Thanks for posting.

You can block someone from texting you directly from your phone.

Text BLOCK 123-456-7890 (insert the actual phone number you want blocked) to the number 9999 then send. You will receive a reply text message letting you know the number you entered is blocked from texting you and you also will not be able to text them. Hope this helps.

Thanks for the heads up. One of my frustrations with my last carrier was that there was no way to do what you just described.

no number pops up in the texts as to who its from? and if he's using something like imessage or something like that im not to sure it can be blocked. what type of phone is she using? you also will need to change your screen name away from what im guessing is your phone number..everyone and their mom can now see it. through a computer hover your cursor over the mysprint at the top of the page. 3rd column should have the option to change this.
