How do I block an SMS sender?

Greetings form South America,

 

I keep receiving between 2 to3 SMS's per day from a user just identified by a number (namely, 70371). The messages contain a URL address. These 50 to 70 messages per month serve no purpose but to increase my phone bill. I have asked my carrier (Movistar), who has told me there is no way to block the sender (obviously: my carrier is happy with the fact that 10% of my phone bill comes from these SMS messages).

 

Does somebody know a way to block a specific sender?

 

Many thanks in advance,

 

Joe

Hi Joe!

According to a Twitter conversation between another user having the same issue as you (on the same carrier), Movistar suggests doing the following:

Para que esos sms no te lleguen mas envia BAJA al 70371 ^LP

So according to that, I would recommend texting BAJA back to 70371 and hopefully that will stop the messages.

Good luck and I hope that works for you!
