You can register your lines @ www.vtext.com and set it so you dont recieve txt from email addresses.

 

You may also want to look into Usage Controls

okay, i called the number you gave me and the website is down. The rep advised me she would be glad to bloke premium text messages which is free, i said yes and that she could not block anything else! She then said i needed to wait for the website to come back up in 45 min. to an hour.

Good deal. Hopefully you can get the blocks in place that you need. If vtext.com doesnt work, you can always explore the Usage Controls options. It is $4.99 a month but it would definitely protect your daughter from these unwanted messages.

no, I choose not to pay. A co worker in her office just logged into the www.vtext.com and pulled up her info and she has the options listed below, copy and pasted below.....

 

Keep unwanted messages from being sent to your handset from specific e-mail addresses, domain names and websites.

Yeah, you want to check off yes on the first two.

 

The third one is for VZW specific addresses.
