Just got my lg g3 yesterday and having issues getting this to work. Coming from and old htc it was easy as going into the contact and hitting block.

I have figured out how to block calls from this number but blocking texts i cannot do. I have found how to block through both the call app and the call log by holding down kn the number. When i do this on a text in the message app the only thing that pops up is the contact and the delete option.

Please help me find spam directory you are mentioning. I have the lg g3 from sprint runing 4.4.2 .

Thanks

Does this work from any screen other than call logs? I'd like to block some numbers on my old spam list _before_ they call me for the first time on this phone.

There are call blocking apps, and an Xposed module which allow you to block SMS, if you are rooted.

I would rather not root my phone just yet. I may go in and look at the htc m8 and see if they offer this feature still.

Call Filter doesn't require root. I have used it for over a year on multiple phones blocks calls and I believe texts but I don't need to block texts so haven't tried.

No, I learned this the hard way, it only works from the call logs screen .
