    Actually, try this:

    Options>Security Options>Firewall>Change Disabled to "Enabled"
    and then underneath that, in the Block Incoming Messages section, check the SMS box along with any others you'd like, and then check the Contacts box below "Except Messages from"

    Hope this works out for you, let me know.

    Forgot to add, make sure you save those settings I listed when you back out.

    My Verizon BlackBerry Curve 8330 / 4.3.0.127 doesn't have "Except messages from" in the firewall settings -- it's just Yes/No for the various message types. Is that perhaps an OS-specific option?
