If you use your smartphone for more than just email, you’ll be aware that it can be susceptible to SMS spam.
This can happen even if your phone is completely wiped clean.
So what can you do if your iPhone has SMS spam?
Luckily, there are a few different methods that can be used to remove SMS spam from your phone.
If you’re using an iPhone 6 or older, it will have a special settings menu which allows you to delete SMS messages from it.
You can then go into Settings > Messages, and tap Delete SMS messages.
This will delete all the messages that are sent from your smartphone to the company you’re sending the messages to.
If your phone isn’t that old, you can use the settings menu to delete all of your messages from that phone, too.
This method isn’t the best option for every situation, but it’s a very simple way to remove any spam from the phone.
Alternatively, if your smartphone is just a little older, you may be able to get rid of SMS spam by setting up a backup SMS account.
This is where you’ll want to keep your phone’s data safe, but keep the SMS spam away from the contacts you’re having conversations with.
For this, you’re going to need to make a backup of your SMS messages to a text file on your computer.
