SPAM from VM

by Blighty4Q2    Dec 6, 2006, 1:16 AM

For the past several months I've been receiving 15 to 30 SPAM text messages from VM. I've called them (they say "tough" it's their "right" to SPAM me). I've emailed them -- they write I can "turn it off" (but I can't), and they continue.

All the SPAM is their own, but I work 3rd shifts. They wake me in the middle of MY night. I'd registered with the "DO NOT CALL" registry, but I suppose "text" messages don't count. They say it doesn't cost me anything, but it DOES (in time and effort deleting all this unsolicited commercial BS).

How do I get them to stop? File complaints with the FCC? Complain to Richard Branson (I have his address)?

I've threatened to go elsewhere for service, but where I live there aren't many (any) choices for PAYG plans.
