    Is this the stock SMS or something like Handcent?

    From what I have read STOCK SMS shouldn't do this but the aftermarket ones do.

    The fix is simple.

    Blacklist it.

    Have you went in and set up your voice mail?

    I am having no problems with my VM. I am using Handcent and was getting the texts.

    How do I blacklist a text from a totally randomly generated number from who knows where? Is there an option to blacklist unknown numbers?

    In Handcent, longpress the offending texters # or name. a menu will pop up allowing you to blacklist that sender.

    I hope that stops them. Also, I can't figure out how to set my vvm back up, after wiping and flashing fresh. My vm is just the same old vmailbox I had on my old phone... I've been playing with the settings and the menus within the vm app, but I can't find how to set vvm back to the way it was. Any ideas?

    This doesn't answer his question. If the texts are generated from a random/unknown number, long pressing and blacklisting does nothing except block that one number. That does no good when the next text comes from a different number.

    Yes, this is ture...my personal experience in 6 or 7 months with the Hero is that I received texts from one or two such random/unknown numbers, and blacklisted them both. I have not received any more. But you are correct, this doesn't stop all unknown/unwanted texts. I'm not sue that is doable, or that you would even want to. You might miss a contact from an old friend!

    Blacklisting, I guess, ignores people. It stops their texts from arriving at your phone.

    I've been married a long time and have nothing to hide from my spouse, nor does she feel the need to look at my texts. :):D

    Makes sense. ;) Hadn't considered that senerio, as my kids are all out of the house.

    You know there is a pattern lock available for the phone it self? right?
