Sounds like it might be spam. I know people have been complaining about spam recently, but A&T hasn't really done anything about it. You can try to reply back STOP. See if the text messages stop coming to your phone.

I know who is sending these messages, but obviously can't prove it since they're coming from these numbers. Does anyone know anything about these and to whom this spam needs to be reported?Thanks!

She's sending them anonymously by using these numbers, but I know they're from her and I'd like to be able to block this and any sequential numbers from her.

I do not even use my text message feature so I have no plan for it. I don't want to have to have to pay for spam. AT & T help here!
