how to block text messages


You can block text messages from a specific number or contact on your Android device with a third-party solution. Just follow these steps.


Blocking Text Messages

Option 1

Note: These steps are for the stock “Messaging” app included with Android 5. Some carriers may include a different app for messaging.

Open “Messaging“.
Press the “Menu” Menu icon icon located at the upper-right corner.
Select “Blacklist“.
Set “Blacklist” to “On“, then select the plus (+) to add a person to block.
Type the number you wsih to block. Check “Block incoming calls” and/or “Block incoming messages” as desired, then select “OK“.
If you wish to remove a number from Blacklist, select the number, then choose “Delete“.
Option 2

If your messaging app does not offer a Blacklist option, use Handcent.

Download and install Handcent SMS for your text messaging needs. It’s available in the Google Play store.
Since you’ll be using Handcent for text messaging, disable the notifications for your current text messaging app. Otherwise, you’ll get double notifications for text messages.
Open Handcent then select the “Menu” Android menu button icon at the upper left corner of the screen, then select the gear in the lower left corner of the screen.
Select “Security & privacy” > “Manage blacklist“.
Tap the plus (+) icon to add the phone number you wish to block. You can choose one from your contacts, call logs, or input the number directly.


Now all of the text messages from that person will be blocked and not visible in the Handcent app. You won’t get notifications you’ve received a message from the person either. If you ever want to unblock the person, return to the “Manage blacklist” screen, tap it, then select “Unblacklist“.

Some users have reported that the app “Private Space” works well for them.

Sending an Automatic Reply

If you want to let a person know they have been blocked, you will need to download and install SwiftReply. SwiftReply will allow you to setup an auto reply for specific Contacts.

Ensure the mobile number you wish to block is listed in your Contacts.
Open “SwiftReply” and tap the plus icon (+) to make a new auto-reply.
Type the name you would like to use for the reply and the text you would like to send to the person.
Scroll down and select “Enable User Filter” > “Contacts“.
Tap “Add” and choose the people in your Contacts list that you would like to receive the reply. Tap “Done” when your list is complete.
Tap “Save“, then tap “Off” to turn the auto-reply on.
The specified people will now receive your message automatically and Handcent will block them from your view.

how do I empty my Iphone mailbox


Doesn't matter which folder you're in, it works the same - just hit "Edit" at the top - all of the emails scoot to the right revealing a faint circle. Tap the circle next to the message you want to delete and it'll turn red. There will then be a button at the botton that says "Delete" with the number of msgs you've selected in parentheses.

If you want to totally empty every message, you'll have to select each one and then delete them, but in the trash folder there will be a button that says "Delete All" at the bottom after you hit "Edit"

form creat in flash


  1. Create a new document and set the size to 400 x 300 ("Frame" > "Frame Size")
  2. Set "Frame 1" to "Stop" ("Frame" > "Frame Delay" and check "Stop", click OK)
  3. Draw 2 edit fields with the "Edit field" tool, they will appear as Edit1 and Edit2. Double click each field and make sure HTML is not checked, uncheck if necessary.
  4. Draw a button, double-click it and rename it to "OK".
  5. Draw edit field labels "Phone" and "Email" with the text tool. Double click each field and make sure HTML is not checked, uncheck if necessary.
  6. Draw "ErrorMessage" field with the "Text Paragraph" tool. Choose "Item" > "Text Color" and change it to red. Choose "Item" > "Placement Properties" and rename the field to "ErrorMessage"
    1. Select the button, choose "Item" > "Actions" > "OnClick". Select "ActionScript" and paste the following code:

    // reset error message
    ErrorMessage = "";

    // validate phone field
    phone = Edit1;
    if(phone=="") ErrorMessage = "Enter your phone";

    // validate email field
    email = Edit2;
    if(email=="") ErrorMessage = "Enter your email";
    if(email.indexOf("@",0)<0) ErrorMessage = "Enter valid email";
    if(email.indexOf(".",0)<0) ErrorMessage = "Enter valid email";

    // build message string
    message = "mailto:support@selteco.com?subject=Title&body=Form contents%0A";
    message = message + "phone: " + phone + "%0A";
    message = message + "email: " + email;

    // execute form if errormessage is empty
    if(ErrorMessage=="") getURL(message,"_self");

Hit F9 to preview. The form will not work until you export Flash file and HTML page. Choose "File" > "Export HTML Page" to create HTML page and test the form in a browser. This form is using very basic validation. Use "%0A" as line separator.
Use the following functions or attributes of the string:
  • length returns the number of characters
  • charAt(x) returns zero-based character at position x
  • indexOf(substring,startindex) returns the position of the first occurrence of the specified substring or -1.
  • lastIndexOf(substring,startindex) returns the position of the last occurrence of the specified substring or -1.
  • substr(start,n) returns n characters string starting at specified position
  • toLowerCase(), toUpperCase() converts the string to lower or upper case
