Here's the Block number to AIM. I suggest you add it to your contact under the name AIM Block so you'll be able to use it any time you wish. So 265007 is the block number.

265008 is the unblock number. I recommend creating an AIM Unblock contact as well in case you ever decide to unblock someone in the future.

To block Yahoo messenger from sending you text messages. Create a contact for the Yahoo Block number (92466). But read on before using it. Yahoo is a little different from AIM.


If you do not want to receive any Yahoo! SMS text messages, text "block all" to 92466. (without quotes)

If you only wish to block messages from a specific Yahoo! ID, text block [username] to 92466, where [username] is the Yahoo! ID of the person you wish to block.


As you can see in the previous image. If you text unblock [username] to the yahoo block number it'll unblock them.


I hope someone finds this helpful.
