Note that the initial advertisement for the service must contain the provider name, and your phone service provider must also provide this information on request."] Given the amount of threads being created about receiving unsolicited Premium SMS's, it is time to create a single thread for discussion (so as to keep it all in one place, the topic has been much the same in the separate threads).Regardless of carrier/Premium SMS number, please use this thread to discuss unsolicited Premium SMS issues.Thank you for helping me with my previouse post: forum-replies.cfm?t=891619I did sms STOP to: MC 19951111 All Day .09 .09I got a reply on the 07/01/08: [Free Msg] Thanks.I have also restricted my home phone so no 190x number can be called.
It looks like sending STOP does not work on their system :( That was the fisrt thing I had disabled on my mobile when I bought my phone, a preventative measure, so that there was no chance I could be "stung", I also have no need to access Premium SMS numbers.
But I can't blame you for saying that when you see some of the things offered by subscription SMS. Some information relevant to Telstra customers regarding Premium Calls and SMS can be found on their web site.
Most other carriers and phone providers including the smaller ones that resell have similar web pages, so it won't hurt to check their web site.
It turns out that M block is only directing the sms' or sending them which means they aren't responsible for the refund. I didn't subscribe for .50 horoscope messages that come daily. Optus said they couldn't block it for me because its a third party provider. Thats what a credit card is for or even better a debit card.
M block gave me the contact details of the actual content provider, Fun Messages, which is located in the USA. As I don't see my telco as being a financial institution I have been fighting one of these since New Year's Eve (over two weeks).
