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.
