Is it me or is the rest of the nation getting plagued with unsolicited text advertising from Vodafone? They keep sending adverts to my phone. I never asked for them and I can’t stop them. Its only a little irritation but why should they be allowed to get away with it just because they provide my phone service?

You might have ticked the wrong box to opt in/out as we have a Vodafone contract and don’t get many (if any) ads. But you’re right they are extremely annoying – I’m one of those people that don’t mind direct mail but I can’t stand phone calls/texts. Always makes me feel guilty when I’m doing telephone voter ID!

Presumably you can register your mobile with the Telephone Preference Service, and they’d have to stop.

No, SMS messages are not covered by the TPS, but they shouldn’t send them unless you have ticked a box somewhere… though I think they have to let you opt-out if you ask.

As an ex sapper ’42-47 I am disgusted at you leaving MOD not over the incommpetance of the organisation, but over an internal Labour Party spat.
