Why is my phone receiving random text messages from 8 digit numbers such as 32665121 and 32665122 and so on. These are getting very annoying and appear to be coming from some sort of party line. I block each one as they come but they keep coming from more numbers.

I thought this at first as well, however I have removed facebook from my phone. The first one or two messages had a fb tag too it and gave option of stopping the messages by texting back with (mute). None of them have the fb tag anymore, the messages are from sequential numbers and all content has something to do with partys. I have an anti virus that allows me to block them but they just send from next number in the sequence.

Since they are texts, try replying with the word STOP

Yes i can imagine how hard is dealing with those messages coming from sequential numbers. But for now there is no known solution to stop them. One of my friend told me that he had this problem but it stopped suddenly as it started. The prob should be fixed by it own . Meanwhile keep deleting them.
