Most messaging apps these days have a block capability - similar to what the phone provides for calls. Verizon says I can block messages, but only from 5 numbers thru the "My Verizon" app - this is pretty lame. At any given time I have 20-50 numbers blocked on my phone due to spam calls, and while I get much less spam text, I have no reason to believe 5 is anywhere near enough. When will message plus, an otherwise very useful messaging app get a block capabilty?
I understand wanting to have the ability to block any unwanted contact. Let's look into this together. What make and model phone do you have? Are you only wanting to block a contact from messaging you? A number of phones allow you to block calls and text on the block list.

I'm only asking that message plus be fully competitive with other messaging programs.
The blocking capability might be included in the dialer application on the Note 8.

I certainly understand the benefit of being able to block as many numbers as you can. That's great that you have the new Samsung Galaxy Note 8. I looked through the features of your phone and see that if you were to add a number to the block list via the phone app, it will indeed prevent text messages from coming through. Below is a link that will walk you through adding a number to the block list on your phone:

The Google Messages app does this also. In the app you can chose to block a number that texts you. This is separate from the Google Dialer and call blocking.
