i have a note 9 running android version 9 in the US. i have started to recieve spam text messages. they come from a name NOT a phone number so ther is now NO way to block that number because there isnt a number associated with the text. if i open it up it also at bottom says "converting to multimedia message" so i assume thats how they are being sent. no where is there a way to block them. cant even block the "certain phrases" anymore. cant add to contacts and then block from tehre becasue again no block option. anyone have any ideas?? i would assumed samsung would have put something in place to stop these but from what im reading they took features away. i have attached a pic of issue
