how do I get the 10-digit # from a text message so I can block it? (texts are from 065-061, 065-060, 065-019)

how do I get the 10-digit # from a text message so I can block it? (texts are from 065-061, 065-060, 065-019)

The texts come through without a 10-digit phone number, and you can't block the text without a 10-digit number.

Thanks.

You might try forwarding the texts to SPAM (7726) and then reply to the return text you receive from Verizon.

Thanks for the suggestion, but, I'm not seeing any way to forward the text to SPAM (7726)

Jax_Omen, thanks but if I do that then I won't be able to receive pics and videos from family.

Which phone are you using? Every phone should have the option to forward a text message. It is a matter of finding the exact steps to do so.

I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.

pics/videos are multimedia messages. That's a separate block.

premium messages are the annoying "spam" messages from 4-6 digit shortcodes, usually with a $9.99 monthly fee attached.

Jax_Omen, thanks, I found where I could block just the premium messaging.  We will see if that helps.
