From the day I activated an i-phone 3 gs I have received one text message a day with a "win an i-pad" message by answering a silly multiple choice message and texting back to 55 155.
On my last bill I had a $60 add on that seemed to be related for accessing special services. Rogers customer services quickly credited the account when called and said they would cease but they're still coming.
I have texted back "stop", "stop all" and several other suggested options, all to not avail.
Any suggestions as to how to end to this annoying intrusion or block further messages would be helpful....
Solved! Solved! Go to Solution.
The spam messages are unfortunate. Everyone is affected by this not just you. If You see that the message is from a 9 digit number ie: 333 33x xxx or 222 22x xxx then its NOT coming from a phone number. Someone is spamming emails to the Rogers SMS E-mail gateway which is firstname.lastname@example.org. as of current, rogers has no way to properly block this or turn off the @sms.rogers.com gateway.
I've noticed over the summer that my wife and I have received an increased amount of junk texts. All of the texts are random. Some being for surveys, others being mystery shop jobs and some have sexual harassment. We can try blocking the numbers but we keep receiving them from other numbers. Some of these numbers are 222-2222 or +1(647) 962-2791, +1(519) 551-4681. I also received a message from someone in the UK +86 130-7861-1654...These are just a feew examples. I'm really getting tired of these messages and want to know if there is anything I can do. Is there a setting on the phone (Iphone 6) that I'm missing? Will Rogers do anything? Is anyone else getting these stupid messages?
Unfortunately in this case, there isn't much that we can do to stop spammers that continually change their numbers using software applications. I recommend that you report any spam texts you receive here:
The more reports they get, the better our chances at putting a permanent stop to this behaviour.
Thanks for reaching out and sharing your experience, and my apologies for the delayed response.
I'm sorry to hear about the unexpected charge. If you'd like us to look into this further for you, please feel free to send a private message to @CommunityHelps. If you're not familiar with this process, please check out this Blog.
Thanks for joining us here in the Rogers Community Forums and congrats on your first post! 😄
I know in this day and age, it can be pretty difficult to know if a communication you are receiving is a legitimate one! When in doubt, it's always a good idea to ask. 👌
We send SMSs from short codes (4-6 digit numbers) instead of 10-digit phone numbers and we reference the URL: rogers.com.
Messages sent from short code '4735' should be legitimate communications from Rogers. I have received text messages from that same short code myself.
If you prefer not to receive any further marketing communications from Rogers, we can submit the request for you if you send us a Private Message to @CommunityHelps. For more information on how our Private Messaging system works, please CLICK HERE.
Please note: It may take up to 10 days for your information to be added to the Internal Do Not Call List. Customers may still be contacted during the first 10 days after registering.
Just a friendly reminder when receiving a message from an unknown source: For your own safety and security, please DO NOT click on any links/URL in the messages and do not provide the sender with any personal information.
If you feel that the message is suspicious and could be possible spam, please forward the content of the SMS to 7726 (SPAM), to register it for investigation and blocking from the Rogers network (as mentioned by @57).
You can also block the sender from sending you future messages by accessing your device's Options/Settings.
I hope this helps!

When you have an opportunity, please have a look at my previous post. I provided some information on how to determine if a text message is legitimately from Rogers, as well as advice on how to handle questionable or unwanted messages.
I hope you find the information in this thread useful! If you have any other questions or thoughts that you'd like to share with the Community, please feel free to post again!
