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 issue67179291_443055139625498_6787197321625993216_n.jpg
