Did you mean: 
CallFilterPlus Won't block a text

The free service still let a phone number go through as a text message.
I was told the best way to stop it was to buy Call Filter Plus for $2.99 so I did.
I blocked a number but it still came through.  So I did a text help with Verizon and the person told me to deleted the blocked number and input it again which I did last night.
I got another harrassment text this morning.
I am so unhappy with this Verizon non protection.  
Any ideas???

Re: CallFilterPlus Won't block a text

Actually I was finally told by Verizon in two chat sessions that  CallFilterPlus would not stop texts. 
So I said cancel that billing.  It was harassing text from a family member that has issues, it was not spam.  

Portion of the text on the second call.  See where they say it will not stop texts.

It does now . You can check this link as the features that call filter has click here

So I was on a chat earlier and they told me Call Filter Plus at $2.99 would not block texts from a number I put in the BLOCKD app.

I am here with you.

So are you saying the $2.99 should block a number from a text showing on my phone?

On just my line.  (hid my phone number )it is the only line getting harassing texts from a relative.

Verizon Agent

It will block calls not text

OK, finally I was told that. I have been on chats for the last 3 weeks and today is the only time I was told that.

SO, the only reason I bought the Call Filter Plus was to stop the texts. I think I am owed a refund.

Verizon Agent

I am sorry about that. Call filters prevent high tier spam calls.

There should be notes on my account showing I talked with them about stopping texts
