Text Messages and spam calls

I must get twenty a day and block them all. Most of the calls say spam or silenced call. I just got a text message from a Florida number. It said “ It’s been a long time since you messaged me, do you miss me” and attached was a photo of some girl. My iPhone will block the spam calls but not text messages. I’ll have to go through my settings and see if I can change that and block them as well.

Not sure how this got posted twice. Maybe a hamster can delete the second one.

@jcboy,
I've got a Nokia, it doesn't do pictures. I don't get many spam texts.

@izzythepush,
Oh it's every day for me, it must block the spam calls from leaving a voice mail because I never get a voice mail from a spam call, unless they just don't leave me one.

I'm going to have to check my settings, there must be a way of blocking them as well.

I get spam texts increasingly, I think because I ignore calls from numbers not recognized as friends or business concerns.

@edgarblythe,
Yep increasing more every day. Most of the spam text are from realtors saying they want to buy the house!

Realtor calls have all become texts for me also.

@jcboy,
I find spam calls do not leave messages or at least the majority do not...I get a half dozen or more a day on my land line. I simply do not answer a number I don't know or seems suspect. Very rare there is a message ...I call for messages and it is just dead air.

I rarely get spam texts ...a rare one here or there. I also do not get many spam calls on my cell...except for that Asian lady who calls frequently I keep telling her I do not speak any Asian dialect but she keeps calling me back.

I don't block any calls so not sure why I get so few on my cell..not complaining
