Is there anything I can do about the spam my kid's phone gets?

Cell phone spam (unsolicited bulk messages) is a growing problem, and if kids click on these ads, they may unwittingly give away information or opt into a service. Call your cell phone company to report the problem; they may ask you to forward the spam to a specific number. Then block the caller, either by using your phone's settings or by going through your carrier.
