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 incoming text messages show caller number and not ID why?


hello there,

Make sure you only have single entry for that person on your phonebook. Try to delete her or his name from your contacts to be able to know her duplicate.

Hope this helps.

When i receive text messages just the number comes up how do i change it to name showing


You need to copy your #s to your phone from your sim card. If your #s are only in your sim card and your preferred storage for your text messages is set to "phone" it's receiving and saving according to that setting. If your preferred storage is set to "phone" it will only tag it with names that are actually saved in your "phone" not sim. *NOTE: You only need to copy to phone the people you want text name tags for. Your incoming calls will not be affected by this.

Hope this info was helpful to you. Good Luck!

When i receive messages on my i9 the number appears not name


I have the phone and have had the same problem. I found I have to add the "1" before the area code to all the saved contacts or at least the ones you use most and that should fix it... when the text message is received it has the "1" normally we don't save the number that way...

First try to clear your un needed texts, then check your multimedia messages.

Need complete recent call log and more days for text message storage


The call listing only shows one caller by design, to help with clutter on the list. It's a little funky, but if you think about scrolling through pages of the same caller just to find that number to the pizza place again, it makes sense.

If you open Messaging, you can access the settings in the menu there to increase (or set to never delete) text message life.

Please let me know if you get stuck!
