    Is it possible to block text messages (SMS \ MMS) from certain numbers? Or some sort of Text Message blacklist?

    Thanks

    Handcent has this feature. I don't know how well it works because I've never had to blacklist anyone but it is in the menu.

    You can block all calls from a number --that is voice and data, but not sure you can just block texts. Settings/Call Settings/ All Calls/ auto reject/ enable and manage reject list.

    You can also do this via AT&T's "Smart Limits for Wireless Parental Controls" feature but that costs $5/mo.

    You can also do this with Google Voice, but it only applies if you're doing texting using your new Google Voice number. If they're directly texting your cell phone # then that won't work.
