Thanks for the info. However, that did not stop the spam multimedia text messages that I am receiving. There is no phone number associated with the message so the features to block a number do not work. I'll check into a third party option.
I am getting robo spam text and there is no number associated with them and there is no option to block the number and I cannot forward the text and note that it's SPAM. What do you do? How do I stop this? This is ridiculous!! It will not stop.
Did you find a 3rd party option? I have not... I have the same problem, plus even the spam that does come from an actual number, comes from a different number every time, so blocking the number does no good. I used to be able to block "phrases" on my S8 (which worked great), but with the v9 Pie update, that has been removed... I have read that Verizon allows you to block texts from email addresses from your account online, which would help with that part of the spam issue.
The easy answer is to bring back phrase blocking, but I don't know if that was an AT&T or Samsung issue...
