    Re: Is there a way to delete an SMS message without opening it?

    My dear friend there is a better option for you.The thing that you should do is open that message and note the number.After that you should go to the contacts and then then go to number blocking service.There you add that number and simply just block it and then save the settings.After that you won't be able to receive any sms or call from that number.
    Good luck!!!
