What do I do if I receive a spam text message?

Spam text messages are sent to mobiles usually to advertise a product or service. If you do not recognise the number, we would recommend you not to reply, as this could be a message sent to identify active numbers which could result in more messages being received

Blocking texts - Most handsets allow you to block certain numbers from being able to text you. Setting this up is easy, free, and varies depending on the handset you have.

  • Open your phone’s messaging app and go to more/settings. Look for a block option and choose a number
  • You can also open a message, go to more/settings and look for a block option
