HATE TEXT from unknown AT&T Cell # @mms.att.net

Can someone at AT&T help with shutting down the owner of the number above?

I received a message that says (Edited per community guidelines) on 15 Sep 2020 at 0736 hrs.


The phone area code seems to be St. Louis.

AT&T can't "shut down" that number...it might not even be the actual phone number of the person sending the message. 


You can block that number on your phone. If the texts continue, you can contact the police about being harassed.

Hey @myronsipe.


We're here to help!


We understand that getting messages from unwanted numbers is frustrating.


Are you able to forward the text to SPAM (7726) to report?


You may also access our report unwanted calls and text form in order to give a more detailed report.


Please let us know how this helps.
