    At work, I have a RL2000 that is activated on the Austin CSA. Seems the
    previous owner of this number signed up for a number of MSN alerts. We
    get over a dozen alerts a day. I don't want to pester people at our
    corporate offices over something silly like this, but I'd like it all to
    stop. I don't have the information Sprint would ask for for account
    access. Is there something I can do with MSN to stop all this? I've been
    on the MSN site and didn't see anything.

    It probably would have stopped on its own if Sprint hadn't reassigned
    the number so quickly after its deactivation. Call Sprint and demand
    that they block (reject) messages for the period of one month. That
    should be enough for MSN to deactivate any messages sent to your phone.

    Sounds like a valid ground to ask for and get (for free) a different
    phone number.

    Thanks for the advice, but for me to make a change like that with my
    company would require quite a bit of footwork on the corporate end, both
    in contacting sprint and changing the company literature. I don't have
    the information needed by Sprint to make changes on this account. I have
    these messages filtered into another folder by the phone, so it's not
    terrible, but it is rather annoying to get the Libra horoscope and
    "METRIC AVE/Cedar Bend - accident reported" every hour or so.

    Mike, I get MSN mobile alerts, set up from mobile.msn.com . Don't know
    whether this suggestion will work, but you can try it. You can go there
    (mobile.msn.com), sign on or join , and set up your profile with your
    telephone number. If you are lucky, all those different alerts will show up
    and you can delete them from there.

    If that doesn't work, there is a contact link -
    http://mobile.msn.com/support/Contact.aspx where you can plug in your
    telephone number and request all those alerts be cancelled.

    Bob

    Why not log onto MSN and try to change settings ... asking for a
    password reminder. Perhaps then you will get the password emailed to
    your phone and you can then login yourself and shut the notifications
    off. Otherwise, you need to email [email protected] (or any other
    valid email address you can find for them).
