    Default How Do I block a number?

    Good afternoon,

    Just got a Moto X (misplaced my Nexus 4) and love it.
    Problem is I have just received two rude/xrated texts from someone I don't know.
    Guess My number was someone else's number before.

    How do I prevent this person from texting me at my expense?
    Is there a "block" setting somewhere I have overlooked?

    Regards,

    SonDan.

    I can't remember if there is a procedure on the phone, but you can try asking your carrier to block that number.

    Thank you both for the speedy replies. I selected a black list app after reading the reviews of the top rated ones. Hope it does the trick.

    I believe Verizon allows you to block numbers from your account on their site.

    Try out Current Caller ID. It should do the trick.

    On my Verizon galaxy s3, when a call comes in you don't want hear from, either long press the number in the caller list or press it once then on the next screen, press the menu softkey & you'll see "add to reject list" or something like that. It came with the phone.
