Re: getting unwanted text messages and call

The mobile network will not do the blocking for you, but if you have a handset that offers the functionality – in effect, hiding the incoming messages and calls (identified as originating from numbers on your black-list) from you, once ‘you’ got them, beneath your notice – then you can use that, without intervention by your carrier.


Other than that, please see:


Departed from CrowdSupport as of 12 June 2013, when the fun factor for me had finally completely evaporated with all the recent site layout and functionality changes, and the apparent efforts to turn a community goodwill-powered vehicle into something closer to a customer service channel.
