Hello Currently I have problems on 2 lines.. On my primary line I'm getting harassing text messages from a user using textfree. They keep on texiing me vulgar language to me.. Is there a way to block that number. Even I don't reply it keeps on going . I don't want a new number on that line just block that number.
And on an other line
I keep on getting calls people wanting to subscribe to cable. I found out that number is the same as the one on TV for a cable company the only difference is area code mine is 562 and the one on TV is 1 800 .. I would like a new number but hope there is no fee

there is this service also - free
Allows you to block texts and email to texts number / addresses - free
Unless they've changed something recently, I don't believe you can block SMS from mobile numbers using the messaging preferences. You can enter domains that you would like to block receiving E-mail to SMS from.
If your phone doesn't have the built-in functionality, AFAIK the only at&t provided way to block SMS from specific phone numbers is via their "Smart Limits for Wireless" - $5/month.
