SPRINT: How do I block "Unknown sender" text messages?

Currently Being Moderated

I just received a text message from "uknown sender":


"hiya I took ur digits off my friend, I bet you can't guess who this is! well I'm too shy.. u can find me online, my page is"


Going to the domain name refers you to Do a Google search and you'll find dozens of people getting "unknown sender" messages that lead back to this site, and almost all of the recipients state that they have Sprint service.


These idiots are spamming people's cell phones to boost their business.


- My first question is, how do I block text messages from "unknown sender"?


I've gone to the My Tools page and entered "unknown sender" into the block list, but I have doubts this will work since the page specifies an actual address of some kind.


- My second question of course is why does Sprint pass on messages (SPAM, in other words) from "unknown senders" to it's paying cell users?


Thanks for any help you can provide.
