Why do I keep being charged for unknown picture messages I don't even know how to send a picture message
How can I stop these messages
Sorry to hear your experiencing unknown picture message charges.
You've already posted this query here which I have answered for you.
if we could keep the conversation in one place to save any confusion.
The do's and don'ts. Keep the community welcoming for all. Follow the house rules
Thanks for your response.
You can't stop these messages if they're being sent from your phone. I can see on your other post here you sent a text to your friend.
This doesn't have to contain a picture. If you use emoticons then this it's possible you were charged for this. If you're not sure what an emoticon is please see here for an explanation.
If you want to make certain you're being charged correctly please contact the billing team on 789 from a Virgin Mobile handset of 0345 6000 789 from any other phone.
Hope this information helps. Please let me know if there's anything else I can help with.
The one thing I notice here, is that on Vaalhalla 1944 other post she says the texts are costing 15p each, if these texts were being classed as a MMS, the cost would be 40p each???
Good spot. I've edited the post to avoid confusion.
Its one of virginmedia's little cons I advise any one from using their TEXT MESSAGES and sign into facebook messages instead Its free
