    Every day I get a text message from 617-372-2303 about joining something
    called Glide. It directs me to a web site: i.glide.me

    I tried blocking the phone number, but it seems to be getting through. I tried
    e-mailing the company but all I got was a robot response.

    The Feds will do nothing about text messages, but I consider this to border on
    harassment.

    Any ideas ??

    Thanks and Happy New Year,

    Richard S.

    I always found BlackList to work. Block it as containing, not exact, because the callerID sent might contain the +1 at the beginning.

    I texted the reply "STOP" when I got the message and received a text back saying I was off the list, try that..

    I find that answering these spam messages only tells them they have reached a live carbon unit ... then, Katy, bar the door !!
