    Default Go sms is spamming!

    Ok so I love go sms. My only real problem is that I get text messages regarding new themes. I got 3 today. I don't want any spam advertising about new themes. Is there a way to opt out? I paid for a theme and like my theme. It's annoying as hell.

    I left all go products along time ago. To much spam. And wait till you get ads in your notification bar. Super annoying.

    Do what I did, use their app against themselves, just add that contact to you blacklist in GoSMS, that way you will never see another spam message from GoSMS. Works perfectly.

    I switched to Chomp long ago and never looked back. Too much Go bloatware and having to pay every 6 months for Facebook avatars really turned me off. Get these with Chomp for free, and no bloat or spamming.

    Yes I installed chomp last night and I haven't been happier! I paid the small fee to remove ads. I don't mind doing that for a good product.

    Don't trust anything from "Go", all that stuff is Chinese spam crap. I just use Chomp

    The blacklist worked for me too. I'm not a fan of go, but they are the only app I've found that handles group sms well. I have too many friends with iphones and it's native group text, so this is a necessity for me.

    The blacklist did not work for me. I had to set up private Inbox and have them all sent there directly. I was getting them every 2-3 minutes! If it happens again, I'm ditching the Go app, already got rid of the launcher. Too many good apps out there to put up with this spamming crap.

    What?! ...I'm msndrstood.

    Oddly enough, I got spammed a lot from GoSMS when I was on my Nexus 4. But since I've switched back to my GS3, I really don't get any spam from them at all. Interesting, I wonder if there's any correlation here.

    I have always loved GO SMS, but have gotten less impressed with several of the last updates. And then getting no less that 25 texts about the winter theme is enough for me to change. Based on this thread, I downloaded Chomp and love it so far! Thanks for the suggestions

    same here but its the spring theme and they are sending me a sms about 6 or 7 times a day, GO products were awesome but when they went to getjar thats what ticked me off and i stopped using them and the fact that they are completely a chinese company was another decision

    That plus disable blacklist notifications.

    What I'd like to do is disable the colored valentine's day balloons messing with my conversation view. Anyone have a way of doing this?

    Nope, its another example of bloat with Go.
