If you’re as sick as I am of receiving “SprintFreeMsg” SMS advertisements on your phone, it’s actually quite easy to remove yourself from their list. Simply text STOP, in all caps, back to the solicitor (2222) and you’ll receive a notification that you’re removed from their spam lists (Note: I’m not certain why the messages appear out of order on my phone, but my reply was sent before their response). Now, I cannot assure you that this simple action won’t automatically add you to a host of other spam lists, as unsubscribing from certain newsletters online may do, but I can ensure that you won’t receive ads from Sprint anymore.

I like the part where he says “pizza”
