    That's what I thought.. my brother and I both have iphone7 on latest iOS and neither have a report junk showing. Maybe a bug

    It's definitely an "iMessage" (blue text bubble)?

    SMS messages are green.

    Can anyone verify that this is working on their phone?

    Yeah I was wondering where it went. It's gone now. Never to be seen again

    It's still there. I just used it. 6s+ iOS 10.1.1.

    It was something that was supposedly fixed in some fashion in iOS 10.1 (listed as one of the bullet items in the Messages section):

    Today I received an iMessage from a pal, who had a new number. At that time I had the option to report the number as spam, but obviously didn't, because, well, the dude's a good friend.

    Point being, the option was there for me as it should be.

    Settings.... Messages. Turn on "filter unknown senders". Works for me on all devices.

    This is a workaround? As far as I've seen it is a bug that hasn't been fixed. I don't want a workaround that changes settings and instead will wait for the bug fix for the bug fix

    I don't think it's a workaround. It's been working for me since inception. Worked today

    If you receive a spam text or iMessage in the Messages app from a number or email address that is not in your contacts list, you will see the option to Report as Junk at the very bottom. To report a message as spam:

    1. Tap on the blue Report as Junk link at the very bottom of the message.
    2. Tap Delete and Report Junk button in the pop up menu. I've highlighted the Report Junk portion of the button because the delete function didn't work in my testing.

    Alternatively, you can report spam directly to Apple via email. Take a screenshot of the offending spam message, the phone number or email it came from, and the time of day you received it and send it to imessage.spam@icloud.com and Apple will investigate the claim.

    Capt obvious here....
    Works for me.
    The dude asked if turning it on was a workaround. I pointed out it was not. Read.

    I agree I think it is a bug. The 'report junk' should be showing from default

    Is the Report Junk only for iMessage (Blue) or for SMS (Green) also ?
    It's probably a dumb question but I'd like to make sure ;-))

    In my understanding it's only there for iMessages.

    Maybe "report junk" is disabled if the number is in your contacts ? Sorry if I've misunderstood.

    I didn't even know you can report from the message.

    That's right, but I'm talking about numbers that aren't in my contacts. It should also be there for numbers that come through with a name - as if they were in ones contact list, but aren't
