Here's the lowdown on how to use SMS with a Verizon phone.
Maximum message length: 160 characters, including the sender's email address, subject line, and callback number
What happens to longer messages: Everything after the 160th character will be cut off and discarded
Cost per message: 15 cents for each text message you send or receive, 25 cents for picture and video messages ("PIX and FLIX" messages) -- or less, if you sign up for an "IN Messaging" package, starting at $10/month for 500 messages.
Is there a way to block messages from a specific number or source (I'm getting some kind of "spam" message I'd like to stop)

Anonymous, Verizon does let you block SMS messages from specific sources, or even block all messages that come from the web.
Go to www.vtext.com and go to the "My TXT" menu and click on "TXT Blocking". You'll have to sign in with your mobile number and password. From there you should be able to set up the spam filters you need.

I set up blocking on a specific number with the sprint network and the person still isn't blocked. I blocked her with exactly the way her message came in: 10digitno@MESSAGING.SPRINTPCS.COM What am I doing wrong? Do I need to do something with my phone?
