Try going through AT&T. call them or check on their website. If anybody can do it, it would be the service provider

Only you can controll yourself. Even if there was a program you would eventually turn the feature off and call or text anyway.

Best way is to move on to better things. Get your mind off her with a new one.

I had a problem with a telemarketer calling me 4 or 5 times a day! I had asked to be removed, but to no avail. Anyway, on the AT&T site, when you log into your account, you can block certain #'s. It cost 5 bucks a month, but it was worth it to me.. I have a land line phone forwarded to my cell, so I am always getting this.. I just go in, and block anyone, who is calling to much! HTH.

If you're jailbroken install iBlacklist.

Can block numbers and text as you want.

With att as far as I know txt is block all or none. not sure if you can request a block by phone.

+1 iBlacklist. It's free for up to 3 numbers I think? Works great.

Yes but he doesn't want to block incoming. He wants to block himself from calling or texting.

Delete the number? Unless you also have it memorized, then you'll just have to use some self-control.

I wish I was still young and this was my biggest worry. My biggest advice to you is to just stay single while you're young and have fun. Don't let relationships bring you down.

Also, I may get in trouble for saying this, but be nice to the girls that are sort of plain looking in middle/high school. They usually are the ones that turn into the real hotties once they mature and are in college or in their early 20's. You can thank me later.

As for trying to get over her, my advice is to just start talking to other girls. Friendly flirting would probably be enough to get your mind off of her and it doesn't do anybody any harm.
