The E90 is a marvelous piece of hardware. In the last five months of use, i’ve only had to reboot it twice and that too after installing software that was not compatible.
Here is some software that I’ve found out to be very useful.
SMS Spam Manager
SMS Spam Manager is made by Webgate. Unfortunately, unsolicited and junk SMS messages are on the rise. Every junk SMS message wastes around 10-15 seconds. And depending on what the SMS is all about, it could waste more by losing ‘focus’ 🙂
With the SMS Spam Manager, you can define your very own idiots list 🙂 which the software calls blacklist. Your phone will silently send all SMS messages from any blacklisted number to the junk folder. Your Phone will not alert you (beep) if the SMS is from a number in the blacklist. Fortunately, my circle comprises of sane people and hence the idiots list is pretty small 🙂
As you can see above, I’ve chosen the ‘Block Black List Rules’. If you choose the ‘Accept Phone Book’ setting, then only contacts in your Phonebook can send you an SMS.
A log is maintained for the blocked SMS messages. You can view them if you like or let them stay in oblivion.
