Removal of WASP services
Cell C Using the USSD string *133*1# subscribers can block all existing and future content billing. MTN MTN also offers a USSD string (*141*5#) to manage premium content subscriptions, but unlike Cell C’s it doesn’t block all future subscriptions. Instead, users select which services to unsubscribe from. Telkom Mobile When asked about its self-service options for WASP subscriptions, Telkom Mobile said it does not offer an option for WASPs to charge for subscription services. The operator previously told MyBroadband that it already has a double opt-in system in place, but has since said that it will be making an announcement involving its recently launched Event Billing soon. Vodacom Vodacom users can unsubcribe from all WASP services by sending “STOP ALL” to 30333. Should you be subscribed to WASP services, you should receive the response “Your Vodacom request to delete all WASP service has been logged”. According to Vodacom, you should then receive messages of the format, “You have been unsubscribed from ‘SERVICE’ with effect from ‘DATE’”. If you are not currently subscribed to any services you should receive the somewhat confusing response, “Your Vodacom request to delete all WASP services has been unsuccessful, Please call Vodacom Customer Care on 082111”. Vodacom said that it is working on changing this message to say that you are currently not subscribed to any WASP services.
To block all existing content billing on:
– Cell C, dial *133*1#
– Vodacom, SMS “STOP ALL” to 30333. If you receive a message saying it was unsuccessful, you weren’t subscribed to anything
– MTN, dial *141*5# to view and unsubscribe.
