[UPDATE] Can I stop the Premium Text Charges but not the short codes?


Re: [UPDATE] Can I stop the Premium Text Charges but not the short codes?

A Premium Text Messaging keyword is a unique string of text that helps you interact with ashort code or Premium Text Messaging service.

For example: Text HELP to 466453 (Google).

In this example, HELP is the keyword and 466453 is the short code.

Texting Google is a Premium Text Message - FREE
