Hi Rob,

No I am not receiving any of these. I wonder what sort of club they are referring to

Thanks for that Rob, but they have changed the number, or at least added to it. You now have to add 79 in front of the 5505(795505). God knows how I managed to get on their texting list but I am glad to be free of them now.

So I've tried sending a "Baja" text to both 795505, and 5505, neither of which has stopped these damn texts. I got a text back that says that I've been unsubscribed, but the texts keep coming. I haven't been able to find "Club Blinko's" website through google, all I get are forums like this one telling me how to stop the texts, but they all say the same thing (Send "BAJA" to 5505 or 795505). Anyone have any suggestions?

They suddenly become incredibly helpful if you tell them you are so fed up you are about to switch to Orange ...
