    Default Blocking calls/text

    Does anyone know how to block a contact from calls and text on the s5?

    Just select the contact, hit the menu button, and send it to the block/reject list. Not sure if that works for SMS though.

    Then yeah, either your carrier offers the service to block specific numbers from sending you SMS (most carriers will only let you block commercial SMS though) or you can download a 3rd party app like SMS Blocker from the Play Store.
