You will not be enrolled in a "mailing list" when you subscribe to this service. Message frequency varies.
State Farm also offers one-time text messages. You will not be enrolled in any recurring text message program or text message "mailing list". Customers may text a keyword (FAST, QUICK, CAR, SAVE, and AUTO) to 78836 (ST8FM) and receive information on how you can save on auto insurance.
