SMS Spam


Spam is following us everywhere, and you can deal with it to a certain degree online. But I have only expereinced SMS Spam in Kuwait, and it is driving me nuts. I’m getting SMSs from MTC, Banks, Financial Institutions, Clothing Stores , and a lot of random places for things that I never subscribed too and its really getting on my nerves. There has to be a clause which requires the telecom company to keep our information private.

Whats happening with the wireless providers is that they sell SMSs by the bulk to people paying for advertising and then they flood our phones with these stupid ads. I wish I could sue them for telemarketing crap and then they would learn from that, too bad going to court means a 5 year get your case heard and another 10 to get it resolved.
