A while ago I started getting text updates from stuff regarding breaking news. Although I didn't actually subscribe to them I didn't mind getting them.

I have just found out I get charged $0.22 for each of them (now I do mind getting them if I am being charged to receive them) This seems a bit odd especially since I can't recall asking for them. The network details on the bill say PXT to 'MMS Service, 92023'.

Called Vodafone,  CSR says he has no idea who MMS Service, 92023 is but if i reply saying "stop" they (whoever they are - he didn't know either) should stop sending me these txts.

It seems a bit weird that I should just start receiving these - anyone else get them?

Maybe the CSR was new - turns out it is a Vodafone update (unless VF is not Vodafone). After I texted stop to number received message - Free frm VF: National News Updates was successfully unsubscrived.

This now raises the question why was I being charged for free news updates?

I had the same thing. Don't know how I got subscribed to them. Only had a couple before I phoned up to find out how to stop them.
