I use text messaging on my mobile quite sparingly, as is the case with voice calls as well, since my life has become devoted to babies. So it’s a real irritation that some stupid fucking Thai celebrity news service called INN-Dara has been spamming me with 15-20 messages every day for the past two weeks; it’s basically caused me to stop checking messages altogether.
I’m on DTAC, and all the other people I know receiving this spam are also on DTAC. However, calling DTAC to complain has proved unhelpful – they simply say that this is a “service” that will cut off automatically after 15 days if we don’t subscribe.
DTAC and INN-Dara, please take notice: NOBODY LIKES YOUR FUCKING SPAM! PLEASE CHOKE ON FETID RAT DROPPINGS AND DIE HORRIBLY, SLOWLY, AND PREFERABLY AWAY FROM THE VIEW OF WOMEN AND CHILDREN (and don’t let us know about your funeral by text message, either – nobody wants to go).
UPDATE: Of course, within seconds of publishing this post, I received a new message from INN-DARA. Aaaaaaaargh!! Karma’s a bitch, bitches!
UPDATE: I’ve found out how to unsubscribe from this irritating as hell service (a tested solution). From your DTAC phone, dial *74852 and press the call button. You should receive a final message that you have unsubscribed. If you are on another mobile carrier such as True Move or AIS, or are subscribed to another “service” perpetrated by the spammers at INN News, refer to the chart below (I’m keeping it on my server so as not to send these fuckers any traffic). What really gets to me is that DTAC won’t tell you how to unsubscribe; it’s quite obvious they are getting paid to allow this spam on their network.

Awesome mate! Thanks for this article. I’ve been getting the same shit for more than a month too, on Ture however.
Thanks again! Brilliant article
Thanks so much. I started to get this since 3 or 4 days on 1-2-call. Since this time more then 100 sms received. I never got so much shit spam on my phone before. You really helped me – otherwise I would have changed my number soon (tough 3 years in use now…)
Thank you cosmic Buddah, I got these messages about a year ago and had the same problems trying to unsubscribe, and they’ve been sending the messages again for the past week or so — Especially bad when work is often done by texting and these guys fill up my inbox with crap.
Thank you for publishing the number!
Awesome. I was in the process of getting a major homocidal resentment
I became a victim couple of days back and have been trawling the net for a solution. It seems the pricks have disabled the ‘unsubscribe’ number given here as when I dialled *74852 it won’t connect. I am with Dtac. Also tried *751212 with same result–failed to connect. If anyone knows an updated number to unsubscribe please post it here. Thanks!
I might be able to point you in the right direction:
There is a blurb on the bottom right corner of their website that says you can cancel their SMS/MMS message subscription by contacting 0-2730-2424 or at firstname.lastname@example.org
Their website: http://www.innnews.co.th
Please let us know how it works out for you.
Update–well it would seem my nice email to the F-wits have worked–no more friggin’ annoying SMSes from INN! and thanks to you Justin for the head up.
I’ve just found you and is waiting to see if the block works. A year ago dtac got rid of the spams for me. This time their centre said they would go within 24 hour but they are still flooding my phone. Is their a way to permanently stop such invasions?
Calling DTAC customer service and asking them to block SMS advertising (and Happy promotions) seems to work pretty well, but I suspect the main problem is when DTAC sells your number to 3rd party advertisers like these INN-DARA clowns. Please let us know if the solutions you found here work or not… Good luck!
