Re: Text messages from Facebook

I have a problem but it has nothing to do with my Facebook account. I just got a new iPhone 8 last week new number and everything and it seems some lady had my number before me and I'm getting text messages from her Facebook account. is there a way I could disable or block those messages coming into my phone?

Re: Text messages from Facebook

Hello @rodimusprime,

 

Welcome to the Community Forums, and thanks for your inquiry.

 

It's totally annoying to receive unwanted texts, even more so when they're intended for someone else!

 

Can you try the below instructions from Facebook and let us know if you have any luck?

 

1. Start a new text to 32665.
2. Type Stop in the body.
3. Send the text to stop messages.

 

Keep us posted!

Hello @rodimusprime,

 

I'm not sure if a notification text is sent to confirm the changes as I've never tried it myself. I recommend posting your concern on the Facebook Help Center. They may be better suited to answer your query.

 

Cheers,

Re: Text messages from Facebook

Hello guys, I would like to know if this feature will costs something on my bill (receive only)https://www.facebook.com/help/130694300342171?helpref=faq_content

I have unlimited canada texting, so is this considered premium sms and will this costs extra ?

Also verification codes from fb, google etc..(two factor authentification) costs anything ?

 

Edit: Also what about this (receive+send https://itstillworks.com/facebook-chat-text-message-cell-21123.html)

Can I use sms to send messages to facebook without internet data plan ? Will this costs something extra ?

Re: Text messages from Facebook

Good evening @Gabriel505,

 

Welcome and thanks for posting your situation to the Community!

It's definitely best to make sure you will not be charged before using a service.

 

Facebook doesn't charge you for using Facebook texts. However, standard rates for sending and receiving text messages (SMS) still apply.

 

Using the text message feature simply requires that you are covered for text messages as part of your plan.

Same goes for verification codes, as they count for incoming text messages.

 

I am hoping the Facebook SMS feature will better your Social Media experience when you don't have access to an internet connection!
