    Sometimes, my friends and I receive SMS messages from spam emails. Our phones have a spam filter setting, but the filter only allows you to block numbers and phrases (there's no way to block emails). Please answer as soon as possible!

    Check with your carrier. Often times they have a special number you can forward the spam to so that they can block it on the servers.

    I'm a little unclear on this. Are you getting spam emails or sms messages? The two are completely different so please clear that up for us.

    My friends and I get spam SMS messages from random emails. It's just so annoying! By the way, our carrier is Cricket. Cricket doesn't seem to be mentioned so much in Android Central compared to other carriers, though, so it's harder to find ways to solve my problems.

    Not sure what you mean by "SMS messages from random emails".
    Are you saying that the messages are emails sent to the address "123-456-7890@txt.cricket.com"?

    No, the messages are sent by emails to my number. And the emails seem really suspicious! They're often the ones that point to "free prize" or "lucky winner" scams.

    If the SMS messages are coming from an email-to-sms gateway, you need to talk to your carrier to see what help they can give you.
