What is a good app for blocking incoming SMS? I want it to be easy and able to add numbers from contacts and not require to many privileges (probably only some storage and intercepting SMS).

'Call & SMS Filter'. I've not used it but description matches what you are after & very good comments. I believe Handcent SMS also has block options.

Required privileges on both are greater than your preference though.

I found SMS Filter, that only intercepts messages and requires no privileges. It doesn't allow to add number from contacts though.

Root Call Blocker Pro does block calls and SMSs

Requires superuser privileges and is payware.

But it damn works!
