About Message Blocking

Message Blocking is a free T-Mobile service that allows you to block messages to and from your phone, to help you avoid unwanted messages.

  • You can block incoming and outgoing text messages (SMS), picture messages (MMS), Instant Messages (IM), and email. Messaging Blocking is intended to block all messages, not to prevent overages.
  • Message Blocking is not available for Pay in Advance (prepaid) accounts.
  • The Primary Account Holder can add or remove the Message Blocking on My T-Mobile.
  • Message Blocking will block text and picture messages even if you have a messaging feature on your account.
  • Message Blocking will not block instant messages or email on Windows Mobile or BlackBerry phones.



Messages that are not blocked with Message Blocking

  • Download messages for games or ringtones
  • Voicemail notifications
  • Wireless Emergency Alerts
  • Service notifications
  • Instant Messages (IM) or email sent to or from your phone using MobileLife Web
  • Email sent to and from your @tmomail.net address



Block messages from a specific number

You can block messages from a specific number by adding Family Allowances to your account. Once Family Allowances is added, you can change your settings to block messages from a specific number.
