Text Messaging How can I block one number from sending to mine

  • mvl3589 Jul 08, 2008

    I have the exact same problem and after looking at this site, I realized that it HAS to be the Samsung SYNC SGH-A707 Cellular Phone.



    1. Can NOT block text and AT&T says the only solution is to change MY number????????

    2. One of the three SGH-A707's just blacked out with the lower 1/2 looking like a line graph. If I open the phone and close the front display works, but the inside screen does NOT.

    3. Constant lost/dropped calls since day one. Sims card was replaced, but still drops call or displays emergency calls only???????



    *****

    And AT&T wants $210 for a new one; That would be out of my pocket $640 times 2 = $1,280 for 3 phones for 1 year. Hmmmmm. They HAVE to have better options!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I've never tried this, but it might help. If that number is in your recent calls list, one of the options is to reject that number. Might work for texting too.

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.

My phone wont send text meassages


Make sure you have the 'Messaging Center' number properly set. Also, you'll need to have Text Messaging enabled on your phone. Contacting your operator (network) will help.

I cant recieve or send texts out of no where but i can recieve and send calls


You may want to call your wireless provider to make sure they haven't blocked text messaging on your account. I had text messaging blocked on my account for a while because I had two children on my account and couldn't trust them not to run up the bill.
