Hey, how can I block nuisance calls and text messages. What's happening is whatever number I receive the unwanted text from I have it blocked and the next thing I see is a diffrent number again texting or calling. So far I have blocked so many and they keep on coming. Getting frustrated!!

Hi

You can register on the TPS Service http://www.tpsonline.org.uk/tps/mobile/index.html and keep adding those numbers to your blocked lists.

Extreme option is to change your mobile number but that won't 100% guarantee it will go away and
their is an admin fee to change your number.

Often the calls / texts are from spoofed numbers so the originating number is not always the real number.
As many of these calls originate from outside of the UK the TPS is useless as they have no control over numbers outside of the UK.
Try putting the number into Google as there are many websites that list nuisance caller and you may be able to find out who the culprit is. Even so if they are based outside of the UK frankly there is little you can do apart from never give your mobile number to ANY website where you may be buying something, asking for information or anything else. Once you do give your number you are guaranteed to end up on some spammers mailing / calling lush.
