    Yeah, but when you're tech support you need to be reachable...and switching it back on requires me to fiddle with a screwdriver.

    i'm part of a pilot group 'wisekids' which promotes safety for young kids using mobiles and the internet, there is a law where if u reply to the company sending you the messages with just ''stop'' they do have to stop. I havent tried it, but its what we reccomend, let me know if it works

    That'd be a waste of credit, and simply flood me with more messages. Theyre coming from an "unknown" number ...theyre those "TEXT 84501 for.." style things.
