Hi lads,

Workmate and I have just had SMS messages from shortcode 219, workmate got his yesterday (on telstra mobile) saying his TC data had not been setup.. (but has)

I got one today addressed to presumably the previous number owner (have had it 4-5 years now if not more) saying <name> is much missed at proudmouth.. presumably a dentist.

Both from shortcode 219. Can't seem to find an opt out response for them, and would rather not reply if its going to produce an increase in marketing.

Are they likely to be the same provider supplying the adverts or will the 219 on telstra phone be different to 219 on VF network. And does anyone know the opt out code :)

Txt2Get website has more information on what it is. Is listed in Vodafone's Premium Text list.

Should adhere to "STOP" command.

I had already investigated via the well publicised listings (cheers vf!), hence knowing who the shortcode belonged to :)

Rodger that John. Just needed some verification the stop was part of their opt-out service.

Wasn't 100% given they are good at hiding any mention of an opt-out on their main site other than how their advertising relies on opt-in more so. And appear to resell to agents to advertise the heck out of things.

They're required to support STOP as a way of opting out. Otherwise, I imagine Vodafone would be very interested in having some discussions with them...
