Verizon bolsters spam protection features

Mike Robuck of Mobile World Live reports on a new SMS and call spam protection option for Verizon Wireless users here in the US: an updated free Call Filter app.

I just downloaded it myself and it seemed pretty easy to set up. I recommend checking it out. Of course, they immediately tried to upsell me to a paid version, but I'm going with just the free version for now (I already do pay them quite a bit of money every month). The ability to report phone numbers as spammy, and benefit from others reporting phone numbers as spammy, is a wonderful thing to see here -- Google Voice has had something similar to this for a long time now and I've wished for the same thing at the mobile provider level.

Read the article here and then head on over here to learn more from Verizon and/or to download the app.
