Blocking text messages

i'd  like to know  how to block  text messages  from  certain  numbers....  usually from annoying  scammers  who aren't  who  they seem  to be  &  would  like  to  block it  some  how?  can it be  done on the  call reject  or is that just for  calls  &  not  texts?

Hello Dk3,

 

  Welcome to the community!

 

  What phone are you using? Some of the android phones (possibly iPhones as well) have an option to add the sender's number to your phone's spam list (different from call block/reject list). To check whether your phone has a similar function, select the offending message and view the message options. One of the options might be Add to spam numbers

 

Hope this helps Smiley
