How to Block a Phone Number From Text Messages

By Nicholas Smith

No matter what phone provider you have, you can block all text messages from being sent and received on your phone. Blocking text messages is useful for those mobile phone users who wish to save money on their monthly bills. Mobile phone providers charge users when they send and receive messages. You can easily re-enable the text messaging feature in the future if you wish to send and receive these messages again. You cannot block text messages that come from a single phone number.
