Unwanted Image Messages On My Mobile Phone

I have started getting unwanted messages from Google and an American company called Peel Remote on my phone. I seem to get at least two every hour.

If they don’t stop, my mobile phone usage will go to emergency only and I’ll switch it on once a week or so!

I am allergic to two things; gluten and advertising!

I also have started getting a TV remote for my Samsung television on the phone. That is really wierd as the TV hasn’t been unpacked from its box and all my other televisions are old Sonys.

  1. You can block the numbers – don’t know what phone u have. Mine I open the message, click on the name at the top and it gives me the option to add number to phone or to add to existing contact, or to black the number.

    • You can’t do that to these messages. The only way to stop them is to pay Danegeld. The television is going back to John Lewis. This company Peel Remote need a good going over by a yard-dog lawyer!

  2. Yes, Peel Remote and some of the other bundled apps are a real pain. You probably won’t be able to uninstall Peel Remote, but you *should* be able to disable it. I can, on my Samsung smartphone running Android. To do this, go to the Application Manager in Settings, find Peel Remote and press ‘Disable’.
