    SMS Spam (textmydeal) 16th Mar 17 at 11:44 PM
    I know there's guidance on MSE for dealing with spam SMS.

    Does anyone know anything about reporting specific companies to mobile networks though to have them blocked?

    I ordered a curry once and now get about 4 texts a day from textmydeal - I'd love to see them blocked as a spam provider.

    Why not de-register? That stops it instantly when placing the order you were opted in, but they do honour STOP requests.

    Sending the STOP message will cost "one standard rate text message". This charge is levied by your mobile phone provider, not by the service provider. Sending the message will not count towards inclusive allowances.
