I would like to know if the person who uses the phone (that the block is placed on) will receive any prior notification (via text, email or whatever) that the account holder has put this block on the phone? Ex: when i added the Family Locator trial, it sent a text out to all 4 lines on my account. This is what I do NOT want to happen. I just want to block a couple of numbers from one of the lines on my account from any access but do not want the person who uses that line to know that it has been blocked....until they try to call or text that is.
This is the message you will get when you have a phone number blocked for incoming and outgoing text:
Sending a message from the phone may return:
You are not allowed to send text messages: Msg 2120.
Senders to the blocked number receive message:
The recipient you are sending to has chosen to not receive messages: Msg 2111.
This is the message you will get when blocking a number for incoming and outgoing calls:
Incoming callers from a blocked phone number hear:
The person you are trying to reach is not accepting calls at this time. Message 18.
Outgoing calls to a blocked phone number receive message:
You are not authorized to make calls to this number by the account holder. Message 19.
Great question. Feel free to block specific phone numbers from calling or texting you at http://sprint.com/mypreferences.
You can also block specific phone numbers directly from your cell phone, from texting you. Start by sending a text message to 9999. In the body of the text message type BLOCK followed by the 10 digit number you would like blocked. To unblock, send ALLOW followed directly by the 10 digit number to 9999.
For a list of all commands, text HELP ALL to 9999.

Great questions! Once you block a number messages cannot be sent either way. Both ways will get a message stating that the number they want to contact has been blocked. It takes 15 minutes to take effect once the block is applied. I have attached links that I think will help! If you have more questions please ask!
