I have been forwarding my spam email-to-SMS to @FidoStephen via PMs to help improve the spam filter for sms.fido.ca
Recently, another community member also posted a similar spam SMS they received. Perhaps a thread dedicated to collecting examples of these types of SMS spam might also help improve the spam filter.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Thanks so much for taking the time to flag all of these to us.
Now you can send any SMS spam you receive to the number 7726 (SPAM). This will submit the messages to be audited and potentially blocked from the network if confirmed to be spam.
All you need to do is forward the spam SMS to 7726. You can do this easily by pressing and holding on the body of the text and then press the forward button. No additional charges apply for this
Thanks again for all your help!
Today I previously posted about these flash messages that I have been getting serveral times a day for a week. Not just annoying, but disruptive, to have to deal with this. Please let me know what I can do besides not anwer them,
The messages you describe (and screen captures provided) are not SMS spam. They're pop-up advertisments. That's why they do not show in your messages. Here are a couple of websites (here, here, and here) offering suggestions how to block those types of pop-up ads.
Hope this helps
