Using a mobile phone to repeatedly send unsolicited text messages to another person. The text messages may be a form of sexual harassment, abuse or bullying via text. Victims of textual harassment can request their cellphone provider to block texts (and calls) coming from a specific number, but with the capability to text from computer, the perpetrator could still send harassing text messages to the victim s mobile phone.
