Hello,

 

I recommend reaching out to your current service provider regarding this. Text messages are a carrier-specific feature and your carrier has the ability to block unwanted calls, text messages, or numbers.

I block calls but they are able to keep calling. What good is the block and why isn't it working??

Take it from a person who's constantly reporting non Samsung issues like scams, naughty pictures, flooding, 2 reports I sent in that were non Samsung related resulted in me getting a warning and possibly get kicked off the site. Yes, my language was a little bad (no swearing) but they want us to play nice.

They can't do anything against scammers. It's left up to you to block and delete most of the time so I rarely hit the "Report" button. I just move on.

Blocking is not the job of the admins. Naughty picture complaints are basically ignored.
