I keep getting SMS/MMS messages from a 4735 number.
I posted this comment as a reply, in another message about 4735, but this should be it's own subject.
I've been getting relentless, annoying, repeated SMS messages from the number: 4735.
It now looks like this might be a FIDO number!! I have not been able to reach anyone at Fido.
I am get 5 or 6 - sometimes more - of these SPAM messages from 4735 EVERY DAY!!
I have added 4735 to my Blacklist on the phone but the SMS messages are still getting thru.
The phone beeps, and I delete the thing, because it is an MMS packet, with a 90Kb file attached.
I do NOT have any DATA capability on my phone. That's the way I want it. Data is disabled.
But some system is ***CONSTANTLY*** trying to dump this 90kb of SPAM on my phone.
I am a Fido customer, in Canada.
I had thought this stupid 4735 SMS was some hackerguy, who had figured out how to bypass the
Android Blacklist feature of my phone. But in researching this - I discover 4735 IS FROM FIDO !
This message has been coming almost every hour today. I want this to stop.
I have tried to call FIDO directly via 611, but all I get is MENU LIST of SELF-SERVE options.
And not surprisingly, none of the self-serve options allow me to fix or stop this.
was trying to drop a toxic exfiltration payload on my phone.
But NO - it seem it is my own provider !!
I need Fido to STOP sending adverts out on this 4735. My Huawei phone - which I got from Fido,
cannot seem to process the 4735 (4-digit) SMS number in my Harassment Filter Blacklist.
Putting the 4735 number in the Messages Blacklist has NO EFFECT. I keep getting the
4735 messages. And now I learn it is a junk advert!
You cannot imaging how annoying and frustrating this has been. Fido people are not thinking.
If I keep getting these 4735 SPAM-junk repeat messages (I have had maybe 200 or 300 in the
last two weeks), I will next write a formal letter to the CRTC, and my MP, and explain that
FIDO/Rogers seems to be a company run by a bunch of scammers, and the Rogers-Fido thing
should maybe be broken up, and the spectrum they are using should be re-allocated.
Fido MUST NOT SPAM-bomb its customers like this.
This is just insane.
I had honestly assumed it was some hackerbot or malware - complete with a 90kb exfiltration
program - that was repeatedly and relentlessly trying to attack me. Turns out it is an advert.
Now that I have determined it is actually MY OWN CARRIER harassing me. This is not good.
We need a solution. This is NOT how the wireless technology model is supposed to be operated.
