How to stop "UNO TV" spam on cell phone

Recommended Posts

I get constant annoying "messages" from these clowns and there is no way to reply.  How to stop?

This is not a smart phone it is a dumb phone.  I have stopped other spam by replying with "baja" but there is no way to do that with this spammer.

Anyone getting this and have figured out how to block?

Thanks.

Great, it works. TelCel messages come far too often, 3 and 4 at a time, and often at ungodly hours.

SMS is messaging on your cell. Easiest is to go to one of the "spam" notifications, click the message envelope thing , type in the 2222 and in the message box write baja  and send it.

I hate them as well and blocked them.The block seems to expire every year or so and they suddenly start appearing again.

I have a friend who says she actually doesn't mind getting them- she uses them to improve on her Spanish reading skills, while alerting her to something in the news she might be interested in researching further.

I will get some help. I don't know how to "send to 2222".  I can only respond to the original message.

I used the BAJA message to 2222 several times and UNOTV continued to send me daily messages.  I finally got fed up and went into TELCEL and show them all my attempts to stop the message.  The clerk used "2252"  BAJA instead - it worked.  So if you continue to receive the UNOTV messages - try 2252 instead.

It may be that 2252 is a master number and will kill off other unwanted advertising messages as well.

You just go to where you create a new message on your phone, as if you were sending anyone a text message. Type in Baja, then send it to 2222, just like you would send a text message to someone's phone number.  It doesn't work to try to send it as a reply to the UNOTV text.

OK, thanks!

SMS stands for Short Message Service and an SMS & a Text Message are the same thing.
