How To Stop Unwanted Text Messages From 6250 That Say VZWNMN:1

Here is a cliff notes version of what is causing these unwanted texts:

Verizon introduced a new free feature some time ago called “sync and connect,and this allows smartphone users to view an all-in-one inbox online of all of their email account messages.  This includes access to their email accounts through My Verizon, and basically users are getting alerts via text message when a new email hits their inbox.  You caaaaaaaaan add this number to your block list to keep your phone from getting these alerts, but this is really only the equivalent of putting a bandaid on on the issue to mask the problem.  You want to completely stop them right?  Continue reading…

1.  First, log into your My Verizon Account.

2.  On the left and side of the screen, under Account Management, click on Change Features.     You may have to click the drop down to expand the menu.

    BTW, unfortunately, this fix doesn’t seem to have worked for me either: it’s been 24 hours since I removed the backup+ service from my phone’s features, and I continue to get messages from ‘6250’ at the rate of at least one per hour.
