If your Wireless cell phone carrier is Alltel, the process of Blocking Text Messages is relatively simple.

From your wireless phone, create a new text message using the following guidelines:

  • Enter 8888 for the recipient
  • Within the message body, type B and the ten digit phone number you would like to block, (For example B 3084234567), then send the message. Notice the space between B and the phone number is mandatory
