You can easily block text messages from any number you want, using more than just one method. If you believe you are okay with receiving few texts every day, then think again, because you are also paying for them unless you have an unlimited SMS plan. Below is a Simple way on How To Block Text Messages
In this tutorial, we will show you how you can block texts from different numbers using different methods. Not all of the methods will work for you, but if you need help with any method let us know in the comments below.
If your phone is running Android Kitkat or above, then your default messaging app must have a spam filter. This is the easiest and fastest way of blocking text messages without any hassle of checking out third-party apps or services.
The process is quite simple, just tap and hold the text message of the sender and after a short delay you will be given the option to either delete the message or add to spam. You will be able to see the both options in a menu or icons of the options will be shown above the screen (depending on your device). Just tap on “Add to Spam” and confirm the prompt to blacklist the number of the sender, so you will never receive messages from them again.
However, if you would need more control and blocking power, then there are more built-in options as well.
To access these options, tap on the menu at the top right corner of the screen (its the three vertical dots) and from there tap on Settings.
In Settings, scroll down and tap on “Spam filter”, make sure the button on the top right corner of the screen is “green” to ensure the feature is “On”. There you will see three different options that will provide more control.
Add to spam numbers
This option will let you add numbers manually or from contacts and logs to block all texts from the specific numbers.
Add to spam phrases
This option will let you specify “Words” that when used in a text will automatically mark it as spam. This is quite handy as spammers usually use common keywords which you can specify to block them. This option might also work good against spammers who use alphanumeric numbers to prevent being marked as spam.
Caution: Be very carefully while adding words to be blocked, as all the messages will be blocked which contain that specific word. If you will block a common word, then most probably important texts from other people will also be marked as spam.
Block Unknown Senders
When this option is checked, you will only receive messages from people who are in your contact list. This is a simple but very risky option as you might miss many important texts from people who you know, but are not in your contact list.
Just use all the above mentioned options to control who can send you a text and who can’t.
