AT&T has blocked my number from SMS texting

Hi, I text two large groups of people for weekly activities. It seems that At&T has blocked my phone number as spam. My gf, my friends and my kids can not receive my texts. How can I be unblocked?

Let's look into those outgoing text messages for you, @neweraexst!


We just want a little more information about your experience.

  1. When sending a text message are you noticing any notification such as Not Delivered or Suspected Spam?
  2. Are you noticing this issue when sending text messages via cellular or Wi-Fi?
  3. How is your signal strength?

If you haven't already, try resolving your experience by powering your device off then back on again. Also, make sure to clear your messaging app then sending outgoing messages again.


Let us know how this worked for you.
