Depending on whether you have a text messaging plan and what type of plan it is, you may have to pay a per-message fee for some of the text messages you send and receive. The fees for incoming and outgoing text messages vary by sender, origin or destination.
As a Bell Mobility customer, your risk of receiving and having to pay for unsolicited text messages (or spam) is very low because Bell Mobility does not give out customers’ mobile numbers to any third-party sources unless we have prior consent from you. Furthermore, Bell Mobility employs rigorous spam filters.
In the event that a spam text message gets through to your Bell mobile phone, just forward the message to short code SPAM (7726) and Bell will automatically credit you $0.20 per spam message billed.
However, if you notice you've been charged for unsolicited messages, you can contact us or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will review and remove any related text messaging charges that are invalid.
Here are some ways to help yourself:
- To stop getting alerts, reply to the unwanted text message with the word STOP.
- Block the number from your phone.
