Are you tired of receiving unwanted text messages on your Android Verizon device? Luckily, there’s a way to block them and regain control over your inbox. In this tutorial, we’ll walk you through the steps to block text messages on your Android Verizon device.

Step 1: Open the Messaging App

To begin, open the messaging app on your Android Verizon device. This is usually denoted by an icon that looks like a speech bubble.

Step 2: Access Message Settings

Once you have opened the messaging app, look for the three-dot menu icon in the top-right corner of the screen. Tap on it to access additional options. From the dropdown menu, select “Settings”.

Step 3: Navigate to Block List

In the settings menu, you will find several options related to messaging. Scroll down until you see an option called “Block List” or “Blocked Numbers”. Tap on it to proceed.

Step 4: Add a Number to Block

Now, you will see a list of numbers that have been blocked on your device. To add a new number to this list, tap on the plus or add icon usually located at the bottom-right corner of the screen.


If you have previously blocked any numbers, they will be listed here. You can remove them by tapping on the X or delete icon next to each number.

Step 5: Enter Phone Number

A popup window will appear asking you to enter the phone number you want to block. Type in the phone number and make sure it is accurate.


You can also choose to block numbers from your contacts by tapping on the contacts icon and selecting the desired contact.

Step 6: Confirm Blocking

After entering the phone number, tap on the “Block” or “OK” button to confirm. The number will now be added to your blocked list, and you won’t receive any more text messages from that number.

Step 7: Additional Settings

If you want to make further adjustments to your blocking settings, you can explore additional options in the messaging app settings. Some devices offer features such as blocking messages from unknown senders or filtering messages based on specific keywords.


Keep in mind that blocking text messages may vary slightly depending on the make and model of your Android Verizon device. The steps outlined above should work for most devices, but it’s always a good idea to consult your device’s user manual or Verizon’s support website for specific instructions.

Congratulations! You have successfully learned how to block text messages on your Android Verizon device. Now you can enjoy a clutter-free inbox without unwanted distractions.
