    SPAM on my Blackberry NO!!!!

    Advertisement



    Well Needless to say SPAM is everywhere now I’ve got it on my Blackberry. I called Nextel to let them know they say its been happening to a lot of customers. I don’t understand I NEVER use that email address for anything except when emailing people I know. I never use it to sign up for anything I keep to myself. Someone HELP!!!!!! :cry: :cry: ..I'm going to TRY to filters but I dont know.

    Anyone else having this issue? Solutions??

    I feel your pain. It seems to be a growing problem for BIS users. I'm sure by now RIM is looking into updating their heuristics for their BIS server SPAM discovery.

    for now read here:

    If you check out the "to" addresses, you'll notice most are to other bb addresses as well. That's what is most shocking to me. I get roughly 20 a day now. I've had this problem for about a month.

    I went into my BIS and changed my email address, just added a dot in the middle of my name. You could do that unless it is vital for you to keep that email address.

    The problem that I have been having is with spam text messages - I ususally get 1 per day, and since I have pay-as-you-go text messaging it isn't very good. Nextel has told me twice that they blocked it (text messaging on my phone) and the last time I called they told me that it was impossible to block it....Luckily (knock on wood) I haven't been getting the spam e-mails yet.....

    Yeah, I've opened sooo many new bank accounts to receive megafunds from Nigerian "businessmen" with hotmail accounts. The incidence of this has definitely increased and it would be good to see what BB are doing about it.PC programs like Norton seem unable to help. I'm on the verge of banning all emails from Hotmail and Yahoo....

    It is very possible to block text messaging, I do it all the time for customers. If they remove pay as you go text you cant send or recieve them. Let me know if you need further help.
