The only Telcel text messages that I get are the occasional "call me" message, maybe twice per year. I had already gone to the Telcel office and asked them to stop all advertisements. This was maybe 6 years ago,and I don't remember what they did, but the only ads I get now are the very occasional one from Telcel..

Oh I take that back I would sometimes let someone use my phone at the office where I used to volunteer in Ajijic. A friend did something as a joke, and I began to get two short messages a week from Playboy wanting me to phone some number for some expensive service. I was up north for 6 weeks. And every weekend I would get two of these messages. I don't remember what I was charged for receiving these ads (free in Mexico) but in the US I was charged something, but not much. When I returned I again went to the Telcel office, and the employees were able to do something while using my cell to stop these too.
