    You don't need an app for backing up text messages the os has it built in. Go to settings > backup. As far as I know there are no call block apps but you can block any number with your carrier.

    There is no way to back up your messages in a user accessible format like a csv. Windows phone can automatically back your messages up to the cloud for use in the event of a new phone or a reset, but are not user viewable outside of a full restore.

    And there are no call blocking apps on the store, the sandbox nature of the API access prevents this, but you can often block numbers through your wireless carrier from their web site or by contacting customer care.
