How to block calls/ messages from certain people? (Lumia 920)

I know that there's a pre-installed "Nokia Spamfilter" only avaliable in China that can block calls/ messages from certain number.

 

But is there any other software avaliable in US that can help block messages?

 

Thanks.

Re: How to block calls/ messages from certain people? (Lumia 920)

hi, i just blocked some numbers for calls and SMS. For reference I have USA TMOBILE service with 920 Lumia phone (in case ATT doesn't have the block call feature supported).  1) i did phone update software Settings>Phone Update (just in case i needed some extra software) waited about 10 minutes after update and restarted phone. 2) Went to Settings>Call+SMS Filter> turn on the Block Calls +SMS. 3) find the number you want to block by going to Phone History, click and hold the number that you want to block. 4) a drop down of block number option should be given. 5) click block number, say "yes" to confirm you want to block the number. 

 

I found that I can only block the number from my Phone History menu. I can not choose to block the number from where i have the number saved in my contacts.  Also there is a way to set up a home screen icon that will report blocked numbers and a call log.   you can pin those icons to the home screen by doing Settings>Call+SMS Filter>Advanced turn on the App Live tile and Notification.  hope this helps
