Carriers are only capable of responding to spam emanating from their users. Spammers do not send SMS spam from mobile phones, they send it from off the network, perhaps using a shortcode service, to deliver to users on multiple networks.
While an SMS spam complaint option seems like a good idea, calling your carrier is just as easy. While they can't 'police' off-site spammers, most carriers (if not all) have a way to block messages from certain senders, and I would imagine they are likely to give credit when spam is reported as the level of SMS spam is incredibly low, just as is the level of cell phone telemarketing -- because it's easily traced and very costly when it gets to court.
