It sounds like you will need to disable IM Forwarding. Normally you go into the AOL Instant Messenger settings and turn it off there.

Is it spam messages you are getting?

No not spam, just harassment. I think I blocked it, not sure. Got a site by searching to block "aim" text messages.
I think you can also put in "block" when you receive the text. I have AT&T trying to find out who it is now.
Hope they do.

Thanks for your help.

I wonder if it was the same site I found while googling the issue too. Seems to happen to quite a few people. I am glad you were able to resolve it. I hope AT&T can figure out who it is.
