Just saw this thread  on the 2 Degrees forum.
 
It is funny - I get the same type of crap on the Vodafone network. After trying the usual stuff (reply back with UNSUBSCRIBE or STOP) and ringing the customer service and not getting anywhere, I just put up with it - especially the number keeps changing too. But I wonder how many others have the same issue.

My latest text is from 92164 / 92139. 

The last message from 92164 (a few mins ago) says "... I am confident we can do the business against the Broncos on Sunday. We have a few injuries but I think that breeds strength   in the rest of the squad...".

What about you? Do you get annoying unsolicited texts from your telco? And you ring the customer service - and they give you no solution - and instead accuse you of subscribing to it in the first place!   [No I did NOT subscribe to anything]

If you have a Vodafone live handset on the main page down the bottom " My Vodafone " then " My Subscriptions " is anything in there?

PM me your Vodafone mobile number and Vodafone PIN and I will see stop them

John, I am going to sound like an idiot - but how do I go to Vodafone Live from my E72? [I never had to up to now].

I got a Vodafone Live button - which takes me to the corporate web site

I went to My Vodafone from my phone Web Browser - and there are nothing there for My Subscription.

I text LIVE to 5483 like it told me in the above site - and then clicked on the text message I got back wioth a link in the reply - but the Browser won't load that page.

You are getting directed off to the corporate site www.vodafone.com as you are using the internet APN to connect

Use the WAP access VFNZ Gateway with APN live.vodafone.com

Ok - I used the WAP Access point - and now I can access it:

Clicking on My subscriptions says:

"! - Ooops. You don't have any active subscriptions. You can subscribe to heaps of different blah blah blah ....
