    Someone keeps on sending me a message saying:
    "Please buy me a donut"

    I do not know exactly how this happened as I did not apply my number to any online website, and I'm not exactly that old to have tabs on my number. It is annoying.

    Besides that, is there a way to block texts?

    As far as I know, you cannot block specific numbers from texting you. You can have texting turned off, but then you wouldn't be able to text anyone or receive any texts at all. Probably not what you're hoping for.

    My advice is to text back and tell them to cease and desist. If necessary, you can get the actual number used to text you from your bill, I believe, if you need to call the person. You might be able to threaten to contact the police. It could be seen as harassment/stalking. Unfortunately, crap like this is hard to fight. Some people are just so immature! Good luck!
