Has anyone figured out how to block these annoying, constant spam group texts? I was able to block one, but cannot remember how I did it. SMH

3 dot menu = settings = block numbers and spam = conversations = select the conversation = all numbers in the group text will be blocked. You will be free from these type of spams.

As they were saying, you'll have to individually select those numbers in that "mms" chat and block them one by one to stop the group completely.

I discovered one issue with it is if this is your friends, and they're group messaging and being annoying lol you might not want to block them. But you can certainly go into the "all" section of your messages tap and hold on the group you don't want, hit the notifications icon to mute their conversation.

Fortunately, the GMAIL email app which I've been using since 2010 when I activated my first Android phone, has a SPAM inbox which keeps a lot of garbage group emails out of my primary inbox, which are completely unrelated to my accounts and personal messages. I do not dare to open any of these, as they could contain harmful malicious material.
There are some grouped email ads which do come into my inbox though on a daily basis, some of which are ads from my accounts including my cellular provider.
