I would contact your network provider as all text messages from jobcentre/dwp are free
I can't help with this one but it does say something about the country we live in today when someone feels the need to explain their unemployment situation.
Agree with Caroline_1993, there is no way you are being charged for these texts, have you checked that you haven't signed up to something else by mistake that is charging you.

It's free to receive text messages - speak to Vodafone.
Palmer, you can 'opt out' on your T's and C's. Have a look, not too difficult to find.
I remember a few years back I got a text 3 weeks after my appointment to remind me of it! They were not to helpful when from that day forward I insisted on a hand written (and signed) appointment card for the next visit to prevent any problems. Iirc they were free, allbeit late.
