    Welcome to iMore. Depends on what IOS you are running. If you are running IOS 7 or later, then yes you can. Here is a link to a guide on how to do it.

    Welcome to iMore!

    First, be sure to add your cell number to the Do Not Call registry (this is a government site ran by the FTC) :
    https://www.consumer.ftc.gov/article...-call-registry

    According to the 9th Circuit Court, these calls also cover text messages.

    On the phone go to Settings > Messages and scroll down to tick the button for Filter Unknown Senders. I believe this only works for iMessage though. Edit: See previous reply for additional info.
