Annoying Text from Verizon

I just had my phone replaced with a factory refurbished phone. It is the same exact phone as the one before it. Now I recieve a text message from Verizon that says, (Urgent) VZWNMN:1. I get them approx. 1 per hour, cannot block it, cannot reach tech support by phone. These text are very annoying I would really like someone to tell me how to stop these.

It is related to a mobile email app associated with your account. There are several other discussions in the Verizon Wireless Community forum discussing this. Try a search and see if the steps work for you.

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

Krob929,

We don't want you to have to keep dealing with these text. Let's put a stop to these messages. Are you still receiving the text messages? If so, please private message me so we can review your account.

Me, too... 17 of these today.

Stupid, meaningless , like "VZWNMN-1"  I finally replied asking whoever it is to stop it already.

Ridiculous!
