Disable outgoing sms & enable incoming sms

 

Hello

If I have a Fido Tablet Data only plan (i.e. 3GB /$15), is it possible by FIDO System or by FIDO representative that they block all incoming calls, outgoing calls & outgoing sms, the things only allowed incoming SMS (which are free) & data transfer, I request for that type of feature to  FIDO representative & he  told me it is not possible for him, he can only able to do  either enable or disable  both incoming calls /incoming text in pair not individually. He told me both these feature are controlled by one command in there system so the only possible things are incoming calls/incoming  text allowed or not allowed. But in many online forums many people claims that they are able to get incoming sms even without outgoing sms allowed.

Or

Is there is any trick to do that? Like each provider/carrier having some message  center number in cell phone (hardware). If I put 00000000 value there the phone is not able to send any text as gateway number is wrong.

Help appreciated

Hey @id4vip!

 

Sorry to read you didn't get the proper information when you contacted us. We can add a block for outgoing text messages for you and you will still be able to receive text messages as well so no worries on that. Smiley Happy  However, if you want to block incoming calls, that feature also blocks incoming text messages.

 

Let us know if you want us to send you a PM to sort this out with  you.

Hi, I've requested keeping incoming text messages but blocking all calls and outgoing text services. But, it seems that incoming text has been blocked as well. Could you please PM me as well, then I update you my account number to help me reopen incoming text service? Thanks.
