Hi I have a Samsung Galaxy 2S. How do I block SMS texts of my choice and only allow the phone calls? How do I block certain numbers from texting and not all of them, in other words, but allow the ones I'm blocking from sending me texts to call me instead if they so choose?

  • You can't prevent your phone from receiving texts except at the network level. But you should be able to have them auto-deleted/ignored pretty easily at the user software level. What have you tried? "SMS Filter" is one of the top results for me and looks promising. – Matthew Read Oct 17 '14 at 22:00

  • I use QKSMS for SMS. I integrate QKSMS with Should I answer?. If I block number in Should I answer?, I not will receive SMS from this number too. Thanks. – Саша Черных Dec 26 '17 at 9:46

Blocking Contacts entirely is easily enough done. There is also SMS and call filtering applications that are free on the market- ESET AV is also a paid alternative. SMS filter and clean inbox are two alternatives for SMS blocking which both work quite well.

To combine both, there is a aFirewall SMS and call filter. With many of these apps you're able to create set filers for calls, SMS or contacts to prevent them from bothering you.
