Internet/Network Security/Anti Spam SMS Filter


Dear John

Similar to Anti Spam Email Filters, Is it possible to build Anti Spam SMS Filters ?.

i.e. Similar to having inbox, outbox, drafts, send messages folder can we also have a Spam folder where the Spam SMS Messages are redirected to SMS Folder and not Inbox messages folder ?.

There are many chances for sending bulk sms which are Spam SMS by Spamsters. If there is Anti Spam SMS Filter designed and developed for cellphones, smartphones, this SPAM SMS will be redirected
automatically to SPAM Folder,  instead of messages redirecting to inbox folder.

Awaiting your reply,

Thanks & Regards,

I'm sure it's possible. Thinking along the lines of creating a custom SMS app and then you can build in some features. Alternatively, some mobile protection software has a feature to "black list" any numbers that send you spam, or block anyone not in your address book-this is a slightly different approach than what you are describing.

Avast is only one sample though..there are tons of apps out there in all the app stores-test them out!
