    I didn't have to create a contact. In messages, I opened up the detail, tapped the number and selected block caller. it's a couple more steps but eliminates the need to add the contact.
    Works for blocking text from an email too.

    I've been blocking email addresses in messages a long time. Most spam I get in messages comes via email. It puts the email address on the blocked list, but I have no idea if it is in fact blocked.

    I know because I've been doing this for a while now.

    It blocks the email address so you won't receive text messages from it (99% spam, if unsolicited).

    However, I don't know if doing it this way actually blocks the email address from your inbox.

    I doubt it blocks in the inbox. I meant in messages. I've wondered about it a long while. I block them and add to the list, but just never knew if it actually did work.

    iOS 10 has changed the process a little to block messages:

    1. Go into the message
    2. Click the "i" in the upper right
    3. Click the number the message was sent from
    4. Scroll to the bottom and select "Block this Caller"

    This blocks all phone and text messages from them.
