Tired of spam? Then dial SPAM, Telus says

Vancouver-based Telus Corp. has set up an easy way for people who receive spam text messages not to be charged -- just forward the message to "spam" or 7726.

Put the word "spam" in the text and the charge will be taken off the bill, Telus spokesman Shawn Hall said in an interview.

On Monday both Telus and Bell Mobility revealed plans to charge 15 cents for incoming messages starting in August. Under current wireless plans, pay-per-use customers are charged for outgoing messages only.
