    I keep getting text messages from 3333 with messages saying "Want to expand your HTC EVO 4G know-how? Follow the link for some helpful tips & tricks. The link is http://gospv.com.de3

    I began getting these as soon as I switched form ATT to Sprint. I haven't followed the link, as I suspect it is junk.

    Anyone else getting these?

    Yes. My assumption is these are coming from Sprint in an attempt to help those out with their new purchases.

    It's Sprint that is spamming you. Contact customer service and ask them to stop.

    Yep, you can opt out.

    It's not just to new customers, I've been with Sprint for many years and they send them to me every once in a while. I finally got fed up and called customer service to get them to stop. Blocking the numbers from "My Sprint" doesn't work, as the numbers they come from change. (I don't know if the block works anyway, given that it's Sprint sending them.)

    I just started getting some of these text. I've been with Sprint since 07 and Nextel for 2 years before that. I just ignore them.

    That is also the same sender for when you text a file that is too large for the other person to receive, if I'm not mistaken. I'm not sure you want to block that. It's nice to know right away your stuff didn't go through.

    Have you tried replying to the text with "Stop"?

    I was mistaken. It's 3344 that the error/unsent messages come from.
