Your explanation is the best yet! Everyone else wants you to download special apps or they say in their headline that they will show you how to block texts but all they do is show you how to block calls (which most can figure out by themselves). You are the only one that I have found that does exactly what you say you will do. Plus you do it very well. Thank you so much. I mean what is the point of blocking a person from phoning you and bothering you when they can just text you and bother that way. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Hello my phone doesnt have settings for the messages (samsung in australia) but when I went to phone messages from number I want to block it had option to tick number as a spam number. I ticked it so imagine is blocked now. Strange no settings option which I do have for call numbers and put same number on reject list. thanks for videos. the blocking option on samsung 3 was confusing as when i used it it seemed to be blocking all the numbers that I wanted to allow! manythanks!
ITJungles (4 years ago)
Once you add it as spam, it should go to the reject list. Make sure you set it to reject all. You may have an updated version of Android and the menu may be at a different place.
Ionut Iulian (4 years ago)
Ty but what kind of error the person who send you the message will get?
ITJungles (4 years ago)
probably that you are not available right now please leave a message or something in that nature.

There is a difference from a rejected call and it being blocked. I want the number block where they cannot leave me a voicemail. Can you help with that?

Yes but the phone still receives the text in the spam folder.How can I block my phone from receiving the text in my spam?
ITJungles (4 years ago)
Sorry couldn't help you on this issue. I will investigate and if I found out something I will let you know.
luna doran (4 years ago)
Thanks for your reply. .haha..if only I had the willpower to do that!
ITJungles (4 years ago)
currently there is not option to block it from Spam folder. Maybe you can just delete all messages in the Spam folder without reading it.

I don't have the spam option in my galaxy s3 is there any other way to do this?
ITJungles (4 years ago)
You should have that option then, unless your network carrier disable this feature. Try to contact your network provider for further assistant.
The Ap3xHitman (4 years ago)
yes I am

I don't have the option to block numbers, but I am running the latest version available. Android 4.1.2. on an S3.
ITJungles (5 years ago)
You need to block unknown number too.
miken51bod (5 years ago)
I get spam texts on my phone from unknown senders, a name appears but no phone number and when i try to block the texts it asks me to add a phone number and i cant block the contact. any advice or ideas?
Alexandra (5 years ago)
Thank you so much for this. I didn't realise I was able to block text messages, I thought you could only block incoming calls. I've tried and tested this and can confirm that it works and the other person doesn't know you have blocked them, they even still get delivery reports, but the message doesn't go into your inbox.
Gwendolyn Lee (5 years ago)
Update your phone. I have the Galaxy S3. I went into the menu to update my phone and once it was updated the Spam feature showed up. I didn't have the spam feature when I first got the phone. I had to call my carrier who told me I need to update my phone every other month at least. I hope this helps.
ITJungles (5 years ago)
I wouldn't think so.
ballerina722 (5 years ago)
So when I block a number and the other person keeps sending messages, will they receive some sort of message saying that their message did not go through?
ITJungles (5 years ago)
If you change your SIM card over to a different phone, then the block won't work this is because the blocking is done on the phone and not on the carrier. You will have to setup the block again on a different phone.
Walid Qotit (5 years ago)
the number still blocked if i change the mobile phone ? or not

That's strange, do you have the latest version of Android, just wonder if you are running an older version, maybe it is somewhere else.

The S2 run on an older operating system. Maybe they don't have that option. Try to look around the settings menu.
