Re: How can you disable receiving Broadcast Messages?

I don't have access to my phone at the moment so I'm going on memory alone.  On your homescreen follow Options>Advanced System Settings>Cell Broadcasting, or maybe you'll see Options>Device>Advanced System Settings>Cell Broadcasting.  I'm sorry I can't be more specific without a phone in front of me.

 

 

Let us know if that helps you.  :smileyhappy:

Re: How can you disable receiving Broadcast Messages?

I'm pretty sure one of those two paths will lead you to the Broadcast Messages section where you can disable them. If you've followed the instructions and are still getting messages, it might not be broadcast messages you're receiving, it might be an app that's pushing messages to your phone. Many "free" apps are nothing more than vehicles for advertising messages.


Cheers. :smileyhappy:

Umm I was talking about bbm, the contacts in your contact list that ever so always send broadcast messages to their contacts, like family members or friends. How do u stop revieving bbm braodcasts from people in your contact list?? Coz the solution above I tried and still able to recieve broadcasts from my contacts.

Re: How can you disable receiving Broadcast Messages?

OK, BBM broadcast messages are a different story altogether. You either accept them from your contacts or delete your contacts...end of story. :smileysad:


I hope that helps you. :smileyhappy:
