Lately, I received text messages from email addresses. I reported them as spam to block them but they kept using new email addresses. I PUT A STOP TO THIS MADNESS BY CALLING MY PROVIDER TO DISABLE THE FEATURE THAT ALLOWS MY PHONE TO RECEIVE TEXT MESSAGES FROM EMAIL ADDRESS. BYE BYE SPAM TEXT😝. If you are having the same problem, maybe you should consider doing the same.
Same here. I'm really sick of it. I get several per day. There's no way to block them. Verizon says there should be an option in the Messages app, but there isn't. Samsung, please fix!!!
Have an A32 5G and have the same problem. The functionality in the app to block numbers ONLY WORKS ON NUMBERS. When I attempt to block the latest attempt at phishing via SMS/text, the app responds with a little popup message that states that that's not a valid phone number.
HELP, SAMSUNG! You need to update the app to add an option that blocks ALL MESSAGES FROM ANYTHING THAT ISN'T A PHONE NUMBER. The fact that it's possible to send SMS from an email address opens all your users up to a torrential flood of SPAM. (Maybe I'm wrong, and it only LOOKS like it's coming from an email address, and in reality it was sent from a phone number, but I cannot SEE the phone number so I don't know whom to BLOCK. I tried calling my 'carrier' and they only suggested downloading an APP from the Google Play Store which I shouldn't have to DO. PLEASE FIX THIS FOR ALL GALAXY PHONES! There's no reason this cannot be done. Just add an option: if the incoming message has an AT SYMBOL in it, BLOCK IT before it reaches my DEVICE!
I bought TWO Samsung devices, (an A32 phone and A7 tablet,) because I got sick of Apple's shenanigans. DON'T MAKE ME GO BACK TO APPLE, Samsung.
