Re: Unwanted texts selling apps

Uninstall that application which is pushing those messages to you, it was likely some free application you downloaded.

Re: Unwanted texts selling apps

And for goodness sake, don't EVER purchase anything through one of those ads.  As soon as ONE person purchases ONE app through that method, that type of marketing will continue because it's been shown to work.

 

DO NOT HELP SPAMMERS, EVEN IF IT'S AN APP YOU DESPERATELY WANT!!!

 

 

I hope that helps you.  Smiley Happy

Re: Unwanted texts selling apps

Hi thanks for your answers, much apreciated.  The app I bought was from Blackberry App world for a blackberry and the texts I keep getting are from PACE MobiTech.  I have uninstalled the app i bought, but the texts keep on coming!

Any ideas?

Yes. As I said it was likely not the paid app but some free app you've downloaded.
