Cell phone spam: Hum. Nothing new, but it is more prevalent than ever.

Yesterday a local newspaper (El Nuevo Dia) featured the Los spams ahora atacan a los celulares article in which few local sources were inquired on the subject.

Unfortunately they all seem to miss the point.

Telephone companies are indoubtly making money from spam, and quite a lot. So, why kill the money making machine? Duh!

Don’t just take my word. Look around for a second opinion like this one:

Verizon Won’t Help You Filter Out SMS Spam Because It Makes Them Money

If that is not enough, then check why

Indeed, cell phone spam “is the perfect storm of annoying attributes. It audibly interrupts your life like telemarketing”.
