Is it possible to block sms/text messages from a number(s)?

I've tried contacting support (total joke) and searched the Net to no avail. Can find nothing in the N817 phone to block never ending spam wanting me to wish a Happy Birthday to this and that in a fake FB login page; they come in every single day.

Even tried making them into contacts and seeing if there was an option once made into a contact, but no.

Seriously sick & tired of these - any possible way to block them?


Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

It may be possible in a third party app. I use Messenger for my txt messages and there is a feature to block numbers.

I believe there is a similar feature in the 'Textra' app.

Best off luck
