Verizon SMS

Here's the lowdown on how to use SMS with a Verizon phone.

  • Maximum message length: 160 characters, including the sender's email address, subject line, and callback number
  • What happens to longer messages: Everything after the 160th character will be cut off and discarded
  • Cost per message: 15 cents for each text message you send or receive, 25 cents for picture and video messages ("PIX and FLIX" messages) -- or less, if you sign up for an "IN Messaging" package, starting at $10/month for 500 messages.
  • More information: Verizon TXT Messaging FAQ
  • Sending email to a Verizon phone: Use the address format [10-digit-number or vtext nickname]@vtext.com. Example: 9495551212@vtext.com or Sam@vtext.com

Anonymous -- This is what it costs a Verizon subscriber to send or receive an SMS message. I'll update the copy to make sure that's clear!
 
Is there a way to block messages from a specific number or source (I'm getting some kind of "spam" message I'd like to stop)
 
Anonymous, Verizon does let you block SMS messages from specific sources, or even block all messages that come from the web.

Go to www.vtext.com and go to the "My TXT" menu and click on "TXT Blocking". You'll have to sign in with your mobile number and password. From there you should be able to set up the spam filters you need.
 
it says my sms network is busy when i try to get onto mobile im. and then it says to wait a few seconds but i can never get on. it has been busy for at least a week. how do i prevent it from being busy.
 
hey, my name is dylan too! awesome. well this site really helped. thanks
 
I set up blocking on a specific number with the sprint network and the person still isn't blocked. I blocked her with exactly the way her message came in:
10digitno@MESSAGING.SPRINTPCS.COM
What am I doing wrong? Do I need to do something with my phone?

Pics are sent with a different protocol! SMS is for text only.
Plus, it is vTEXT...

Thanks for the pricing info and URL.
