    There will be a time in life when you need to block someone, be it a cold sales contact or someone who may be harassing you. Unfortunately, Windows Phone 8 doesn't currently have a built-in blocking feature to prevent numbers from sending messages to your smartphone, nor can the operating system halt calls in their tracks. But Microsoft did make tools for manufacturers to enable this feature, should they want to make it for their customers.
    This is where Nokia came in with its 'call + SMS filter', which launched on Windows Phone 8*last year for Lumia devices (Samsung has it in their ATIV line of Windows Phones too).
    We'll quickly walk you through how to set everything up, just in case you've yet to fire up the filter settings area for the first time.

    Just remember pictures will still come through and if a long rant text sometimes gets converted and sent as an MMS so it will come through too
