    I have an IFTTT rule set up to send a STOP to 31505, stopping all WASP services. Happens each day at 08h00. Free SMS, might as well.

    Also, I have a rule set up to log all SMSes on a google spreadsheet. So I have proof that the SMSes came in...

    Was noticing that it seemed like my airtime was disappearing as well. Got this yesterday - which was odd, because besides never having heard of bitbop, I don't use my phone for games and certainly never opted in or agreed to any subscription service

    So replied with "Stop" to the number and then get this:

    Waiting to see over the next couple of days if my airtime remains constant or not - checked afterwards through the Vodacom ussd menus, and supposedly I'm not subscribing to any services at the moment

    So figured out where my airtime was disappearing to - apparently I "subscribed" to the Vodacom live gaming service - must of been when I hit my head and had that bout of amnesia. Unsubscribed and going to see what happens.
    Still don't know where / what "BitBop" is though

    wait Vodacom live billed on MTN?
    Some times the internet is so slow, it would be faster to just fly to Google's headquarters and ask them this $h1t in person.!

    No, my issue was all Vodacom related, and yes I do realize it was bit of a hijack - it was in the same scope of reference of disappearing airtime, so only half a hijack

    lol OK
    But yes WASPs are a nuisance and still no idea how they are allowed not to mentioned needed.

    WASP Subscription Services are blocked by default on Advinne SIMs. You also cannot voluntarily subscribe to a WASP services - they are blocked PERMANENTLY on Advinne.
