Anyone else having problems with the blocking of unwanted calls/texts?

I dont know if its my Apple Iphone 4 or Sprint but I keep trying to block certain numbers but they keep getting through no matter what I do. Any suggestions? I would love an app that says the number is no longer in service??

Hi,

I haven't had any problems. I went online earlier and blocked a number and a text. You must be the primary account holder to make the change. Takes 15-30 minutes for changes to register.

Log into your account > click on my preferences tab > bottom left of page under limits and permissions  you have block text or block voice. If you have more than one device you will need to select which device. You can block 50 numbers or 50 text messages.

I am the account holder and Ive done all that. The numbers still get through. I may just have to change my number again although I really dont want to

Don't do anything drastic. Maybe one of the Sprint reps close to Sprint.com can step in here and fix your problem.

Are you trying to block phone numbers using your iPhone on the Sprint Mobile website?

Or are you trying to block the numbers using a desktop / laptop computer and the full www.sprint.com website?

Thanks,

I hear you. Receiving communication from an unwanted party is never welcome. Good news is, you can block the number that is calling you. Learn more on how to on your preferred time here, http://bit.ly/1ihUVeM. Let me know if you have any other questions.

Same problem.  I am trying to allow only four numbers to send texts to my daughter's phone, but all numbers are still coming through.
