Receiving unwanted text messages on a Boost Mobile phone can be a real problem because the company charges for text messages whether you read them or not. If you are getting text messages from a specific number, you can block the messages by sending a special text message to the number "9999."


Step 1

Open the text messaging editor on your phone. It's usually on the main menu of the phone under "Text Messages" or "SMS."
