100+ Vodafone Texts a Day

Message 1 of 4 (270 Views)

Hi there,

 

Since moving back to NZ and using my NZ sim card, I have received at least 100 texts a day from Vodafone saying 'Sorry u don't have enough credit to send a txt message...' even though my phone is all topped up and is on a prepaid plan? My plan works otherwise. Could you please help? It's getting very frustrating.

Hey there.

Chances are you have an iPhone? If so it will be trying to activate iMessage/Facetime which is does by sending an 'invisible' SMS to a UK number. So options might be to add a $1 or so to allow enough cents for a single international txt message to be sent; or turn off these services in your phone settings until a later point when you might want to use them.

Hi there,

 

Yes! I'm on an iphone. Happy to put $1 on, but I think Vodafone only does increments of $20... do you know how to turn off the services you mention? I've turned the notifications off Vodafone at least, so it doesn't buzz every two minutes

Here you go Smiley Happy

 

 

  • Go to Settings > Messages and turn off iMessage.
  • Go to Settings > FaceTime and turn off FaceTime
