How do you block certain text messages from your phone?
« on: September 23, 2010, 08:33:03 pm »

Hi guys,

Actually, this question became an off-topic from a previous post at single mom's page. For my peace of mind and wellbeing, I would like to block messages from some numbers. I couldn't change my number now, since I have a lot of clients that know about this number.

I have asked Smart & Globe for text blocking feature, wala daw sila. Only Sun offers this feature, for a fee of P50/monthly per number.

Problem is, my primary phone is with Smart.  My internet is with Globe, and my secondary phone is with Sun.  I need to block people from my Smart.

I am posting this for other mommies to learn as well.

Thanks.

If Globe and Smart say they don't have that feature, you'll have to check if your mobile phone itself has it.

Yung account kasi namin before (when I was still working for a call center) was a cellphone company and we get that question often. Wala rin kami ganyang feature but some phone models are able to block certain numbers although bihira ang ganun phone.

You can try screening messages also. May Nokia ako dati nagagawa niya yun. It doesn't block the messages from coming in but it puts them in a folder and you're not notified na may message pala if coming from that number.

oo nga daw. riddermark said nokia has a software application via ovi mail. my spare phone naman is not among the phones na pwede upload-an nung software na yun. haaay!

i have asked what other phone models has it, because sony ericsson (my phones) don't have one.  >:(

I think you can check with NTC, possible ata with them.  I'm not so sure coz I can't remember what happened when I had the same problem like yours.... it was a few years back na kasi... .

sis, this is what i do when i don't want to be bothered by nuisance text messages.  (sometimes, they're from hubby whenever we have an argument... hehe...)
 
whenever my cellphone would beep, and i'd see who's texting, i wouldn't bother opening the message.  i would just erase it immediately.  that way, i'm not being bothered by whatever that person is texting me.  and i don't have to spend anything for it.

I like sis mariann's suggestion. You can go right ahead and delete it without reading it. Wag ka patutukso na basahin at replyan ang messages. Maybe the person would get tired of texting if he/she doesnt get any reply.

if you don't reply, that would irk them some more.  so they're at the losing end and not you.  you have the peace of mind you want. 

yes, dont' get yourself tempted to open the message.  i you don't want to ruin your day, delete the message immediately.  master the process of deleting without looking at your mobile phone.

haha. yeah, true, that's a cheap way to do that. i thought about that too.

but, it's the equilibrium that stresses me out. ok na sana yung araw mo, pero just the fact that she/he can text you in the middle of the night or morning, nakakawala ng peace of mind.

even if i don't read it, may excerpts na that could be gleaned from the message, and i know it's always something not nice, or a smart-aleck all knowing remark, that would really get my goat.   

i have done direct erasing lately, but i still don't want to be bothered by the thought that she/he indeed texted. ignorance is bliss. hehe.

sabi nila sis, either we have a samsung phone (i just don't know which model) or we get a higher end nokia phone (para we could download a message filtering software application via the nokia website). i'm thinking which would be cheaper. hehe. might need to change all phones pag ganun! hehe.

my old school fone is samsung sgh-j700.
eto yung steps: sana ma follow nyo, hehe...

blocking the message:
menu-->settings-->application settings-->message-->block number.
*you can block 10 set of numbers

blocking the call:
menu-->settings-->application settings-->call-->all calls-->auto reject-->activation ON then choose reject list.
*then add the number of that id**t who's insensitive enough not to feel that his/her call is the last call in the world that you want to receive. ever.  ;)

mga sis, not so sure on other samsung phones ha...
