Blocking Spam SMS on Android and iOS
No matter how rich Smartphone features it has, its main function is to keep in touch with people in your life. Calling someone is a way to catch up, but it’s hard to argue against SMS text and email messages, which, for many, it is faster and more convenient.
However, there are times when you may receive a message from a contact who prefers not to see, or receive a message from someone with a questionable random number. Of course, you can delete the message and move on, but a more permanent solution is to block these people completely, preventing their texts come to you until decided otherwise. Fortunately for both iOS and Android allow you to easily, and we have taken to break the ways to do so.
iOS Blocking text messages
Text blocks known contacts and phone numbers
Blocking iOS texts requires a little more simply block the phone number or the contact in question, although it will no longer receive notifications of these people when you are trying to achieve. More precisely for messages, a message on the contact you want to block and press Details in the upper right corner. Again, in the upper right corner, you’ll want to use the “i” to open the information page and tap Block caller at the bottom of the page icon.
The thumb text blocks
Another way is to go to Settings> Messages> Blocked and click Add to add a new blocked contact. For either method, you not only block messages, but also phone calls and FaceTime calls. This saves you from having to go to applications and phone settings to block FaceTime and the same person.
Text block numbers listed as “unknown” or “private”
Unfortunately, you can not block unknown and private numbers direct the same way you can meet contacts. You can, however, filter and separate them from the rest of the people you know. Go to Settings> Messages and turn on the filter option from unknown senders. This will create a new tab in your application called “messages from unknown senders,” but will not receive notifications for them. It may not be ideal, but it is a good compromise.
Report spam iMessages
Another thing you can do is to report spam and unwanted iMessages. When you get an iMessage, someone who does not know, there will be a link “Report junk.” Click the link to transmit information of the sender and the message to Apple. The company has to deal with contact and eventually render the person incapable or new bot message.
You can also send an email Apple “email@example.com”. Note that you need a screenshot of the message and e-mail address or phone number that sent the iMessage and the date and time of receipt.
Apple does not address SMS and MMS messages, but you can always report to the user. AT & T, for example, suggests sending junk to 7726 (SPAM) e-mail. Then, the support will be in the message.
