If you are getting SPAM sms you may like this!

  I've been having a lot of fun doing this all week I must confess. I've reported them all! Evil . I'm sick and tired of getting PPI,Casino,etc... sms all the time!

 

Mobile users who receive SPAM messages (PPI, Accident Claims etc) can report the text messages to 7726.

 

Information from all mobile operators is collated and O2 can see which of our customers are being reported as being the originator of SPAM messages.

Sending SPAM messages is against O2’s terms and conditions 6.3 (e) and 8.1:
6.3 You must not use or permit anyone else to use the Service: (e) to persistently send automated unsolicited communications (including SMS spam).
8.1 As well as any other rights we have, we can end the Agreement and/or a Related Agreement at any time, with immediate effect if: (d) you're in breach of paragraphs 6.3 (a)-(e) or you persistently behave in a way that would allow us to bar your SIM Card in accordance with paragraph 7 of this Agreement.

 

We’re sending letters to customers who have been reported as sending SPAM giving them 30 days’ notice of disconnection.

 

What does this mean ?
Customers who have been identified as sending SPAM messages will be given 30 days’ notice of disconnection. They will then, after the 30 days, be disconnected and termination fees will be applied as appropriate.

I would imagine so @perksie, it makes sense. Question is , like @MI5 said with all the latest computer technology and some of these companies being based abroad, can they really take any action?

The problem is that the process is slow and not enough is being done. Far too many of these companies get away with it for far too long and the fines are a drop in the ocean compared to the money they make.
