Need help blocking outgoing texts


Need help blocking outgoing texts


I need to prevent my kid from unblocking a text restriction I have when he uses my phone. I have blocked texts to a certain number via My Sprint, but all he has to do is text "unblock xxx-xxxx" to 9999 when he is using my phone to undo this!

I have blocked permissions on My Sprint, which should prevent him from being able to do this, instead needing to be able to log into my account to unblock, which he does not have access too. However, this doesn't work for some reason.

Isn't there a way that I can block incoming/outgoing texts to a certain number in such a way that you can't simply unblock from the phone itself?

I'm using an Iphone 4S, by the way.



Thank you for reaching out to us here. I am sorry to hear about this situation. The other option I know of is if you were to block all text messages on that line. This can be done on as well. Please let us know if you have any other questions
