Unblocking an accidental text block

Got strange message cane up when trying to send a competition entry text. Now it seems to have blocked because a drop down box appeared just as i went to press send and moved the send button. Now i can't send it at all, i just get a failed message instead. But i cant find out how to undo the option selected when the drop down box did it's magic trick then disappeared forever! Can anyone help?

Sounds like the Premium SMS Access menu came up.

The menu on my Android 9 phone is under Settings > Apps & Notifications > Special App Access > Premium Access SMS, but every phone maybe different. Try Googling or post back with phone model - someone may know for your model.

Re: Unblocking an accidental text block

thanks for replying. It is a Samsung S5 neo, running Android 6, so pretty ancient now. I never had this message appear before, so wondered if it was an update, or network (Virgin) add on?

Does this help, on your phone

  • Go to Settings – More – Application Manager –  All tab – Messaging
  • Scroll to the Permissions section then to the Send premium SMS setting.
  • You can change this setting to “Ask” or “Always allow”.
