Question about Cell Phones
Request selective call blocking. Contact your cell phone provider (the customer service number is on your monthly statement, as well as on the main page of their website) and ask if they offer blocking on incoming numbers with Unknown or Restricted caller IDs. Depending on your provider, this is either a free service or there is a monthly charge.
Some companies offer call blocking as a centralized network service. Usually, there will be options either to create a list of blocked numbers or to prevent all calls except those from a list of pre-approved numbers. This option may not be as attractive as the others, as your provider may charge a monthly fee for this service, or it may make updating your lists more difficult. However, a distinction is made for calls that are deemed to be harassment or stalking; such calls should be blocked by your carrier at no charge.
YOU CAN ALSO BLOCK UNWANTED CALLS MANUALLY
Turn on your phone and go into the "Main Menu" section.
Go into the "Settings" or "Tools and Settings" section. Look for and press the "Call Settings" or "Security" section.
Go into the "Call Restrictions" or "Block Numbers" section. Look for the setting to enter restricted numbers, block calls from certain numbers in your contact list, or block all numbers except for those in your contact list. Enter or select the phone number you want to block. Save the settings on your phone.
Finally, another option is to use a secondary incoming call number, such as the one provided by Google Voice. Intermediary services such as this one give you a new number and allow you to directly control the circumstances under which each contact's calls are forwarded to your phone. For example, you can set up Google Voice so that only your known contacts call your cell phone, and only at particular hours; other calls may go to your home phone, or straight to voicemail.

Call your service provider and ask if there is a way to block specific numbers.Your service provider might have a special service to block numbers. Maybe try this...text the person saying "Your messages have been blocked by (state your own number). Message 303." The person will think you blocked their text messages. If they text again, reply with the same message.
You service provider is that one that can help you out with this.
