Recently, Hotlink keep giving me A LOT OF advertisement or promotion by sending me a SMS which I consider as a spamming. It’s super annoying especially when I suddenly wake up hearing my phone ringing. U might say “just push the freaking DELETE button!!!” but i consider it’s wasting my time. The fact my phone ringing can reduce the battery life. Why don’t I keep my phone in silent mode? Vibrating also reduce my battery life. And also, keep sending me the SMS could lead to the congestion of their network. Doesn’t it make any sense?
So how to solve this problem? You could try sending them an Email. Here, I put my email that i sent to them. Thanks to scleng from Lowyatt forum because posting that email. Perhaps it could ends our nightmare!
Hope this will help!
