    SMS/MMS is exchanged via your carrier's cellular network, so contact your carrier.

    Not possible in the US, and since 3rd party apps don't have access to private iPhone API's which would be required for a 3rd party app to block the receipt of SMS/MMS along with needing access to your carrier's servers, no 3rd party apps are available for this.

    I also received this message: "Ihre Nummer gewinnt heute! Gehen Sie auf http://www.apfel.ch.gewinner.us und geben Sie den Code: 5138 ein, um Ihr kostenloses Produkt zu erhalten!" The number sending this was a USnumber: +1 (832) 955 4979.

     

    Maybe someone can help find out down who sends this and how they got my number!

     

    Thanks
