I set up my new pre-paid sim yesterday and this morning I found my in box full of messages. I'm apparently now subscribed to various services that I want nothing to do with, saying they will cost me ten dollars a week each.
How did this happen and what should I do? The last time I responded to these sorts of messages on my old phone it burnt through all of my credit immediatly.
@dusk0range, keep us updated. These charges are known as Premium SMS content charges:
We've recently made some changes to our Premium SMS content offering. I'd suggest checking out the following blogs for more info:
@Dan_C That does seem like a good change, it means less people will have to worry about this sort of thing in the future... Doesn't particularily help me though, I've still lost all my credit
You're right. It doesn't help when your credit is eaten up by a subscription service. Feel free to send us a private message. We need your full name, DOB and mobile number. We'll see if we can help out 🙂
