Text Spam


Distinguished Member
I've had my mobile number for years and haven't really suffered from much spam until recently. In February, I ordered a Taxi and since then I have received more Spam than I have ever done over the years.

I reckon the Taxi ordering has something to do with it, not only do I get a lot of Taxi related text messages, I'm starting to get a lot of local to me service spams too.

I reckon my number got put on a list as soon as I ordered this taxi. Anyone else had this sort of thing? How do I get off whatever list I'm on?

For my home phone number I'm on the TPS service which works well. But my mobile number now appears rife for Text spam, any advice welcome.

Cheers :smashin:

141 before you dial the number, use it.
