Can't you block the numbers?

Don't mess with old people.  The older we get, the less "Life in Prison" is a deterrent.

I have had this to me before in 2 in the morning so I get where you are coming from. How I got rid of them is to leave any SMS group chats and it worked for me and I hope it works for you.

There should be a way to stop ad texts! They are increasing every week and come from different numbers, so blocking the number does not work. The ads are from quack diet and health products and services. Surely AT&T can outsmart these companies! Or are you purposely allowing/benefitting from them? They are filling up my phone and I want them to stop now.
