Re: blocking texts and calls from certain numbers???

Unfortunately there is no way to block unwanted spam texts on the network.  Spam text like the one you are receiving, would be sent out by a computer to random numbers.

 

The best thing is to ignore and delete the text, do not reply or they will know they have a genuine mobile number and will will then receive further spam texts.

you could always sign up to TPS

It won't stop the texts but should reduce the calls

You can download a trial of iBlocker Lite which will allow you to block 3 numbers for free.

 

You can also look at the Firewall settings on your BB as you can block txts etc there :smileyhappy:

Try Advanced Call Manager - it's a free download from Blackberry Apps World. Easy to set up and does what it says on the tin.
