I do belive I am done and once again thank you for all your help. I am on the webpage now.
You can mark this convo as satisfied.
You actually have to mark it as satified or 'solved'. It was your issue
If you have any other questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me.
To block spam you can do it from the vtext.com site or you can go to My Services> Verizon Safeguards> Spam Controls. You have more choices here than at the Vtext.com site. Internet spam blocking is Vtext.com text blocking (just renamed and easier to find). Plus you can block specific numbers from texting you. Its all free.
The premium text blocking or usage controls would never have solved your problem.
