1. Invalid senders such as LM-ASTROLOGY, TD-LOTTERY
2. Specific Phone numbers
As all non-numeric senders are regarded as SPAM, initially, you need to train this application to ALLOW some of the trusted senders.
Once marked as 'Trusted' - the SMS from that sender would then be delivered directly in your Messaging 'Inbox'.
SPAM from numeric numbers are not blocked automatically (as they are proper phone-number formats). Once added to 'Blocked List' the from that sender would be collected here too.
