Premium SMS Blocking Available On Your Phone From Today

Premium SMS Blocking Available On Your Phone From Today

Don’t want to risk costly premium SMS services ending up on your mobile? From today, ACMA’s previously announced plan to allow SMS blocking comes into effect.

If you don’t want premium SMS (and really, who would?) contact your phone company and ask for the option to be switched off. Yes, that will probably involve some painful hanging around on hold and yelling at so-called voice recognition systems, but it beats getting an unexpected phone bill for several thousand dollars.
