  52. Ashish · June 1, 2011

    vodafone has put the Flash message services in my numbers by default without intimation to me. these messages are not for free of cost. customer will be charged with 3 Rs if clicks OK. These messages are very much disturbing. and to deactivate this service, the customers are being charged 3Rs unnecessarily. This kind of services should be stopped. Every company should respect the interest of the customers before burdening them with unnecessary default services. Please take necessary action against such service providers and save the customers. my number is 9713918090 plz stop all service message in this number……
