Blocking text message to a Wireless Home Phone

I have an AT&T wireless Home phone -- homebase.  It works well.  One of the challenges that I have is that it occasionally gets texts which show up as a blinking light on the console.  I then need to logon to homebase to read and delete them  We have a spammer sending texts and I want to know if I can block his texts to homebase.

Hello @bamsch!


I hope you are enjoying the weekend as well! I can understand wanting to block text messages going to the hombase. I will gladly check into this for you!


Please send me a private message to @ATTCares with your full name, wireless number of the home base, account number, and the best number to reach you.


I look forward to your reply! Thank you and have a great rest of your evening.

Same issue, mind making the solution public? the UI for the home base isn't great and limits itself. frankly confused by most of the limits on the homebase. One would think the hombase was basically a cellphone without a screen and some beefed up antennas for the dedicated hotspot. With the potential applications of such a device its amazing the builders skimped on the UI... Really kneecapped some cool potentials. If the homebase had the capability to reply to messages from the computers UI I wouldn't be here. I could reply stop to these spam messages I receive several times daily. Im not sure if you guys have the ability to publish a firmware update but yeah I'd love one. Anyway help me out guys!

Did this get resolved?  Mine does the same thing with a lot of "junk" messages and if I don't go in and delete them it blocks our access to internet.  So frustating.

Same issue. All lights are green but won’t allow connections to internet. What’s the solution?
