Taking out the phone from your pocket while you are driving, just to check a text message you have received is inconvenient enough – but when you discover that you went through all that trouble to check an unwanted text message, the ordeal is downright frustrating.
Various phone service carriers provide you with the option to block texts from certain numbers, but they charge you for this service. If you own an Android smartphone and are looking for a free solution to this problem, you should check out an app called SMS Filter.
SMS Filter is a free to use smart device application compatible with Android devices. The function of the application is to enable its users to mark text messages from certain phone numbers as spam.
