Can someone tell me what Content Services are.I have had one charge show up in my account and would like to know what I did to get it.Also would it come within my $59 cap with my iPhone 4s? Thank you
Solved! Solved: Go to Solution.
Content services are basically 1900/crazy frog ringtone/love calculator kind of stuff that are never included in your cap. Most commonly, texting Aus Idol or breakfast shows. Often the fine print on these offers does not immediately convey that the cost is not of a standard text.
Thanks for your reply.I realise now what it was I did to get this charge and made sure to stop any possibility of extra charges.In the end there was only a 23 cent cost to me for the text message I needed to send.At least that is all that is showing up under the my account page.
Hey Michelle12 and Unknown-Newbie,
Content services and 19/1900 numbers are all premium services. Some of them are subscriptions, where as others are once-off.
Content Services include and are not limited to Chat services, competitions, Votings on TV Shows, Horoscopes, Jokes, Wallpaper, Music etc range in costs from $0.25 SMS up to $4-5 per message sent/received.
The quickest way to stop any Premium SMS subscriptions is to text the word STOP to the 19xx number the messages are coming from.
You are able to monitor current Premium SMS spent, set spend limits and apply barrings via MyAccount.
Find more info on Premium Services here
Content services would generally be something that you would need to subscribe to, so pop-up windows from games should not be the cause here. Have you received any text messages with the option to opt out of any services/promos?
If you take a look at the bill, there will be a itemised listing of those charges as well as a name/description of the service. Post back if you have any further questions.
