Possible to block people from texting you?

Greetings,

 

I'm a Samsung Solstice user, (the old Solstice). My question is: I'm on a budget so I'm on the 1,000 text plan. When I block someone from calling me, does that also block them from texting me as well? Is it possible to block someone from texting you?

From a fellow Solstice user:

Nope. What I do is have all those I want to respond to in my phone book. That way, when I get a text message, I can see who it's from so I know if I want to answer it or not. Since I have a teenage daughter, I opted for the unlimited text plan which has saved me TONS of $$$$.

However, back to your issue. Use the phone book idea so you don't open unwanted text message and wind up over your plan. You can delete them at the end of the day without getting charged for them since you won't open them. If you open them, that's when you get charged.
