Fortunately, here you can also determine some phrases to activate the spam block, such as "Dear friend", "Act Now", etc. But, you should remember that the term is case sensitive, so it will be different if you type "Dear friend" with "dear friend". By adding some phrases, then all incoming message which is containing one or more of the registered phrase will be considered as spam and will be directed to the spam folder.

How to register text phrases as spam?
To do so kindly follow the steps listed below:
  1. Open Messaging apps.
  2. Tap the Menu key.
  3. On pop up menu select Settings.
  4. Make sure you've enabled Spam Settings under Spam message settings section. When the checkbox next to this option is ticked means the option is turned on.
  5. Tap Register phrase as spam.
  6. Tap Add new (+) button.
  7. Here you can enter the desired term or word into the field.
  8. Tap Save button to save the changes.
  9. Tap Home button to return to the standby mode.

By registering some phrases as spam, now you can block all incoming message which is containing the registered phrase. The message will be marked as spam and will be redirected to the spam folder. So, what's the phrase you've already registered to block spam messages on your Galaxy SIII?

  1. I have a galaxy ace 3. I want to disable vibration at ALL times but none of the forums online tell me how, they're all about specific issues like incoming messages etc. I don't even want it to vibrate when the phone powers on or off. Nada, never! There's no way on the device I can find. Help!
