Report Spam Text Messages With AT&Ts Mark The Spot App

"If you thought your iPhone was safe from the predations of spammers, think again. Because U.S. carriers know that unhappy customers will complain to state attorneys general, the FCC, and legislators about receiving and being charged for unsolicited commercial (and often totally fraudulent) cell phone calls and text messages, mobile companies have policed such activity quite closely."
Use the AT&T Mark The Spot app and you can report any spam texts you receive. Simple to do, with the message in your window, hit the edit button. Then click on the circle to the left of the message so that the red checkmark shows up. Then forward it to 7726, which spells SPAM on your keypad not so coincidentally. And that is that. Easy right?
