    If you have msn instant messenger or have emails forwarded to your
    account on your spcs phone it could be a factor/ Sprint has been trying
    to work on this problem for a few weeks now, your are not the only one
    with this problem. I f the your are still receiving the messages then
    call at 8772114727 and ask for vision tech support so we can create a
    ticket on this matter for it to stop

    A few questions P.

    How long has this been going on?

    What is the content of these TM's?

    Have you included your cell phone number in the past couple of days, to
    anything on line or by cruising Vision with your phone? You could have added
    yourself to a listserv, or message board accidently.

    Who is sending these TM's? Do it seem to come from one source or through a
    couple?

    Do these TM's include any web or URL info? If they do, then you might have a
    chance to unsubscribe from a web site.

    Sprint has been trying to crack down on this, it is illegal.

    Send me an email (take out NOSPAM) with the following information:

    Your PCS#, who is sending it, model phone, and any other relevant
    information.

    Just make sure none of your other email accounts have been
    auto-forwarded to your phone.

    No ticket will be created, but the issue will be reported. May be
    better to go that route instead of sending me the information.

    Spamming like that on a wireless phone is illegal, and SPrint has been
    cracking down on that.

    p lane, call customer service from a landline phone (or a store's red
    phone) and speak to a Vision tech. Have your phone handy with one of
    the solicitations on it (not deleted).

    How long have you had this number? Sometimes what happens is someone
    will have the number before you and register it with MSN or where ever
    to get IM's forwarded to their cell. They change their number, you get
    it, and their messages. If that's the case, you need to contact where
    the messages are coming from and get the forwarding stopped. If you
    get messages like "anybody awake?" it sounds like it could be something
    like that.

    Only thing I can think of is to ask SPCS whether they can track TM's and see
    if they can get a full return address for this person. If they can, then you
    can email the party back and ask to be removed from their list.
