Is it possible to block someone from texting you?

Here ya go:

The next time you get a spam message or you just want to block a new  enemy or annoying family member from texting you, text the words

block [insert number here]

to

9999

.  Within seconds, you'll get a SprintFreeMsg response from the 9999  number confirming that all text messages from the indicated number will  be blocked. You can also text

spam [insert number here]

to

9999

to have Sprint "investigate" the number.

As far as Spam text send them to 7726, It goes to a national database that the major carriers are strting to use to try help cut down on spam text accross all carriers. It also blocks that number from sending you anymore spam text.

7726 - Report Spam Text Messages

Sprint is conducting a trial with a new system that gives employees and customers with CDMA devices the ability to report SPAM text messages received. Forward any text messages perceived to be SPAM to shortcode 7726 (SPAM) to report it as SPAM.
