Unwanted SMS messages eating your mobile credit

Recommended Posts

I think you should look for more posts here

I did & stopped my wifes situation (the same ) from the info on here

It had nothing to do with the Provider or spam blocking

Probably you could have stopped it with the Dtac APP.

I had this on True postpaid. “Daily tips “ horoscopes etc I never clicked on them. Unblockable numbers. I think True is in on it, but they stopped it at a true shop

Had the same problem recently! I lost quite good money, before I went to a TrueMove shop, and this guy blocked the bad SMS with 137. Came into effect within 24 hours, no problem since.

Hmmm. My wife and I had AIS SIM cards here for 2.5 years. Neither of us has ever received one SMS ad. In the UAE I used to get them all the time, several every day, unblockable - Etisalat took money from the companies to make their messages unblockable by phone owners (but no charge per message).

Actually think your mobile data is on and consuming your balance, as mtls2005 said above. To turn off at the source...not just on your device...you need to enter the proper code. For AIS, it is *129*1#. Call DTAC for their "data off" code.

Then he won't be able to use any data services on his phone like email, internet, message apps (Line, Messenger, Viber, WhatsApp, WeChat etc), Skype etc

I am on the DTAC subscription for unlimited data (as I use my mobile as hub to access the web on my laptop).  So my credit is only affected when I make regular phonecalls or send SMS, which I very seldom do.  That's why I noticed that my credit was eaten slowly by these unwanted SMS's.  If you are not on an unlimited data subscription like I am, chances are high you will not notice that your credit goes down due to this scam.  That's why I posted the warning and how I finally got rid of it, as mentioned blocking the sender or using #137 did not help.
