How to Block Messages or Spam on Blackberry

There are two options built-into the BlackBerry10 OS that enable you to block messages on your BlackBerry Z30, however it is important to note that there is no function to block specific numbers individually.

To block messages from spam and unknown numbers:

  • Open your Messages app and go into Settings.
  • Tap on Text Messages.
  • Turn on “Reject Anonymous Messages” and “Reject Advertisements”.

If you wish to block messages from specific numbers, you can simply remove them from your Contacts list and turn on the function to only allow messages from your contacts by performing the following steps:

  • Go into Settings > Security and Privacy > Parental Controls.
  • Turn on Parental Controls and subsequently “Text messages from contacts only”.
  • You will now only receive messages from numbers in your Contact list, and can remove the numbers you wish to block from it.

If you wish to unblock the numbers, simply go back to Messages > select the Menu icon at bottom-right and then tap Settings > Text Messages > MMS. Switch off the Reject Anonymous Messages and the Reject Advertisements options. 

Blackberry will also release updated guides, if there’s any. So don’t forget to visit their website for further instructions.
