  7. 7
    Scroll down to the "Settings" section.
    We can see the option that says "Save block message". If this option is selected, it will save messages that have been blocked from our blocked contacts. We'll still be able to read them, but it will save them in the block box. If we don't want this to happen, then these messages will not reach us. It will block them completely, and they will not enter into our HTC One M8 phone. This a choice we'll need to make. We may still want to receive messages from a blocked contact just to see what they are saying. Depending on the contact, we might still want to monitor what is being sent to our phone. If it's really bad and we don't want to receive it at all, uncheck this box to turn it Off. The message won't even make it to the HTC One M8 phone.
