How Do I Stop Unsolicited Messages? Block a Number on T-Mobile.
There are diverse ways of identifying spam messages and dealing with them.
Spam messages are unsolicited messages we frequently receive from individuals and organizations that we have not subscribed to.
Despite the belief of many, there is a difference between SMS spam and SSS (short self-code), which includes the T-mobile shortcodes used to keep mobile users updated about their accounts.
Senders of messages from 3700 to 4299 and 9701 to 9901 are messages from the service provider. Sometimes a message can be sent using MMS, which often shows the name or number of the sender of the message.
You can decide to unsubscribe and stop receiving these messages by dialing the code provided by the network or visiting the official website.
If you don’t know the identity of the person that sent you the messages, or if the message did not indicate any option for opt-out, do not respond to the message.
There is a possibility that you will get one more notification from the network if you decide to opt out. You can also send a message to 7726 if it is spam, and T-Mobile will send you a confirmation message with detailed instructions.
