netti1227 - We want you to know where all of your messages come from. I'm here to help. Usually 4-6 digit numbers text messages are from a service you may have signed up for through a business or an alert from a Social Media (SM) outlet. Oftentimes, the owner of the number will be promoting something from their business or relaying a message to you from the SM network. You can typically stop these alerts by replying with the message STOP, QUIT or END.

It could be a short code to Facebook or some other website. Have you tried an Internet search for the number?

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