How do I stop getting charged for receiving texts?

What are Premium Texts?

Premium texts (or Premium SMS) are a paid service that you subscribe to so you can receive regular updates or messages to your phone. For example, you might receive:

  • game downloads
  • ringtones
  • sports results

How do I stop receiving these texts?

The quickest way is to reply to the premium text message with the word STOP. This should unsubscribe you from the service. If you're not sure who exactly is sending you the premium texts, you can do a short code search on ComReg's website. As long as you have the 5 digit number (53XXX) you can find out the service provider name and contact details. The ComReg Phonesmart website also gives more details on how to unsubscribe from a premium service.

What about text alerts?

Text alerts are a similar type of subscription text service that Vodafone offers. Vodafone has a wide range of text alerts you can subscribe to. For a complete list and to subscribe or unsubscribe with ease, register with My Vodafone and update your contact options. You can subscribe and unsubscribe to text alerts within My Vodafone.
