These SMS spams constitute a veritable nuisance to the mobilesubscribers. This marketing practice also worries service providers in view of the fact that it upsets theirclients or even causes them lose subscribers. By way of mitigating this practice, researchers have proposedseveral solutions for the detection and filtering of SMS spams. In this paper, we present a review ofthe currently available methods, challenges, and future research directions on spam detection techniques,filtering, and mitigation of mobile SMS spams. The existing research literature is critically reviewed andanalyzed. The most popular techniques for SMS spam detection, filtering, and mitigation are compared,including the used data sets, their findings, and limitations, and the future research directions are discussed.This review is designed to assist expert researchers to identify open areas that need further improvement.
