I recently switched to AT&T and got a new phone number. I get spam texts daily. How do I stop them?

Hello there @SaraLynn!

 

Allow us to assist. We advise to forward all suspicious texts to 7726 (SPAM). Messages forwarded to 7726 are free of charge for AT&T customers and won't count toward your texting limits.

 

If you're not able to view the number, please to forward the entire message to abuse@att.net.

 

Finally, make sure to report those suspicious texts to the FTC.

 

We hope this info helps.
