In recent days, an unknown number of T-Mobile customers made noise across social media and on various online message boards about the sudden influx of spam text messages hitting their mobile devices.
The carrier, we’re happy to report, has managed to identify the source of the problem and stop it in its tracks.
The problem seemed to rear its ugly head towards the end of last month, and over the past couple of weeks. There are several entries on T-Mobile support pages explaining the issue, with multiple commenters suffering. If you have been receiving more Spam recently, be assured, you are not the only one.
Over the weekend, Tmo News shared a statement from T-Mobile that has since put many more minds at ease.
“Our teams have now identified and blocked the sources of the unwanted text messages,” the statement reads. ” We apologize to any customers who may have been inconvenienced.”
So what was the underlying issue? According to the same report, the majority of spam messages may have been little more than just a “miscommunication between T-Mobile’s SMS/Email gateway.” In short, there was an issue with tmomail.com — an issue that has been resolved.
