[Anveo] Blacklisting SMS Spam Is there a way to control incoming SMS? I want to do the usual, contacts only, etc.
I have received some spam and it even comes through even if the number is blacklisted. $0.01 for every spam message.
I would also like to know if this is possible.
In addition, I think a feature such as only contacts in a specific group such as "friends" or "family" in the contact check would be a benefit to avoid incoming SMS costs from unwanted numbers.

Blacklisting is not helpful - caller ID is usually different all the time.
I personally don't have a use for this feature. Can it be disabled altogether?
reply to JJ_GTA Interesting discussion. Reading »Re: ANVEO SmS I saw that there is an SMS configuration screen. That tab shows what you when you go to "Manage phone numbers" and click Edit if you have selected things. Here is what mine looks like, with me not having done anything with it. If somebody were to try to send me an SMS message, what would happen? If I were getting SMS messages from a spammer, it would be irritating to pay that small sum. If I could get text messages from those in my Contacts GENERAL list, that would be worthwhile. But it would be more important to me to not get spam messages. I don't know that I would even know there was an SMS message.
Interesting. I'm on the "Free" subscription package and don't have those restrictions on my phone number. I have received a single SMS message, not spam, but not intended for me either.

SMS can be disabled for a phone number. Just open a chat session and ask to disable SMS.
As far as blacklist for SMS; as JoeSchmoe007 pointed out, blacklist will not be very helpful because spam messages will come with random SenderID.
