Is it possible through a setting or an app to receive only text messages and not phone calls?

Specifically I have an Samsung galaxy s3

Not tested: you could disable the Dialer, go to Settings > Applications > Phone (or possibly 'dialer') and disable. Not a great work around. You could route it to your Google Voice mail if you have that set up. You could use a blacklist app: play.google.com/store/apps/… or play.google.com/store/apps/… and see if you can block only calls... Let me know if anything suits or works and I'll expand a fuller answer. –  RossC Apr 17 '14 at 10:44
