    Tell him to knock it off.

    Change your number.

    The best revenge is living well. and knowing you have a better phone.

    Turn your firewall on. Then, find a better thing to do then text bomb him.

    Borrow another friends iPhone and use the spoof app to call him from his moms cell phone or GF's house/cell and be like "Oh crap, I just called Hope he doesn't find out abt us" and hang up quickly, lmao!

    Call T-Mobile and have them add Family Allowances to your account. For a couple bucks a month you can block whoever you want from calls or texts....I know its not free...but it fixes the problem. I used to work there and would advise people of this often, its been a year....so it may even work differently now, but worth a phone call.

    To get to your firewall settings , Options icon>security options>then you will see your firewall in the list(click on firewall) and see the different ways you can set it to block them

    PS: lol yeah as mentioned above then you can text bomb them without getting bombed back

    Yeah it would be cool if there was an way to also just block a certain number the only way I see to block them alone is to add other numbers to your "Address contacts" and then create an "except" list which it shows at the bottom in the firewall settings .But someone else may know if there is a way to.

    Use the firewall in your blackberry..
    Go to setting- security- firewall
    turn it on and block sms and only allow people in your contacts.
    then delete them from your contacts..
    no more text from them

    At least Blackberry has useful apps. Appel always talks about having 100,000 apps, but have you ever looked at a lot of them. They are pointless stupid apps that are good for nothing productive.

    And the % of the 100,000+ that are good still outnumber BB App World's total amount. Its a tired argument now to make about crap apps in Apple's store. Look in BB App World, there are fart apps and plenty of stupid apps too.

    I wouldn't consider that person a "friend" if that is the idea of fun they have. Tell him to grow the **** up.
