Anyone else getting this for the last month ?

There is no opt out option.

I thought unsolicited marketing was now illegal ?

I'm also getting spammed. I opted out with STOP to 30246. Got an SMS to say I have removed from the mailing list. Then a few hours later another one...

Luckily my phone can mute the notifications from that number, so it doesn't go off all the time, but every time I check my phone the icon shows a few unread SMSs. It really is around 2 per day... Enough to make me consider switching to CellC or something

This is one of the reason's holding me back from moving to MTN. While their prepaid data rates are superior to Vodacom, the SMS spam I have experienced on an MTN prepaid sim in my tablet is terrible! My voice line on Vodacom prepaid doesn't get any network spam!

They really need to sort that nonsense out!

Any idea on how to stop this? I've opted out before but it just keeps on coming.

This is exactly what I did...got the same SMS message from MTN that they would remove my number....next day back to the Spam again!

I would have lodged a threatening legal threat with them if I could only get their website to work!:confused:
