    Can anyone help with this?

    I keep getting the following SMS message, 3-4 x a day. My carrier can't explain (Telus).

    Anyone have an idea what it might be?

    Ugh... That's weak. I'd get so annoyed by that. Have you tried setting up your sms to block ads? Just curious if that might work.

    Yes I have. Unfortunately the option to block ads is only available for MMS

    When someone calls you, does he have the option to only left his contact number, instead of a message ? If so, this message is from your carrier giving you this number.

    EDIT: Or not... I was thinking of this : http://www.t-mobile.mk/public/call-me.nspx

    What OS are you on? Your menu is different than mine.. Maybe try flipping the switch on anonymous messages? Or updating your OS? Because I have that option under text messages

    I'm running 10.2.1.3442

    My worry for anonymous off is that if the sender is someone I know but isn't in my address book that text won't come in.

    But if you notice in your screen shot, the option isn't under text either (sms) it's under the MMS heading.

    Oh you're right! Haha, missed that... Yeah I hear that, it would stink if your phone blocked the wrong stuff. Well, worst case, you download one of the many sms blockers on BBWorld. There are free options if you don't want to spend any money on it. Not that you should have to. Hope you get this whole thing resolved. Good luck

    The problem with SMS Blocker apps is that they only block messages that show real, full phone numbers. As in, area code + number. Can't really block a SMS with only "11" as the phone number. I receive a lot of spam SMS from 5-digit numbers and I can't seem to block them with the app I tried.

    Anyone know for sure of an app that can block such type of SMS?

    Do we have an alternative to the Firewall feature of OS 7? http://btsc.webapps.blackberry.com/b...ListHelperImpl
