Add the person to your phonebook, then set up "accept calls from..." and select your entire phonebook except this person''s number. As far as text is concerned, it''s not going to happen. However if you do enough research on the internet and in other places, you will find there is a way to send over 100,000 text messages to one number (there may be a small charge, but it''s worth it for peace of mind) which means they won''t be able to turn on their phone or use that SIM again. Just a thought...

Oh thats mean. Remind me not to upset you!! Your network will usually change your number for you too if it becomes a real pain.

Hi Pete,
I have got the same problem with my wife''s phone. Your idea is great.
Would you be so kind to recommend a place I can use to send theses SMSs

Many Thanks

Due to the nature of the work involved to set such a thing up I am not allowed to mention it on a public forum. I really would if I could. It''s not entirely legit, shall we say?

pete, when i tried to work with the function: accept from calls (only list) , there are a limit to the groupp (15 persons only), the only solution was to create more and more groups to allow calls that i want then to only be answered...
but i didnt understand something in what u mentioned before, what do u mean by: you will find there is a way to send over 100,000 text messages to one number ....
i didnt understand it... can u clarify plz or tell me how?
thanks a lot...
