When customers notify AT&T about being charged for spam, AT&T works with them to resolve the charges. AT&T provides customers who receive SMS and MMS spam with credits to offset the charges. It’s important to note that often AT&T cannot determine if a message is subscribed or unsolicited until the customer brings it to their attention.
Additionally, customers can get more info on how to control spam by visiting: www.att.com/wireless and search "spam."
quote: Maybe I'm missig something, but why do the cell providers even allow these spammers to charge $10? When that request comes into them that's when they say no way unless the user gave the OK.You see the problem I asking right? Why would Sprint get the request from the spammer to bill the user $10 and just do it? That amount should throw up a red flag and need investaging or approval by calling and asking the user!
