What To Do About Wireless Spam?

While most discussions about wireless spam focus on SMS-based spam to your mobile phones, some are pointing out that regular spam is becoming a huge problem in the wireless world. Since more and more people are carrying smartphones or wireless pagers that do email, your regular email is showing up everywhere you go. If you’re receiving a lot of spam normally, then you’re receiving a lot of spam on the go, as well. Some are even saying it makes their Blackberries, and other such devices, much less useful. People point out that it’s really giving them a double dose of spam. Once at the office, and again on the mobile device. Of course, since the problem is regular spam – and there are tons of people working on it with no easy solutions yet, it doesn’t seem like this problem is going to go away any time soon.
