Re: Blocking someone's number

go into an o2 shop & ask them to do it for you. i think you may have to pay £10 to do it though or a cheaper way is ask for a sim card, they are usually free & top up by £10 or £15 & then the person in question wont be able to bother you

Re: Blocking someone's number

Not sure if there is a way with the iPhone as I am not a user.

I've seen mention of call blockers but these don't work with text messages.

 

 

To contact O2 click "Contact us" at the bottom of any O2 page, and click the service you need, or wait for "Live Chat" to appear.

Re: Blocking someone's number

Text comes by a totally different route, this is why there is a lot of problems with unsolicited text messages.

 

If one person is really harassing you then you could report them or change your number. 

O2 will do this once for free.

o2 do not offer a call blocking service if it is a nuisance then you can change number or involve the police search the support site for nuisance calls for all info http://bit.ly/ITRfh9
