I have a question for Bees with Android phones. Does anyone use an app to block texts from certain people? I can easily ignore the texts, but they still come up on my phone, and I just want to deny them alltogether or have them go into a place where I can look at them in a month or so.
I know this might be a weird request, but if anyone can recommend an app that would be great. Thank you in advance!

@megz06: I don’t believe you need an app. I think you can mark a number as spam (under texting settings). Your phone will receive the text without you knowing. You have to look for it if you want to see if you got a text from that number. I did it for my brother, then sent him a text. There was no alert.

@beemyname: I went into text settings, and I don’t have an option to mark a number as spam. I then went into the person I want to block the messages from and no option to mark their texts as spam in there either.

@megz06: What kind of phone do you have? I have the Galaxy S4, and I can just click on the conversation from a person I want to block, hit my settings button, and there is an option called “add to spam numbers”.

Check out Mr. Number. I have not used it for blocking texts, but I believe it will work with both texts and calls. The app will show you if a blocked person has attempted to call. I use it to block telemarketing calls and it works really well.

I don’t use blocking app but I do use my phone companies blocking. I have to log into my account and put the number in and it’s blocked. What phone company do you have?

@PermaStudent: I wish I had that. I have a Motorola Droid Razor HD.
@bleusteel: Sweet. I will check it out. Thanks!
@tksjewelry: I have Verizon. I went in a few years ago wanting to block my ex from contacting me via text (because I can block numbers on my phone easily) and they claimed they couldn’t do that. They said that they can block it one time for 30 or 60 days or something like that and then I’d have to pay a fee, so I just changed my number instead. Granted, its been a few years, and perhaps things have changed. I figured an app would be easier.
