I have an annoying Stalker and an iPhone 3GS. How can I block their calls and text messages to me?

Based on this recent iPhone question
, I'm wondering if there are new options now available to block someone's phone calls and/or texts? Especially the text messages. Phone calls are not so much a problem because I can opt not to answer... but I actually have to look at the text messages in order to delete. Hate that.
In fact, I'd love it if I could allow the calls, yet block the text messages. I'd like this person to get bored (sometime in the next decade) while limiting their ability to communicate actual information to me.
It's better now than it was 3 years ago, but I'm pretty sure if I abruptly changed my number (or made it seem to them I did) this person would "ramp up" attempts to keep communication instead of fading out. I'm trying to call as little attention to myself as possible as I move forward.
At least 4 months ago this function was not available on the iPhone. I'm also willing to upgrade to the brite shiny new iPhone if there are more options available to me with that model.
Thanks so much!
