    I found a free app for my iPhone. It’s called YouMail.
    I have someone who is making threatening texts and emails in a twisted convoluted way.
    I just put their names and numbers under the Ditch voicemail I want and it not only plays what I want them to hear but it blocks them from leaving a message. OH, and also keeps a record of voicemail that can be shared if needed.
    There are smart arse messages or very real sounding ones. Like the verizon message saying they are sorry but the number you have dialed has been changed or is no longer in service. LOVE it.

    just want to block text from particular phone number. ATT service  Iphone last generation  Help?

    If you are on ATT
    go to this web page
    http://mymessages.wireless.att.com/
    this is a separate account from your standard AT&T account, so you may need
    to register at first if you’ve never done so
    Under preferences, go to Blocking
    Options. Here you will find several options.
    If you want to block only certain
    people from text messaging you, scroll down the page. There you will find Block and Allow Lists

    AT&T Smart Controls

    Our in-app Blacklist allows you to suppress certain numbers from producing an Alert of any kind and keeps it out of your Conversation List. Customize it to Auto-Delete the messages or to Hide them in the BlackList folder
