Paid telephone services, how to deactivate them with an SMS (but on InformaticsKings they already are)

InformaticsKings disables premium services by default

Have you ever surfed on your mobile phone and, suddenly, like a bolt from the blue, a message arrives in which they thank you for subscribing to a subscription to a paid service





Just accidentally touch a banner or a sensitive point on the page and you immediately find yourself with an immediate charge of several euros (which are removed from the residual credit on the SIM) and a service (horoscope, games, weather etc.) that does not exist. we never dreamed of subscribing.

Well, know that theAGCOM (the'Authority for Guarantees in Telecommunications) has recently introduced the possibility of canceling these services simply by sending an SMS with text CANCEL to be sent to the number indicated in the message received.

The effect will be that of 1) automatically deactivating the service and 2) having the reimbursement of the residual credit fraudulently subtracted, within 24 hours of the request. The downside, unfortunately, is that you have to act within six hours after receiving the message.

Alternatively you can call (this service has already existed for some time) the toll-free number set up by AGCOM itself (800442299), which allows, 24 hours a day and 24 days a week, to check whether or not premium services are active on your phone number and, if necessary, disable them.

Here, too, the right to reconsider can be exercised within six hours of receiving the message, because  AGCOM he considers it an appropriate period to evaluate "the actual willingness to purchase".

The Authority distinguishes between servizi premium one shot e by subscription: the latter can also be deactivated outside the cooling-off period, always by calling the toll-free number or by contacting the call center of your telephone company.


A this address you can find more information.    


If, on the other hand, you want to be absolutely sure that no paid service is activated on your number, not even by mistake or without your knowledge, you can use the so-called "SMS barring". This is a free service offered by all mobile phone operators: simply call the call center (or follow other methods that vary from operator to operator) and ask for the deactivation and preventive blocking of all paid services ( also called "YOU GO", value-added services).


With InformaticsKings Mobile, however, you can be absolutely reassured, because the subscription services are disabled by default. Therefore, no call to the call center or any configuration of your profile is required.
