Every once in a while, I get an annoying interruption from my phone. An SMS would popup on the screen and read something like, “Get the latest ringtones, pictures, and daily clips for just 150 fils! Reply with G”. Sound familiar? Well I’ve been getting a lot of that recently:
“Want to read your funny horoscope? Reply with H and have a laugh.”
These persistent messages always try to lure me into their pathetic money-making business schemes:
“Mercedes Benz is waiting for you at Marina Mall! Send R to..”
Ugh! I’ve just about had it with those annoying spammers! Do they expect me to sit and delete these SMS’ every 30 minutes?
“Play Aladdin to win a Mini Cooper…”
Obviously, I had to do something about it because it’s just getting absurd and I’m not tolerating it. So called MTC and ask if there was a way to put and end to all those adverts and, to my delight, there was!
“We’ll inform our technicians and it’ll take around 9 days before the adverts stop.”, said the agent. And that’s all it took! No more annoyances! Goodbye ridiculous, anonymous, commercials! From now on I’ll only receive legitimate SMS on my phone.
