    Default How do I get AT&T to quit freaking texting me?
    I want to stop ALL texts to my phone. I do not have a text plan and I am on PYP prepaid. AT&T keeps texting me and costing me my balance!

    If there is no simple way.......... whadda ya think will happen if I delete the SMS.app? If it never gets to my phone will I still be charged if it goes through the system? I wouldn't think, but............

    You can call them and have them remove txt from the number. I did it on a phone on my family plan.

    I called 611 and the operator said paygo plans are not setup for removal of features so they cannot remove the text messaging from a paygo plan. I was told there is nothing to do but call in for a refund if I get an unwanted text.

    DEAL BREAKER.

    I was however told that until the phone receives the message and it pops up in the system as "text received, confirmed" and not in "waiting" status I am not charged for the text no matter how many times they send it.

    SOOOOOOO....."sms.app......delete" problem solved. FYI If the phone doesn't get the text, no charge.
