So I gots me s’more spam to mah mobile. o.O

Thankfully, it turns out that there is some proper recourse. Thanks to Stefano for pointing me in the right direction. (original post ovdje)

WASPA (or Wireless Application Service Providers’ Association) is theIndustry Bodyfor Wireless Service Providers in SA. They have a complaints page where you get to submit all the juicy details about how a WASPA (or WASP) has breached the WASPA Code of Conduct.

Perhaps the provider in question gets featured on the complaint reports pagewhere everyone will see how much they’ve been fined along with a full report of the complaint. This includes WASPA’s investigation and a summary of the communications with the Service Provider concerning the matter. Važnije, its all publicly accessible.

I just wish people actually KNEW about this thing though. I certainly didn’t know that a WASP isn’t just the name of a (usually) flying insect? Yeahturns out some wasps don’t have wings and are mistaken za antsgo figure.

Back to the topic at hand: Spread the word! And lodge your complaints!

I don’t receive much spam to my mobile phone. I have received random sms’s on occasion aboutspecialoffers and so forth. Someone also once sms’don my behalfto one of those late-night e-tv specials adverts. Every month I receive an enticing message informing me about what I’m missing out on. I wonder though, is there a no-send list I can add myself to at MTN, Vodacom, or Cell-C?

Može li bilo stanični popis davatelja sve tvrtke koje su vam poslane SMS-a putem Bulk SMS sustava u posljednjih mjesec dana, na primjer? I mogu reći moj mobilni provider da to može SPAM bez slanja SMS koštaju mi ​​R7.50 s riječi “STOP”? [Uredi… Ispada ovaj SMS trebao koje se naplaćuju po najnižoj mogućoj brzini. Hvala, Tumbleweed]

posljednje, Čuo sam od tih usluga, gdje ćete platiti za primanje sadržaja neprestano. Neprestano u da je njegova usluga, gdje oni pretpostavljaju ih želite naplatiti R5 svaki dan da vam poslati nešto. Moja sestra je imala problem u kojem ona nikada nije emitiranja. Bilo je to zato što joj je R20 tjedni džeparac bi se progutati cijeli sljedeći dan jedan od njih “usluge” koji joj je poslao smiješnu sliku i oduzimaju R10. She could have downloaded the same or similar picture using her computer for about 5c using Google'S image search and I’d have sized and cropped it to fit her phone’s screen perfectly with no visible distortion or aliasing. At the same time, they claim copyright on the content which is LAME. I’ll bet they’re stealing the pictures from the Internet themselves anyway.

In the end it was easier for her to get a new prepaid number. I just hope that they’re not still going to send more content to whoever gets her old number after its recycled. 😮
