Who pays for your mobile phone spam?

I caught an item on the BBC Breakfast programme today about spam being sent to people’s mobile phones.

The main thrust was that it is the recipient who pays for the text messages, not the sender.

This reminds me of the item I posted some time ago about the way Vodafone were found to have charged me when they sent me messages on a phone which was never used and whose number was never disclosed to anybody. (It is simply an extra phone for emergencies.)

I must find time to visit the Vodafone shop in Swansea again, to view the pre-paid account to check if Vodafone (the only people who know the number apart from us) have sent me anything else at my cost… they could well have emptied my telephone account by now!
