    Default Spam messages: no number, just a name.

    I've been getting numerous spam messages on my iphone - never with a number, just a name (which comes up on the message, despite my not having the person as a contact). They're happening daily - and apart from being annoyed (which I am) I want to know how they can name sender, and not have a number attached (when I hit the 'i' it just says the name, nothing else). They're not iMessages as they're not blue, always grey. I haven't tried calling the sender, because I don't want them to see that my number is active (if they I even do that, which I'm not sure because this whole thing is confusing).

    Also, any ideas on how to stop these?

    Welcome to iMore!

    Sorry you're having this issue. Try this and see if it works. Not sure how it will take no number but they may have it blocked somehow?
