So I am using Samsung's messages and phone because I need it to enable Call & Text on my Tablet. But samsung messages doesn't allow me to mark a spam text that doesn't have a phone number associated with it. it only deletes it. Verizon wants to charge $17 p/m which seems absurd. Any ideas? I can't be the only that has this problem right? Currently using stock software on VZ.

    I'm on Verizon unlimited and I can block email messages for free. I forgot exactly where but if ypu log in to your account from a pc there are blocking options for this in your device settings.

    Because they suck lol. They charged me $40 because I bought a new phone from Samsung and activated it. I'll just stick with swapping sim cards next time. There are more options with the paid service but that's all I need anyway. Hopefully that did it for you.
