Default Unwanted txt msgs

Is there any way to block txt messages that are coming from blank or unknown users? Getting very annoying txt messages.

Not that I'm aware of. You could speak to your carrier about it and see what they recommend.

I was looking to see if you could create a filter, but doesn't seem to be possible.

I have Sprint and can block any sender from texting me. Not sure about Alltel.... would probably have to call them.

Alltel doesnt seem to be able to block senders and the filter option doesnt work either.

go to:-
options
security options
firewall
enable status
check mark SMS
enable except messages from Contacts & Specific Address (from which yo want to recieve messages)

Its Done

I see this option on my Bold with OS 4.6 & 5, Not sure with Curve on any OS.

or go to www.aintair.com they have an application for Spam sms. Download trial & if u Like it buy it

I'd really like to block the spam SMS messages, but there doesn't seem to be an "except messages from Contacts" option on my BB 8800. Am I missing something?
