    Hey there, straight to the point. I have blocked a number Huawei 2019 Prime Y9 but I keep getting the text anyway and the person sending it gets the "delivered" notification. Is there anyway or any app that could make the above not happen?

    Did you block the number in the texting app?

    Welcome to Android Central! Who's your carrier? Check with them to see if they have a way to block numbers on the carrier level.

    "Blocked" is probably not the correct word the industry should be using. "Rejected" is more accurate. When an SMS message is sent to your phone, the SMS app checks your blocked/rejected list to see what to do with it. If the sender is on the rejected list, the app silently discards the message; otherwise, the app adds the message to the SMS database and triggers the notification for the new message. Either way, technically the message was delivered to your phone; this is probably the definition of "delivered" that your carrier uses to send back the delivery receipt.

    Check with your carrier to see if there is any options to have some of the blocking done at the carrier level so that the message never arrives at your phone.

    AT&T can block them but it has to be an actual 7+ digit phone number. Alot of the spammers use 6 or less digits to get around that. I personally haven't had any problems after blocking a number of any size on my pixel using the stock Google messaging app ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
