When it comes to text messages, I'm sure at one point we have all received one or two (or more) unwanted SMS messages. Be it spam or texts from unknown numbers it can be quite disconcerting. SMS Blocker aims to eradicate those annoying incoming messages and leave only the genuine ones in your inbox.

Day-to-day use of the application is rather simple. One of the positives about this is that you don't necessarily have to manually input each number number you wish to block. It can bet set to automatically block all SMS or from unknown numbers or spammers. Users also have the option of manually adding to the block list or pulling the information from their contact list or existing messages.

In addition to the firewall capabilities, SMS Blocker Pro offers additional options as well such as customizable notifications including LED color, vibration or ringtone, auto reply, and password protection. All blocked messages are stored within the application for easy access and to review what is placed there. The app is adaptable to your preferences so numbers can be moved on and off the list as you see fit. Those messages are in turn remove from appearing in the HUB.

Features

  • Unique in-built intelligence in the app to AUTOMATICALLY block spam & harmful SMS from Unknown numbers and Spammers
  • Block SMS from a contact by adding it from Contact list, received SMS list (SMS Inbox) or by manually adding the number to Blocked list
  • See blocked SMS in "Blocked SMS" section
  • Reply to a blocked SMS from within the application
  • Add blocked SMS contact to Allowed List if the SMS is legitimate.When you allow a Contact,the SMS will also be moved back to the SMS Inbox (hub)

  • Seamless Integration with phonebook and SMS inbox 
  • Set Auto Reply for a Blocked SMS.Auto Replies are saved inside the application itself.SMS Blocker Pro deletes the replied SMS from Hub to increase the privacy
  • Set Auto Reply for a Regular SMS.This could be useful when you are in a meeting or if you are driving.In these cases you can set the auto reply message
  • Password Protection for preventing the application from unauthorized people.It can be disabled if not required. -- Most superior performance

For those of you bombarded by spam text messages, this application will help you eliminate them. One thing I observed as a Pebble owner is that while blocked messages do not appear in the hub, there is a chance it will show up on your smartwatch. You can purchase it for $1.99 for BlackBerry 10.

I do get txt spams, but still too rare to bother.

If you run a small business listed in the yellow pages, you will get more.

First question that popped in my mind after reading this.

Symantec claims SMS spam is increasing and expected to grow exponentially these next couple of years. So this will be nice to have in the toolbox just in case....

During the time I was using the legacy devices like the Torch 9800 I do remember getting unwanted BBM forwarded messages from Contacts. Those asking to share now and if you don't then you will experience misfortunes etc..
Does this Spam blocker Pro protect users from these types of tricky texts? Or maybe hackers have not found a way yet to compromise personal info of BlackBerry 10 users thereby not having the ability to send these types of boomerang messages going out and coming back in to them?

All four major carriers in Nigeria have resorted to full fledged spamming (in the guise of telemarketing) via SMS, sometimes sending the same message 12 times each day.
Content includes unsolicited links to sports, horoscopes, jokes, ring tones and dating forums/tips. Presently there is no way to unsubscribe from this mess.
Maybe not the typical usage scenario but that's just 48 reasons every day why someone might find this app useful...

Rightly Said ! That is why this app was made.At this time the "SMS Marketing" is at its peak.Daily people receive more than 15 text messages from various different numbers.If these SMS are not blocked,the phone will keep on ringing all the time.
