How to block texts coming from email addresses

Jump to solution

For the past couple of months, I have been receiving text messages from various email addresses, sending links to porn sites. I can't figure out how to block these. I'd like to just block all messages from emails, since they keep changing the email address, and no one I know texts from email. Any solutions?

Thanks!

Hello @akan001! Welcome to our Cricket Community Forum and thank you for your post. We recommend downloading the app Hiya which blocks unwanted calls and messages. However, if this does not work, Cricket is able to change your telephone number for a $15 fee.

So, are you saying that Cricket can't do what it's parent company AT&T can do? They have the ability to turn off messages from emails....

That's a Awful Solution how does the consumer not know if the Spam texts from Email are coming from Cricket connections - $15 to change the Phone Number is not a solution it is not even a Bandaide on the Problem after all our legitimate contacts have the number - FIX THIS or I see a Class Action coming your way

Charging People to Change a Number is not a solution it is a Huge Problem - How do we know it isn't a Cricket Partner sending the Texts? You would get $15 each time you betrayed your customers and all our Legitimate Contacts have the Existing Number  - YOU NEED TO FIX THIS or I see a Class Action lawsuit coming your way - You cannot charge people for something they didn't BREAK

THAT IS NOT A SOLUTION - Charging people for your Faulty Software is Unbelievably Negligent
