How to stop Verizon spam notifications

I keep getting notifications for some spammy photo printing service from verizon cloud. How do I turn off these notifications while still receiving notifications for when I run out of space? Other answers by verizon say that it is a new feature and they havent had time to give the option to disable the spammy notifications on the app.  That was a lie. We all know it. You know it.

But now it's been almost a year and verizon still hasn't done anything. Now it is neglect. Or just hatred or being unconcerned about bothering millions of your customers.

How do I disable this unnecessary photo printing notification????????

We know how important it is to only get notifications that you want, bcollins281. We are here to help review those alerts. The only way to stop those notifications is to un-enroll from Verizon Cloud. The alerts to offering the photo printing service is part of the Cloud service.

We apologize, but at this time there is no way to stop those notifications when still wanting to use the Verizon Cloud service.

This is unacceptable!

I've been a VZW customer for many years. Now your telling me that I can NOT utilize the cloud backup service that is included with my plan without receiving these spam messages??

I dont think so. I will disable the Verizon Cloud service for good and solely use another backup app.

And when I am ready to upgrade my cell phone and wireless plan, I will be moving to another carrier/provider that does not force spam on thier customers in order to use thier cloud backup service.

I agree that this is completely unacceptable.  I don't pay Verizon to spam me. I did not receive these messages until I got a new phone last month. Explain that one... And then give us the option to opt of your ridiculous spam.

Hey Verizon.  This is a stupid answer.

So my only options are to uninstall the App or disable all notifications.  The former means I can't use the service.  The latter means I don't get useful information.

I AM NOT PAYING YOU $240 PER MONTH TO SHOVE YOUR INANE JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE ADS DOWN MY THROAT.  PLEASE IMAGINE SOME VERY SELECT CURSE WORDS WRITTEN HERE.

Did I already say this is a stupid answer?

Chill. Like the other person said. Go to Settings > Notifications > Find the app named 'Cloud' and disable notificationg.

Just an update.

The google notification setting will impact all notifications from the cloud app.  We added a feature now that you can select what type of cloud application notifications you want to receive.

 

If you have a current version of the Cloud app, you can open the Cloud app, go to Settings, go to Notifications manager and select which type of notifications you wish to stop receiving.

Found the disable. Strange that the notification is "Cloud" and not something more specific like "Marketing".
