Re: Strange text problem

Most android phones have a spam text list.
If you open the message app and go into settings you will see a spam or blocked folder I'll guess your messages are in there.

Re: Strange text problem

If I was blocked she wouldn't get my voice calls? besides that it is not a smartfone so blocking would be difficult on Vodafone
