Block incoming messages

If your work email account is associated with a BlackBerry Enterprise Server, you might not be able to block or unblock PIN
messages from contacts within your organization, from contacts outside of your organization, or both.
When you block messages, you can set your smartphone to allow messages from specific contacts.


Do one of the following:
• To block all incoming email, PIN, or text messages, on the home screen or in a folder, click the Options icon. Click

Security > Firewall. Select the checkbox beside one or more message types.

• To block only text messages with attachments that are from an advertiser or unknown sender, on the home

screen, click the Text Messages icon.Press the

key > Options. In the MMS section, in the Message

Filtering section, select the Reject Anonymous Messages checkbox or the Reject Advertisements checkbox.


Press the

key > Save.

Note: Even though you don't receive blocked messages on your BlackBerry smartphone, blocked messages might
contribute to data usage in your wireless service plan. You can stop email messages from being forwarded to your
smartphone without contributing to data usage by turning off email message forwarding or by using email message filters.
