cell_scaled.jpgThe New York Times' David Pogue put together a super-helpful list of ways to block text message spam on your cell phone, covering most major wireless carriers. Each involves logging in at your cell provider's web site and heading to often unadvertised blocking features.

Got a nice multi-carrier solution to share? Let's hear about it in the comments. Photo by Kirill.
