Plagued with annoying spam texts on your Android device? Report them to the GSMA spam reporting service! On most networks this can be done by forwarding them to 7726 (that’s S-P-A-M on your phone’s keypad.) Reporting these spam messages helps your mobile operator to take action against spammers and prevent further spam.
Please note: while many mobile carriers around the world are moving to the 7726 short code as a standard way to report text message spam, some countries may use a different short code such as in France where the code is 33700. If you don’t get the expected response from 7726, then check with your mobile carrier for the best way to send in spam reports.
In this post we’ll focus on showing you how to forward spam to 7726 on an Android using KitKat (4.4) with the default Hangouts application.
