    "Anti Sms Spam" is very good and efficient for Messages blocking. You can block based on keywords or numbers which you can define in settings. Option to add whitelist nos is available only in paid version.

    Call and SMS blocking is a feature of the Norton Mob Security.

    Yeah, they are part of most of mobile security apps including Kaspersky. But who wants to pay $30/year to use them when you have free apps which can do the same task....

    Decided to use Mr.Number for call blocking and Go SMS Pro for sms blocking. Thx for the suggestions.

    I took Aravindan's suggestion and installed "Anti Sms Spam". I successfully blocked messages having "expires" or "download" in them. However it did not block a message that contains those words and a button to download something. I do not do such things so I do not know what would be downloaded. The text supposedly came from someone I know, but they said that they did not send it.

    What defense do I have?

    Sophos Is also free and has an sms and call block feature. If you paid $30 for one, maybe you should check one of the listed apps and save yourself some money.
