You can enable the firewall to block text messages from senders that are not in your address book. Remove the individual from contacts and enable SMS blocking on the firewall. The disadvantage is that you will not be able to receive a text from anyone that is not in your address book.

I'd recommend "Call Control" assuming it's available for the Torch, I don't know. Here's the "Lite" version to try--> http://appworld.blackberry.com/webstore/content/3535/

I think there used to be an app for this, Mr. Number? But it appears to be gone now from the app store. Maybe the app is still somewhere in the interwebs. Sorry, I'd be a lot more helpful if this was an Android phone.

So how do you block an unwanted no on an Android

It depends which Android device you have. Some have a call rejection feature built in.

If yours doesn't have a call rejection feature, you should be able to find an app to help you in the play store.

+1 for Call Control.
