Lately I've been receiving messages with a keyword FREEmsg, they seem to be selling adult content which is inappropriate for my age and I want to block them. The message says that to stop you need to send FREEmsg to 61177 but after doing research I've found that can charge alot.

 

Is there anyway I can block these messages?

I'm sure there are plenty of other similar apps on the Market.

You could try an app called "Private SMS & Call" on the Android Market that let's you block calls and texts from specific numbers.
