I got a message from "unknown sender", but I know it was from Sprint; it told me to call customer care.
Will sprint block their own messages?
This may not even BE from a short code.... it says "unknown sender" because it's probably coming from an anonymous email. How exactly you'd block something you don't know the address of is beyond me
I'd call Tech Support and see....
I am unaware of how this third party company has received your telephone number, however you are able to call or chat in and be blocked from all third party services, this will block any short codes from being able to contact your device and vice versa. We are able to do this through a tool in our system.
Hope this helps.
