    [COLOR="Purple"][FONT="Century Gothic]I've had ones like that before - normally some horoscope service or the like. All i did was text STOP to the same number - and surprisingly they did!

    Good luck sorting it though [/FONT][/COLOR]

    Usually you can stop them just by replying "STOP". Or, if you have lost quite a lot of airtime then call your network provider who may be able to help you out!

    As ducky said text STOP to each nunber. This should stop them

    It seems to be the law that if you text back "STOP" it will unsubscribe you from that 'service' and "STOP ALL" will unsubscribe you from all of the 'services' that company is 'offering' you.

    How to stop receiving marketing calls or messages.

    From time to time you may receive calls or text messages from different companies promoting or trying to sell you services.

    Sometimes the messages or calls are from Service Providers who you have previously bought things from (like mobile ringtones or wallpapers).
    If this is happening, you may have opted-in to receive marketing information as part of the sales process. If you would like to opt-out and stop receiving these calls or messages, just contact the Service Provider directly and asked to be removed from their marketing list.

    To find out who the Service Provider is and how to contact them, go to the ICSTIS website and enter their number.

    All marketing messages from Shortcode services must state that they are free to the receiver with the word ‘FreeMsg. You can stop future marketing by sending the word ‘STOP’ to that Shortcode number.

    Sometimes the messages or calls are from Service Providers and companies who you have NEVER previously bought things from.
    This is known as ‘unsolicited marketing’. You have every right to ask the businesses to stop contacting you. You may also find that you receive calls where the phone rings but on answering there is no one there. These ‘silent calls’ are often generated by automatic dialling equipment (which dial several numbers in one go but there are not enough people to deal with the calls when connected).

    If you are happy to receive telemarketing calls from some companies but not others, contact the companies who you do not wish to hear from and ask them to remove your details from their marketing lists.

    A helpful suggestion to reduce marketing calls. You can reduce or eliminate the number of calls you receive by registering your telephone number with the Telephone Preference Service (TPS). All companies are obliged to check the TPS list before making marketing calls. So if you continue to be called after registering your number with the TPS, you can complain.

    If you'd like to register your telephone number with the TPS or make a complaint, visit:

    Further information about the rules on marketing by telephone and SMS can be found on the website of the Information Commissioner’s Office. Visit

    thanks all so far so good they have stoped! use "Stop all" so lets see

    will leave u rep when i got time!

    I keep getting texts from 676825 today I tried number checker and it says its MSN I emailed them to stop as texting does not work (says no such number) I got an email reply about an hour ago saying there would be no more texts sent. In the last hour I have had another three texts!!!

    This thread is 4 years old so the information may not be 100%...

    Don't text STOP

    Some of these companies are just spamming numbers, They'll know you exist and send you more.
