Not all carriers allow that. check with yours. I know mine won't. Only Non smart phones can sent a picture text. Dumb I know, but true.

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.

I have a galaxys1114g and i don't know how to send a photo to another mobile.


using the default messaging app (which i hate BTW, check out handcent. far better IMO)
make a new message (the pencil on paper icon on the upper right)
Click the paperclip icon
find the photo and click on it (if it asks what app you want to use pick gallery, its easiest)
you should be back in the message with you picture in the messaging box and a popup message that says converting to mms message
send

Can not receive picture messaging


Try using an app instead of the stock messaging app. I use 'Handcent SMS'. It's free for Androids, Iphones, and Windows Phones. It will allow downloading and uploading any pictures as long as your data is turned on and connected.

Hope this helps!

How can I replace the fixed, default sms icon on the home page, with the Handcent icon?


you need to disable default SMS, as well as turn off message retrieval with default SMS. you can press and hold on the home screen and edit which icons are present. once the handcent icon is on the home screen you should be able to press and hold on the sms icon at the bottom and drag it to home and then press, hold, and drag the handcent icon to take its place. good luck!

Text messages to multiple people on the G1


Download Handcent SMS from the web browser. It allows you to scroll through your address book and check the contacts you want to add. Pretty handy:)
