    Hello all,

    Please help! I'm getting slammed with odd MMS messages non stop for up to an hour at a time. All from "Unknown" sender. I am using Samsung ATIV SE so a Nokia only solution likely won't help me. I am on T-Mobile, so if anyone knows if there is a way to set up with them to do this, that would be nice.

    I found a setting to block texts from specific numbers, but none to block from Unknown or Anonymous senders. Is there any solution or workaround that anyone knows of?

    In call and SMS blocker you have an option to block calls and SMS' from unknown/no id numbers. The app should work the same...it's not a Lumia app,comes with the OS

    Thanks for the reply. Is that a Windows 8.1 setting? The only 2 settings I have that could help are
    1. "Call Blocking" which does allow "Reject Anonymous incoming calls". However, that is only calls, not SMS.
    2. "Call/Message settings" > "Blocker" > "SMS Blocker" > "Settings". However, this allows only phone numbers to be blocked, not anonymous.

    Is there another one hidden somewhere?
