Default Blocking texts?

Please Login to Remove!

My friends think its funny to send me hundreds of text messages in a short ammount of time. Is there a way I can block these? Also, is there a hot key to resned messages?

You can block ALL sms messages but not individual numbers.

Your friend is using a text message bomb script. I didnt think there were any remaining websites that you could do that with. Find out how hes doing it.

You check it online before the bill closing date. Anyday will show through the previous days activity. Sometimes it is more up-to-date than that.
