Great idea!  I've converted your discussion thread (which will get buried in the noise) into a Wiki-style Document in our space.  That's where we talk about SMS, Text Messages and more.  Thank you for taking this on!

Customer service has access to the short code messaging blocks. The self-service tools are meant more for specific numbers, not an overall block.

1311 does NOT work. States invalid destination

If you look for this document "Block or allow text messages from your phone" (it is not in thecommunity section)  there is a great chart that has all the codes that you can use with your phone. This is the page link as well.

There is no option on a Motorola Photon to forward a text message.  Cannot report spam.

Hello. How do you find out what numbers you have block on your device?

I received a sprint free message the other day with the code 4242 and a link. I searched online and I have found nothing about a message with the code 4242. The message it's self seemed odd because it ask if I want Spanish text and I have never receive a sprint message like it. The message read, "Sprint Free message 4242: We have 5 questions about your Sprint store visit Reply"e" for English,"s" para Espanol, "Stop" to quit or go to Feedback.sprint.com/5a469a02". Is it a legitimate sprint message?

If you recently had service done at one of the corporate stores they are asking you to complete a survey of the service.

That is the thing, I haven't been to a store in months and last time I was, a few days later I had an over the phone survey. I have received other odd mms and txt messages from numbers from out of state and numbers messaging me asking who I was and saying I had text them, with no records on my phone of sending any messages. Also I have notice sometimes at night when I have my phone just sitting for a while and I pick it up the GPS satellite symbol is there and then quickly disappears. I have all the location settings off/set to 911 only.

What about code 9407? I just received 2 texts two days ago from this one.  The first said , "Hi, this is Sprint. We'll text you shortly regarding your call to Sprint Care, pleae reply! (all survey texts are FREE, reply "STOP" to quit)".  The second said, "Q1. How satified are you with the overall handling of your call by Kristofer on a scale of 5 (very satisfied) to 1 (very dissatisfied)?  I have 3 phones on my account and no one called Sprint Care or has even done a Sprint chat in over 2 months.  The last chat was in March with Kyle not Kristofer. 

I think this is either a mistake (sent to the wrong number) or some type of spam text.  I think Sprint should check this number out and I'm going to forward them to 7726 (SPAM).
