    Default Prevent MMS Notifications

    Hi all,

    I am desperately trying to find a way of stopping MMS Notifications mushrooming in my SMS Inbox. I have contacted my provider - China Mobile (M-Zone) here in Beijing, but they say, its nothing they can do. I don;t get any other spam SMS, but about 10 MMS notification SMS per day, which is starting to get really annoying.

    Naturally I can just delete the notification (and I normally do this), as they are Notifications for MMS ads, sent to my number.
    Had a bit of a look, but could not find any app that would work behind the scene and just zap these...

    If anyone has any other suggestions, do let me know.
    Thanks

    What about message - option - setting - MMS - report - no ?

    thanks, but I dont think it will make a difference, as I am getting Notifications of MMS awaiting collection, for MMS that are sent to my No. I actually never use MMS at all. Right now my settings are:

    Image Size: small
    MMS Creation mode: guided
    Access Point in use: MMS set by CCM (China Mobile)
    Multimedia retrieval: off
    Allow Anonymous msgs: No
    Retrieve Adverts: No
    Receive Reports: No
    Deny Report sending: Yes
    Message Validity: 1hr

    if anyone else has any ideas... please let me know

    I think it's operator issue. If you replace it with another SIM, there's no issue, right?

    yes, other SIM is not getting me this problem. I understand this much. But since my operator has no interest in stopping this unwanted MMS spam, I need to figure out another way of not getting these MMS Notifications.

    I believe there is a small app that can filter incoming SMS, but its not free (when I tried it some months ago), and I cannot find it any longer

    Perhaps changing the card with the same number will fix it. But you have to go to your operator service place.

    Default Re: Prevent MMS Notifications

    looks like I have inadvertably fixed it... no MMS Notification all day....phew! Here is what may have done it:

    Multimedia retrieval: off

    previously I have had the setting as below. But changing this one item, seems to have made a difference (probably celebrating too early, but anyhow...)

    Image Size: small
    MMS Creation mode: guided
    Access Point in use: MMS set by CCM (China Mobile)
    Multimedia retrieval: manual
    Allow Anonymous msgs: No
    Retrieve Adverts: No
    Receive Reports: No
    Deny Report sending: Yes
    Message Validity: 1hr

    if anyone else has any ideas... please let me know

    Shouldn't that disable MMS completely then (receiving)?

    Really hope it does! never use it, and I know no-one else amongst in my circle of friends and colleagues that does! On top of that they charge an arm and a leg for MMS here (compared to SMS).

    Well, second day, and nothing... looks like this may have fixed it!!
