    Blocking spam email/text messages?

    Advertisement



    Hi,

    I was wondering if there are any programs out there for the BB that can block spam email or text messages. Lately I have been getting text messages from what seems like someones phone. But it only has a 4 or 5 digit number. Is there anyway to prevent this? They come in at the most annoying times. (2-3am usually).

    Antair works very well. I've been using it for a while now. It dumps suspicious emails into a folder that you can check once in a while to see if any real messages are in there.

    A quick question regarding the Antair. Will that only filter spam out for email? I suppose what I am really looking for is if there is something I can do to prevent that number from texting me. Because the message I get comes as a text message, but looks like an email when I open it.

    You might be able to just contact your service provider and have that number blocked.

    under mms options there is a box to check/uncheck for rejecting anonymous messages and advertisements. i have both those checked and have never received any txt that i wasn't meant to ... maybe try that too?

    Ok thanks once again. I went under options for MMS and 'reject anonymous message' was already checked. Oh and I also called my service provider, they told me the number can't be blocked because I only have 4 digits on it. They suggested I reply to it and asked to be removed from the list. Although I am reluctant to try that. So...looks like I'm out of luck at least for now. Thanks again for everyone's help though.

    +1 you beat me to it....also if you purchased anything from sites that required your email, if you just unsubscribe from their newsletter, that also helps as well
