I am getting texts in another language and want to block the number.  All of the previous conversations I've found on this support center only address voice and fax features.  Is there a way to block a number from the text feature?

There is no way to only block a number from texting only...but allow the voice call.  You'll have to block the entire thing (voice, fax, and SMS) under Screening, Greeting, and Hold Music.

What if they only sent a text. I got an explicit text only, with no voice message. How can I block that?

Hi Angie, you can open a Support Ticket and they should be able to help you out :)
