call manager text blocking

This may be a silly question, but I'm a bit new to these devices.

If I add a blocked phone number to call manager does it block both text messages and phone calls or only phone calls.

It's unwanted text messages from someone that I need to block.

Not sure why nobody else has replied yet, but unfortunately no.

The Call Manager feature will only block incoming calls, and seperately it can block OUTGOING SMS & MMS messages.

However, the Extreme Text Messaging option does have a feature to block incoming SMS messages.

Text message the phone number you wish to block messages coming to you from. i.e 6478882240. Text that phone number to SPAM or 7726. This will ensure that you don't get incoming messages from that number.

OR better yet download a app from the App Store which blocks the texts messages you want & the numbers you do not want to call you. This is a easier way so if you want to take the number off you can.

How do you unblock the number from 7726

Re: call manager text blocking

Repeating the procedure that enabled the blocking should disable it as well. Meaning send an SMS to 7726 with the 10-digit number in the body and it should unblock.

Re: call manager text blocking

There is no way around it unless you disable iMessager from the settings. I talked & spoke to many Apple reps which have told me this.

Re: call manager text blocking

Hi, you stated "Repeating the procedure that enabled the blocking should disable it as well. Meaning send an SMS to 7726 with the 10-digit number in the body and it should unblock.'.. I did repeat the procedure to unblock the number but it didn't work.

Please advise on how to unblock a number which was initially blocked by sending the number to SPAM.

 

Thanks!
