    Unsolicited Text Messages from AT&T

    This morning i got 4 unsolicited text messages from AT&T, one after another, boom, boom, boom boom. They came from 1111487727 and the identical messages read:

    AT&T Free Message
    Thanks for sharing your DATA experience. We'll use your submission to help improve our network.

    I wonder what prompted such a flurry of text messages? I have not submitted a "Mark the Spot" in months. I know they are automated responses, but is the number they are sent from identifiable?

    I also got flooded with the MTS messages. 30 of them at around 2:30am.
    Mine were all the automated messages responding to coverage reports.
    Thank goodness for Do Not Disturb!

    I am just now getting them. I have submitted mark the spot but it was a week or more ago and got a response right after sending them. Now I have gotten 4 or 5 in 30 seconds.

    Clearly, there is a major glitch going on to have that many messages being sent to you in one day. I suspect that these are legitimate from At&t but for whatever reason the system is not recognizing that the message was delivered and keeps resending the message. I recommend calling customer service to have this documented on the account. When enough trouble tickets are created by CS, tech will look into the issue. Hopefully, it is currently under investigation or resolution. I have no way to say either way.
    Just another day in paradise.....

    I’ve blocked the number. It’s crazy.

    Or maybe this means that techs are now seeing the reports submissions and now doing something about them to improve service ?
    Two great smartphone apps to find cell towers and map actual coverage areas
    1. Cellmapper
    2. OpenSignal
    If You're With AT&T Wireless as your Cell Provider, Use the "AT&T Mark The Spot App" to report an issues with your service, like, no connection, slow speeds, no coverage, drop calls...etc
