not email and shouldn't have any text that is not wanted.
You are like every other person on this website that complains about everything and is full of hate..If AT&T wants to send a free email out to its customers let them. If you don't want text then call customer service and BLOCK THEM. Why not use there ...

It's absolutely spam

This quote says it all:


Richard Cox, the chief information officer for Spamhaus, a nonprofit antispam organization based in Britain, countered: "It’s absolutely spam. It's an unsolicited text message. People who received it didn't ask for it. That's the universal definition of spam."


Even worse than an unwelcome email message is one that comes when you're busy and sounds like it's from someone you know.
