My SMS Problem



I was faced with an annoying situation that seems to be resolved now so I am sharing my experience in case it helps someone else with similar. Basically I was being bombarded with unwanted SMS from a third party service at a rate of 1 a day. For a while I simply ignored it until I decided to take action. The first thing I did was contact my service provider's online support. Online support suggested I call the 800 number from the SMS and ask to be unsubscribed. I did and a lady answered and said I would be unsubscribed within a day. 2 days later and I didn't get an SMS for that day. But the texts kept coming after that. At the same time I was tweeting with my service provider's twitter handle which suggested I reply to the SMS with STOP. That I did and for a few days now, no botheration. If this helped you or you experienced similar, share with us in the comments below.
