    I just got a MMS message from Singlepoint today on my 7610with a picture of
    a skier in it and some sales crap about using Video messaging (basically it
    was sales SPAM).

    As luck would have it, as it arrived I happened to have my GPRS log open and
    noticed that it went up as the message arrived.

    Fine, no problem I thought, MMS messages use GPRS thats logical. Then I
    thought, hang on, that means when SinglePoint spam me, I have to pay for it
    !!!! To unsubscribe to the things I don't want that I have to pay for - yes
    you guess it , I have to MMS them - and pay for that too.

    Being a bit hacked off at this as I have had several of these from
    Singlepoint recently I called them.

    a) They refused to accept the messages were from single point initially.
    b) They refused to accept that I would have to pay for the message even
    though my GPRS counter went up.

    After patiently explaining to them several times they realised my point and
    agreed to refund my GPRS bill for this month which I think was very
    reasonable. They also said the SPAM would stop. When I went on to explain
    that there would be lots of people out there who would be paying SinglePoint
    to get Spammed (and the more SPAM they send the more money they make) they
    went back to insisting that I didn't have to pay for the SPAM and then hung
    up on me rather rudely.

    BEWARE MMS SPAM !!!!

    This is not a problem in Australia because we don't pay for incoming
    calls, SMS or MMS. We only pay for out going calls and messages.

    I had a similar problem about two or three years ago. Singlepoint kept
    sending me a text about some service or other that I didn't want with the
    words.

    "to unsubscribe reply to this txt with 'no' "

    or something like that, at the time i thought 10p fair enough i'll just send
    the txt and be done with it. But i continued to get them every week for
    about a month. Which i didn't reply to.

    then at the end of the month when i got my bill it said that i had
    subscribed to one of there "news headline" txt services (about 3 a month).
    when i phoned to complain they told me that they had a registered txt from
    me on such an such a date.

    It took me about a week phoning EVERY day to sort it out, then i just
    cancelled my deal with them, cancelled the DD first. And I stopped using the
    phone.

    When about 3 weeks later I got a letter and then a phone call from them. I
    told them that i felt they had breached the contract that we had and put the
    phone down on them, after another couple of days they rang again and I told
    them i would be going into the shop to complain to Phones 4U, get this the
    guy laughed and put the phone down on me.

    Singlepoint are a load of cheating scumbags who make a fortune because most
    people probably don't read what they pay for on their bill. I urge everyone
    to check, and if its singlepoint and your getting ripped off. COMPLAIN.

    Neither do we pay for incoming text, sms, calls, mms except when roaming
    (which I gues you would pay for also?)
