How to Disable or Enable Premium SMS for Android

1.) From the home screen of your cell phone, navigate to your “Settings” section and select it (this will usually be a gear icon) and then scroll until you find “Application Manager”. Select your Application Manager.
2.) Next, select the Menu icon which consists of 3 tiny vertical dots (this is generally in the top right hand corner of this section).
3.) From the dropdown, select “Configure apps”. Then, scroll down the the Advanced section and find/select “Special access”.
4.) Now you will need to find and select the section “Premium SMS access”. You will be taken to a screen which shows a dialog saying something along the lines of “Premium SMS may cost you money and will add up to your carrier bills. If you enable permission for an app, you will be able to send premium SMS using that app.”
5.) Above this dialog should be your phone’s SMS messaging app that you are currently using to send and receive text messages. Click the area to display the options: Ask, Never allow, or Always allow,
6.) Depending on your specific needs, select the option that best suits your case. Typically, selecting “Ask” should be fine, but some users may prefer that their phone default to “Never allow” to ensure that they never deal with premium rate SMS charges again.
