Better control of incoming text messages

It would be nice if we could manage our text message whitelist/blacklist/etc. from the web-based dashboard rather than through the text-to-9999 interface, as it would be a lot easier to manage that way.

Also, it's aggravating to receive a few txt spams and get charged $3 when those are the only txts I received. (I don't want to just disable txting outright because I need incoming texting for work, but there is ONE and ONLY ONE phone number that can come from.)

Basically I'd like to be able to more thoroughly control which text messages I receive from the dashboard, and have an option to disable all messages except from specific trusted senders.

  • You get charged for those texts because Sprint charges Ting. The 9999 interface is provided by Sprint. They would need to provide Ting some sort of API access to the system before Ting could do much else.

  • Whether Ting is charged for those individual messages or not, it's still a bad customer experience to be charged $3/month for the privilege of receiving a single spam text.

    It wouldn't be so bad if we could get pure utility pricing for text messages, though. I'd be fine with paying, say, 20 cents a text for the first 15 texts, or whatever.
