For months now I have been getting texts from odd gmail accounts. These are not messages sent to my gmail, they are texting them to my phone number, not emailing them to me. I don't even have gmail set up on my phone (I check my email through the browser). The links lead to sites (usually some pornographic site). But I cannot block the sender. There's no phone number to block, and I can't find an option to block messages texted to me from an email account.
Is there any way to stop these or block the email accounts they are being sent from?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Go to Verizon.com and sign in
Select My Account
Select Block Email
Check the boxes for Block Messages from Email
and Block Messages from The Web
You can test this by emailing email@example.com.
For other carriers I suggest contacting tech support specifically, Customer Service drones rarely know anything more than is on their terminal screen. Your mileage may vary...
