    The one thing I know is, options -> security -> firewall

    But I'm guessing you'll disable all traffic on one or all SMS, MMS, PIN or BlackBery Internet Service.

    Sad to see your in a possition like that, I once was.. wasn't fun at all. I feel for ya.
    Maybe your carrier can help, they needed me to take legal actions against the person in order to block them, but maybe its easier in the US.

    Well I am convinced that the verizon csr are idiots because I have found the answer to my own question. Anyone with a verizon account can block certain txt messages by going to www.vtext.com logging into their account and set up blocks based on numbers e-mails or origin. I hope this helps people out it sure did help me get rid of spam on my phone.

    Actually they do! You just have to call them up and request it.

    TMO has it through their website. Call c/s for directions. I kept getting text spam and was able to block it.

    ok thanks for the responses! but if i request it, will it block all incoming texts? i just want it to block a number or 2. when i researched it on the tmo website it said that i wouldnt be able to receive any messages if i added the block text feature.
