If you’re having trouble with Premium Rate Text Messages to/from short code numbers, this article will help you to check your phone’s permission settings. Please do note that depending on your carrier, you may need to take additional steps to activate premium rate SMS messages.

To further help our site’s users, we have compiled a list of contact information for most popular wireless carriers in the US.

Below, you will find customer service phone numbers, as well as the appropriate website contact pages for T Mobile, Verizon Wireless, ATT, Cricket Wireless, Sprint, U.S. Cellular, Metro PCS, and Ting.

Remember to use our phone number search at the top of this page to lookup suspicious phone numbers.



How to Disable or Enable Premium Rate 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 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 that 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.
