How to Block Incoming Messages Without Application
It’s easy to block someone on most social media apps. But what if
someone’s bothering you with text messages or calls?
The good news is, you can block numbers from calling and sending you
texts without a third-party app. Smartphones and other text supporting mobile
devices today allow you to block specific phone numbers by using a built-in
feature. It’s available and easily accessible on most models.

The steps might vary depending on the operating system your phone is running, or the model you’re using. However, the process should be more or less similar on all Android devices. Follow the instructions below to block messages from specific numbers:

You can’t block a specific number this way, so you need to go through the messaging app. However, you can go back to your list of calls, tap a contact and hold until a pop-up menu appears. Then select Block contact from this menu, and this contact will be added to your blocked people list.
You can block a number from calling you in a few easy steps. Here’s what to do:
Be aware that a blocked person can leave you a voicemail. And you won’t receive any notifications about it. The person who’s trying to call you won’t know that you’ve blocked them because they don’t receive notifications about a message not being delivered.
Blocking people from sending you text messages is a convenient
option enabled by Android and iOS operating systems. Not only does this save
you from stalkers, but it also keeps your phone spam-free. You won’t have to
deal with unwanted ads or any other type of spam messages anymore.
