    That just sucks!
    I had that same issue, so I just waited until my contract was up and ditched the phone..Yupp, having no phone can suck @ times, but NO BS anymore....Plus I save the $’s every month..And most carriers will not stop them and they charge for call block...It will only get worse as time moves forward..
    Now they say creditors in the near future will be able to hassle ppl on social media to boot..

    I cut as much cord n techno as I could...One way or another these IDIOTS will find ways...

    I've heard of it, but, thankfully haven't gotten any myself.

    My brother works IT for the County (government), & he says he gets them all the time, like someone has a list of all the county phones & texts out in groups.

    Block the numbers. Unfortunately, they use spoofing devices, so the number you block is probably not the origin & they'll spoof another number next time around.

    I've been hearing about a new mobile phone that is extremely simple..It's very basic, you can make calls and text, it has an alarm and a clock, and that's it..I'll look up the model and make, although I'm sure there's going to be more folks who don't want to give up all their "apps" and so forth than not, and don't care about all the nonsense that goes with a smartphone.

    The scary part is the tracking, along with the ability to be able to watch people go about their lives..We have some friends who were telling us a few days ago that they were baking chocolate chip cookies at their home last weekend, when all of a sudden their smartphones started popping up ads for chocolate chip cookies, mixes, and recipes, and they had not said anything about, or asked for such info..It kind of freaked them out!

    Coincidence? Maybe. Or maybe not..Maybe the phone smelled the cookies?

    I'm not getting any porn stuff, I do sometimes get "meet beautiful girls" or some such B.S..I figure it's probably phone-sex sites in which one thinks they're talking to a woman but they're really talking to something like a drag queen or transvestite..:shock:

    Considering the times I'm glad I'm happily married, I would truly hate to try playing the dating game nowadays! :run:

    Yeah, I have an older friend who is in great shape and is a good looking guy and he says dating these days is just horrible. Women misrepresent themselves in pictures, they act like they are interested and they are not, most are all fat and beat up and they think they are hot...he said its just unbelievable.
