This number can allegedly solve all of your spam SMS issues in the UAE. You can block any shortcode / sender ID by sending b senderID to 7726. This works on etisalat and du (no, we don’t have any other provider here). Full list of commands supposedly available:
- b senderID – block senderID
- u senderID – unblock sender ID
- ball – block all, although I’m not sure if this includes SMS from regular numbers or just alphanumeric sender IDs (judging from the reports it seems reasonable to assume that nobody else does either)
- uall – unblock all
- get – fetch list of blocked shortcodes
- help – help
I hope this actually works.
