Had a couple of text based notifications recently on my 2degree's mobile that have come from an ALPHA source. These were for events I'm attending, but I don't want the text based reminders, and I never ticked a box to say I wanted to be notified by text in the first place.

So how can I find out the originating service provider of the text message so that I can get these messages blocked.




Generally known online as OpenMedia, now working for Red Hat New Zealand as a Solution Architect for all things Linux, Virtual and of course Cloud. Still playing with MythTV and digital media on the side.

We don't allow premium partners to send MT messages with alphanumeric source addresses. Apart from anything else a limitation in the way the IN handles them internally means we can't bill for them properly.

So, any that you ARE receiving are not being delivered through a channel we have control over. They'll be coming in via international SS7. PM me your number and we'll see if we can track it down, but no promises - we might not be able to block the foreign SMSC without too much collateral damage.
