If they text in one of those words, your phone number is automatically blocked off of their phone. Any text messages you send them will no longer be delivered to their phone, however they will still be sent weekly reminder notifications if the customer is still subscribed to a plan. This messages will not reach their phone, however it might still be annoying to you to see these messages sending every week.
