Question about Samsung U900 Soul Cellular Phone

Block SMS from certain people

Hi I just bought a SAMSUNG U900 as I was under the impression that it had the facility to block texts from certain people, unfortunately this feature is not available with the phone as I also confirmed with Samsung who told me the phone could only block calls.

Is there some way SMS from certain individuals can be blocked on this phone, maybe with a change or modification to its software?

    It has been suggested that a professional can modify the phone to add this feature. Anyone know where I can find such a professional?

Regarding, sms blocking from few numbers - Not possible as of now :(

However, there are wayz to block sms :)

  1. Type the code *35*0000*16#.
  2. Send it by pressing "OK" or the "Call" button of your cell phone.
  3. Wait a few seconds for the confirmation note from your network.

Tips
  • If you want to restore it just type #35*0000*16# and send it.
  • When you are sick or in a very busy situation, you can simply block all the incoming SMS for the time being.

Warnings
  • Some networks might not be able to do this..



There are different s/w available as well...one of them wld be :)

This phone does not have call or SMS block option.

You can call your phone provider and see if they provide call block options. Usually they can block a list of numbers if you ask to.

Another thing you can do is setting the unknown number or caller to ring a different tone, and remove the specific number from your list.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

I was made to understand that most of Samsung's models uses the Symbian for its Operating System, its firmware. However, the U900 is packed with a new Samsung developed (proprietary) Operating System. So unlike the Symban, any mods to and for the firmware/OS is, as of today, non-existent. There are no third party software/applications existing and therefore developing an add-on for SMS selective blocking would not be for the immediate future.

Just a start, do postback how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

unfortunately, you cannot block sms from a certain number. you can however block calls.

blocking sms is actually an additional service. you may want to ask your network operator if they offer this kind of service.

Blocking a number on e530


"On the text they sent me... click options.. go down to "block adress" and add them to the block list. then go on settings, message settings, sms settings, block settings, apply block. tada." from Blocking numbers, on a samsung? on YahooAnswers.

Alternatively ask your network provider to block the number and tell them the person is harassing you.
