How To Block Spam SMS’s On Symbian OS Phones Like Nokia, Sony Ericsson
If you are tired of receiving SMS spam on your cell phone / mobile phone, then SMS Spam Manager will help you block those unwanted SMS’s from reaching your phone. You can set filters or rules according to which the SMS is either let in or flagged as SPAM. SMS spam manager helps you keep the junk / unwanted messages from bothering you.
Once you install Spam Manager, you’ll have the control to set up filters (there are 6 different type of filters available), which will act as a gateway or condition checker when SMS’s come in. If the incoming SMS passes or adhere’s to the rules set by you, it’ll land in your Cell phones inbox, else will be deleted without any further notice or indication.
Using the 6 different available filters, user can tune the phone to work in 4 different modes, and they are :
1> Accept all: If the SMS Spam Manager is turned off or inactive mode is turned on, then you will receive all the messages coming in.
2> Block all: If you do not want to receive any incoming messages at all, you can turn on the Block all mode, which will ensure no message reaches your inbox. This might be very helpful, if you are in any important meeting and you do not want to be disturbed.
3> Accept Phonebook Only: If you turn this on, then your phonebook will act as a white list. If you get messages from people who are listed in your phonebook, then the message is let in, else it will be treated as Spam.
4> Block From Black List: You can create rules to black list messages on various parameters. They are – telephone numbers, prefix numbers and text match. If you get a message from a telephone number or from a number which matches the defined prefix number or the text matches the pre-defined text, such messages will be flagged as spam and ignored.
Note that all the messages that you block using different modes will be stored in “Blocked SMS log“, you can go through those messages and restore if in case any important message was blocked by mistake.
There is a trial version of this software available which will let you test the software for 20 incoming messages. You’ll have to buy the registration key in order to unlock the full version of the software. Each registration is for one single phone, which is based on the IMEI number of the phone and hence you will not be able to use the key on other phones.
