    it's easy, Go to sprint.com and sign on to your account, click on my sprint then click on my device and media, scroll down click on the messaging icon then under that you will see the block text in yellow. note make sure your browser setting set to accept cookies always and nothing blocked, or you will not be able to edit your block list and you will get directed to the main page. The bad thing about sprint text blocking is who ever try to send you text and is in your block list will think you are getting the text and they will not be notified that they been blocked.

     

    OK now if your son has his own phone but under your account and you want to prevent him from sending text, you can go to my sprint, my account, on the right you will see change my plan/ add remove services, then click on the phone number you want to edit.....

    I am listing Sprints instructions for this but the problem with them is that they only involve a blocked list of numbers which your son could easily change. The best way to do it if your son has his own number but it is on your plan would be to change the plan for that particular phone. It would be easiest to just call Sprint and tell them what you want to do. Just tell them you do not want texting on that particular phone.
