How can I block Hotmail texts coming to my phone? I've gone into settings under the texting app that I use, and came with phone and there is no spam block option. I've tried to block each Hotmail text but I am only able to delete them. They seem to have a link in them that's probably attached to **bleep**.

I understand how frustrating spam messages are. You can block and delete unwanted messages. When you get a sketchy text, select Block number at the top of the conversation. To view blocked numbers and messages, or to block a number, go to the Conversations tab, tap More options (the three vertical dots), and then tap Settings. Tap Block numbers and messages. Your service provider should also have additional ways of blocking numbers. You can also use the following link for information on how to report these unwanted texts. https://www.consumer.ftc.gov/articles/how-recognize-and-report-spam-text-messages

Google messages allows you to block individual emails from texting you and has a built-in spam blocking feature that helps.
