    Is there a way to block SMS messages from a specific phone number on the iPhone? I've been getting text message spam lately and can't figure out how to block the sender.

    Thanks in advance.

    Contact the vendor. They can put a block on a number for you.

    You can either do this by calling Verizon directly, or log into your Verizon account online and block them from there. However, from what I have read the blocked number is only good for a short period of time (90 days). Then you will need to re-block it if need be.

    yes you are correct it is only 90 days for the free version with vzw. Two things you should know, you can make it specific for one line on the account or all lines on the account. And at one point there was a paid version but i am not sure on price or if it is still available. works wonderful. usually before the 90 days is up they stop trying.
