i really have no idea how i got linked in to these thieves,but have now tried sending a message to their customer services asking to unsubscribe. Unfortunately what they are doing is 'legal',but i am sure that it would be easy to pass legislation to outlaw them and similar companies

Well it looks as though i have finally got rid of blinko by having their texts blocked,but met another guy today who is getting texts from them and thought that by deleting them without opening he would not be charged-wrong! they send them,you get them and you pay,whether you open them or not!!

I looked at some of the complaints about them and most people have no idea, but I have seen some references to ring tones (politonos) and those test your intelligence games that pop up sometimes on Yahoo, Facebook etc. Their page is certainly full of that kind of stuff.
I've also seen complaints from the UK, Italy...
But apparently, it tells you how to unsubscribe on the FAQ on their site, and it is, or was, different depending on what phone company you use
