The FCC today issued proposals for new rules to fight scam text messages and other robotexts. The FCC wants to apply "caller ID authentication standards to text messaging". Mobile wireless providers would be required to "to block texts, at the network level, that purport to be from invalid, unallocated, or unused numbers, and numbers on a Do-Not-Originate (DNO) list." The FCC is also asking the industry if more can be done to detect and block texts from spoofed phone numbers. The FCC is seeking comment on these and any other steps the Commission might take to fight illegal texts.
