Re: Can I block numbers sending me sms on my optus mobile broadband internet device

Hi Ronnie123,


What's an example of the spam SMS?

Optus cannot block an individual number from calling or texting you 


You can report scams, phishing attempts or other hoaxes to the ACCC's Scamwatch website.  


Please also see our help and support page: Stop unwelcome nuisance calls or messages

Re: Can I block numbers sending me sms on my optus mobile broadband internet device

My Question was can I block a number from sending me messages on my Optus mobile internet device.

I didn't ask if Optus can do it.

I can block a number on my phone so can I do it on the mobile internet device ?

Giving an example of the messages I get will achieve nothing as will reporting them to scam watch.

It's a simple question that only needs a Yes you can do it and here's how ....or a No you cannot do it.

No, not that I'm aware of.
