Better for unsubs, to unsub now you have to sms 932423523235 and not 31223The 14-digit limit breaks many services who use tagged numbers; the standard tagging length is 5 digits. WASPA members have appealed and this is likely to hold these regs up for a long time.
+1This makes sense if they can make it happen..
I will instantly block all 090 and 096-098 numbers.... no more of those fekking irritating machine recorded advertising calls hopefully.
The tagged numbers are almost always used for replies, so you don't type them in. Us and our enterprise customers use them for things like support and interactive systems so a reply can be routed to the right customer/service. SMSes are still very useful when not used for spam. They're the only easy to integrate service with 100% accountability and traceability.Better for unsubs, to unsub now you have to sms 932423523235 and not 31223
ICASA thought they were doing something useful, but it's really a useless thing that will benefit nobody, and they've done it wrong anyway.Can someone translate this gobeldygook into english please
I wish more banks would go the USSD route like Nedbank...ICASA though they were doing something useful, but it's really a useless thing that will benefit nobody, and they've done it wrong anyway.
Most people can't just go and block all numbers originating from automated systems, because of things like bank OTPs, alarm company notifications, etc.
100%. The most annoying is when a security company uses Private numbers - mine does - when you're out and you get a Private call you HAVE to answer it in case it happens to be them. Idiots.Next the they must abolish the "Private" numbers, force everyone to reveal their identity. Even if they musk it, it will still do. I want to block all these nonsensical pursuers.
Yeah, nice when it works - but there are lots of issues on many handsets with USSD push. Also, USSD push doesn't work on CellC or Telkom Mobile yet. They don't support LBS (location lookup) either. I think they're running their backoffice systems on Commodore 64's.I wish more banks would go the USSD route like Nedbank...
Push USSD ties up a session on the SS7 network, especially if you need to reply to it. And too easy to dismiss by accident IMO. I have had way too many "touch the screen while picking my phone up" incidents, and unlike an SMS you can't just retrieve the USSD message.I wish more banks would go the USSD route like Nedbank...
