Cell phone verification

Hi folks,

Had service for a year or so on FIOS bundle. Everytime I logged on, to pay my bill the cell phone pop-up verification kept showing up. When I click the "verify" link, it sent a text message wanting confirmation of my ZIP.

I am willing to verify by supplying my service ZIP. However, the text also mentioned that it meant I am willing/agree to receive text messages on my cell. THAT I am not going to consent to. I don't want Verizon to flood my cell with text messages. On top of that I DO NOT want Verizon to sell my cell # for more solicitations.

The question is: after verification on cell phone, do you receive unsolicited texts?
