If you're being bullied by TXT or receiving unwanted TXTs and PXTs you can block them with Vodafone Blacklist. Simply control the TXTS and PXTs you receive by creating a list of mobile phone numbers you don't want to receive TXTs or PXTs from. Vodafone Blacklist is free and exclusive to all Vodafone On Account and Prepay customers.
Vodafone Blacklist is a great way to reduce the impact of text bullying. However if you are a victim of TXT bullying you might find our information on responsible mobile use helpful.
If you are concerned or upset about a message, talk to someone you trust. If the messages are threatening we suggest that you contact the police.

In London in 2011, the world's premier telecommunications industry publication, Global Telecoms Business, presented Vodafone New Zealand with the annual Consumer Service Innovation Award, for Blacklist, recognising the social responsibility shown by Vodafone and its partner Telsis.
Blacklist has been well received by Vodafone's 2.5 million mobile customers. In its first five months the service had more than 9200 subscribers, with an average of 110 new users joining each day. It is a free service for all Vodafone customers. At launch, Blacklist was a world first and New Zealand first and Vodafone is still the only New Zealand network to offer this service today.
