spam to the mobile phones

Post by x9200 » Tue, 24 Nov 2009 3:15 pm

I am receiving more and more unwanted advertisements to my mobile phone and it is slowly getting to the point I would like to do something about it. Some of such spammers simply ignore my requests to unsubscribe me from their lists. As far as I know spamming is illegal in Singapore since 2007 (or at least some regulations are in place). Any idea if there is anything legally enforceable, NOT on the civil law ground what can be done against such spammers?

Not legally enforceable. Besides, an interesting advice from somebody who exterminates spam on daily bases :)

Black list the numbers? Don't recall if you can do that on Symbian... or in Singtel, though.

Spamming is not illegal in SG, esp if the company pays your h/p company for your contacts. Sorry but true. It will be happening more often now that the cell companies have started realizingt he gold mine they have in contact details.
