If you know any of the phone numbers from which you receive spam you can touch Add to spam numbers and add those phone numbers. Further messages from those numbers will be filtered out as spam.

If you've noticed particular phrases that tend to appear in the spam you receive you can touch Add to spam phrases and then add those phrases to have new messages containing them filtered out as spam.

You can also touch the check box next to "Block unknown messages" to block messages from all unknown senders.
