ATLANTA -- AT&T customers can now report unwanted text messages as spam.

Anytime you get an unwanted message, you can forward the message and the sender's phone number to 7726 (SPAM) free of charge.

AT&T will use 7726 reports to identify and confirm the number is spamming customers, and then block the number from sending additional messages.

Examples of spam messages include sweepstakes entries or giveaways.
