You can reporting the number as spam.


@Ratbag: In order to help you, we need more info. I assume you want to stop a user to send you./text/msges isn't? From my knowledge-Telus can't legit do that, but you can install a (Ph/Text blocker App). Here's some for Android users. 1) SMS Blocker. 2) Mr.Number +more in Goggle store. If you've an iPhone wait for a reply about.


Keep in mind that -Telecom wireless it has to comply, with internal policy rules. Having said that, don't expect -Telus will solve all the issues. Blocking Phone#s +Texts/brings some side effects, so do it at your own risk. <ReadMe-soon> "v9"

With Android there should be settings to create a blacklist of texts and phone numbers you don't want to see.

They basically go to your spam/ignore folder and you set the ring-tone for them  to silent. You still receive them, but you ignore them.
