I do not think you are able to do it over the My Rogers account online BUT i know if you have the My Rogers app on your phone, you are able to add it from there. Open up the My Rogers app, Go into Services teb on the top right side & Once in there it will show you the Extreme Text Messaging option. Click on that & you are able to add any number to block. It also gives you other features as well.

Hello Gord_65

The app must be downloaded on a smartphone. You must be running the app on 3G service. That is how it works.

You can try what IHR said as well :

"nstructions

Turn on your Rogers cell phone.
Enter the phone number you wish to block into the body of a text message.
Send the text message to "7726" or "SPAM." Text messages from that phone number will now be blocked on your mobile phone.
Edit your block list by texting the word "XTREME" to "4716".
Follow the link you receive in response to your text message to view and edit your block list.

Hello hanabyse

No they will not. They have no clue you have them blocked unless you let them know. So the answer is No.

What about phone calls? Works for both?

Re: How to Block Phone Numbers with Extreme Messaging on myrogers?

I am not sure if extreeme text messaging will block phone calls at all.

 

One option for cellular to block calls.. even if you never use it for the other features.. is the Rogers One Number.
Free, to add onto any postpaid cellular account.
In the web interface for it, you can set up # blocks for calls, etc.
