Hi Domc1888,

premium texts are a subscription based service, providing some sort of content such as news, games, competitions etc.

You will at some point have needed to sign up (perhaps you did so accidentally I.E not ticking a box or something).

As you have deleted the text, you may still find the number by checking your account on line or looking on your bill.

Once you have this you may be able to Google it to find the provider or post the number on this forum & one of the team may be able to help.

I have the same problem with another bunch of bandits. Phoned the helpline who advised me what to text them to stop this but still they come. I think the only way is to change my phone number, despite all the inconvenience. Otherwise it will be £12.00 per month for ever!

Hi Domc1888,


Thanks for coming back to us Smiley Happy


I've looked into this for you and I've found that you can stop your premium texts by messaging STOP to 87066.


Give this a go and let me know how you get on.


Thanks,

Re: Freemsg premium text from Mintedmobi HOW DO I STOP

Hi Domc1888

have you tried STOP ALL

Virgin wouldn't be able to stop these for you im afraid.

Do you know the 6 digit short code or the 700##### number that texts you?
Have I answered your question today? Mark the question as resolved if so!

Mark as helpful answer if this has helped you to show other members the resolution

Hi,

Unfortunately Virgin aren't able to block these premium texts for you.

You say you've tried "STOP", try texting back “STOP ALL” & see if that works.

If it doesn’t work you can complain to PhonePayPlus - 0300 30 300 20
They are the UK regulator for premium rate SMS.
