    Reply with STOP That's what my service provider told me. After a month or two, they're gone.

    If it's always the same number, you can certainly install a blocker app so long as you're jailbroken. I personally use biteSMS and you can block anything you want I believe (though I have never had to)

    I once prayed to God for an iPhone, but quickly found out He didn't work that way...so I stole an iPhone and prayed for His forgiveness.

    True.

    If it's the same number and STOP doesn't stop it. The cellular company should be notified. They will stop it.

    In fact I have iBlacklist install and using biteSMS but my iPhone always go into safe mode when there is a number which is not in the whitelist and phonebook. Is there anyway to prevent this? Actually I already contact my service provider but they say I must cleear all my outstanding bills before they can do anything. Really is WTF MAN
