How to easily tell if you can report text spam from your phone

If you have a smart phone with a QR reader, then you can scan the QR code below and it will prepare a text message with the text “HELP” to send to the short code 7726 (S-P-A-M).

If your mobile operator supports reporting text spam to 7726, then you should get back a text that confirms that 7726 is for spam reporting.

If you don’t have a smart phone, or a QR reader, you can still test it out.  Just type the word HELP as text message and send it to 7726.

If you don’t get a message back, it may be that your mobile provider uses a different short code or they may not have implemented spam reporting yet.  In which case, you should refer to their website to find out the recommended way to report spam.

Always remember that spam is unsolicited, unwanted messages from someone you don’t know.  If you signed up for the text messages, then you should be able to unsubscribe by replying “STOP” to any message they send you.
