cannot block Class 0 Flash SMS messages on iPhone

I've Been Here Awhile

There is a kind of SMS message called Class 0 or Flash SMS that pops up immediately, cannot be blocked, and ignores Do Not Disturb settings.  This is an incredibly intrusive message and is now being used by spammers.

 

I have an iPhone 6S with iOS 9.2.1

 

How can I disable this functionality?  Will Rogers block all Class 0 messages from its network?

 

I do not want my nights and days to be interrupted with SMS messages I cannot block.

Hi @justletmepost

 

Thank you for your patience, depending on the make, model and the software version of your device, there maybe a dedicated SMS blocking app you can use to block these types of spam messages.  You can report the text messages you keep getting from the 9-digit numbers to the Spam Reporting Centre here.

 

Hope this helps,

Also getting bombarded by these 9-digit SMS spammers. This is getting pretty frustrating given its at least one or two per day.

Hello @ehcustomer

Nothing to be worried about. They are spam messages just like those spam calls on home phones about duck cleaning and such.
