    I have the above phone.

    I can't find a way in the messaging app to block a sender/phone number from sending me text messages.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Block Calls From a Number:

    Tap “Apps” on the home screen
    Go to “Settings”
    Tap “Call” > “Reject calls from”
    Tap “+” and perform one of the steps below:
    Select a contact and tap “Done”
    Select a call log entry and tap “Done”
    Write the phone number you want to block and tap “Save”

    My path was slightly different, but I got there.

    Will it bloc text messages? The option seemed to indicate it was about phone calls.

    That will be dependent on the text messages app you are using. I use textra, which has the option to block any texts I want, easily

    I don't think it worked.

    I was motivated to make this thread after I got included in a juvenile group text chat. I think, because one of the phone numbers was very similar to mine.

    I got 1 more message after I entered the phone numbers as per your earlier instructions.

    I have very little space on my phone because the manufacturer filled half the space with default apps I can not uninstall.

    The only apps I chose on my own were Pandora and Instgram, both of which I regularly use.

    Getting included on that group text chat was enough to motivate to part with some of my precious space and install Textra.

    I see what you mean, it is a lot easier to block someone. Just press down on their name, hit the 3 dots menu, and pick block.

    Thank you.
