If you are using Safaricom, you may have come the premium rate SMS services that can be very useful and sometimes very annoying. They can be useful since some of them provide you with valuable information and can be annoying as some of them send you numerous text messages that eat up your airtime.

“Safaricom has partnerships with licensed Premium Rate Service providers whose core business is to run services and promotions on short codes leased to them by Safaricom”- Safaricom.

If you are one of those annoyed by Safaricom’s premium rate SMS services, there is a way to unsubscribe for such services. This is helpful as some of the companies offering such service do not offer users a straightforward way to do this.
