How to Block Text Messages on My Rogers Cell Phone

By Mary Jo Megginson

In 2010, Rogers Wireless introduced new free "Extreme Text Messaging" features. These include auto-reply, text forwarding and the ability to block text messages from unwanted sources. Blocking text messages is not an option with many cell phone providers, but Rogers subscribers can do it with a few simple steps.

Step 1

Turn on your Rogers cell phone.

Step 2

Enter the phone number you wish to block into the body of a text message.

Step 3

Send the text message to "7726" or "SPAM." Text messages from that phone number will now be blocked on your mobile phone.

Step 4

Edit your block list by texting the word "XTREME" to "4716".

Step 5

Follow the link you receive in response to your text message to view and edit your block list. See Resources for more information.

Tips & Warnings

  • The people whose text messages you block will not know they have been blocked.
  • This service is free for Rogers subscribers.
