    Is there an SMS app for iPhone that doesn't require the people in your contacts to sign up to use it?

    I just got an iPhone 2 weeks ago and I've been using imessage but I've been receiving spam texts. It wouldn't be that big of a deal except their being sent by email and/or a website address and not a phone number so I can't block them.

    Here's an example of one.


    Thanks for any help!

    Go to settings>messages and turn on Filter Unknown Senders. This will create a 2nd tab on main iMessage screen for unknowns and from there you can report the junk to Apple and block the senders.
    Ecm and aximtreo like this.
