Disable SMS on landline?

What it says on the tin, really. We keep getting text messages sent to the landline.  I'd like to turn this option off entirely as they come through at silly times and wake people up, but wasn't able to find any info on how to go about this. Can someone point me in the right direction?

Hello @crystamartin it is not possible to disable incoming text messages I am sorry. What landline phone do you have? You may be able to block the number using the handsets settings.

Try phoning 1470 0800 587 5252, Opt. 1, 5. This is a BT Text service. It may not work on EE. In which case you might have to phone CS to switch it off. 

If you think I helped please feel free to hit the "Thumbs Up" button below.

To phone EE: The local rate landline number +44 207 362 0200 or Freephone +44 800 079 8586 - Option 1 for Mobiles; Option 2 for 4G WiFi; Option 3 for Home Broadband & EE TV.

ISPs: 1999: Freeserve 48K Dial-Up => 2005: Wanadoo 1 Meg BB => 2007: Orange 2 Meg BB => 2008: Orange 8 Meg LLU => 2010: Orange 16 Meg LLU => 2011: Orange 20 Meg WBC => 2014: EE 20 Meg WBC
