    Posted here because I guess the harassment is very hurtful, it has only been one message so far.
    And if I go to the police they will laugh at me.

    So is there a way to block a number from texting you?
    thanks.

    Thats 2 texts. Clearly I've now harassed you. Man up, one text isn't harrasment - violent, sexual or physical ITS A TEXT. :shifty: Just don't read them

    Samsung.
    And to those laughing you clearly have no idea what is going on.

    Change your mobile settings -> block that number. I know all mobiles don't have it, but if yours is samsung try it...
    Also, one message - harassment? Nah, maybe they have the wrong number. I'd wait and see what happens next.

    Ok I found a way to block calls!!!
    But I dont think this will work for messaging, and for block messages it just says "block by address" or "block subject" - i take it block by address means his number?

    Hey, I'm sure you can block numbers, ring your service providers customer service if you can't work out how to do it.

    And if that one txt is really bad enough - save it in case you get more and need to report it to the police
