On your home screen select an icon that says: profile(phone only). Scroll down to advanced and click. Click again on phone only and a menu will open. Scroll down to sms messages or any other application you wish. Don"t forget to look for where it says mute, that's what u have to change :)

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 come the ding goes away on messenger. This is on a I phone 5


Marie, are you talking about the Text Messenger or Facebook Messenger? If it is the Text Messenger, try going to Settings -> Notifications -> Message. Once there, check if the "Notification Sound" is shown as set to "None". If so, click there and chose the ding you want. If you're looking for a solution to the Facebook Messenger, go to Settings -> Notifications -> and scroll down until you find the Facebook Messenger icon. Click on it and check if your notification is setup correctly as: Notification: On; Sounds: On. You can also check if the "Do Not Disturb" feature is disabled - this will put your phone to just ignore any income call, text, or notifications in general. Please follow the following link for more details about this feature. http://www.imore.com/how-to-setup-use-do-not-disturb-iphone-ipad

How do i change tone for messages? and can i do i reminder message tone every 1 minuet


To change ringtones and message tones I use one of two apps.
Zedge has a large selection of sounds for you to select and download for free and it will give you the option to add it as a ringtone or notification tone.
Or you can use Ringdroid this allows you to add any mp3 file you want and again you can do it as a ringtone or notification.
So those are two fantastic apps that I use a lot. Zedge also has a large selection of wallpapers for you as well.
Now if this still doesn't work then if you go Settings/Sound/Notification Ringtone this will bring up a menu system that will allow you to select a sound either one installed on the phone from boot or one you have added yourself.
This should help you, also selecting Phone Ringtone instead of Notification Ringtone then the same kind of menu system will come up.

Hope this helps.

Motorazr V3 Status indicator no longers displays envelope for voice messages


Why am I receiving a memory full notification? space.gif space.gif answer.gif Memory full warning notifications are shown once the SMS memory reaches 80% full, which is 80 out of 100 SMS.
The notifications show up every time on receiving a new message. On reaching 100%, "Memory full notification" message is shown and no new messages will be received until we make space for incoming messages by deleting some from the inbox.
Memory full warning notices are shown only if "Auto Erase Inbox" is set to Off in Messaging settings (Menu -> Settings -> Messaging).
If set to On, then these notices are not shown. By default this is set to Off.
