Spam charges out

Date: August 09, 2008

OTTAWA -- Industry Minister Jim Prentice says Bell Mobility and Telus Mobility have assured him that any customers charged for text message spam will be able to have the charges removed from their bills.

Bell Mobility and Telus Mobility announced last month that they will charge cellphone customers not covered by calling plans 15 cents for each incoming text message. Rogers Wireless does not charge for incoming text messages. Prentice says he met with chief executives of both companies to express his "serious concerns" with the fact the plans could charge for unsolicited, unwanted spam."I would encourage consumers dissatisfied with existing plans to seek alternatives," Prentice said in a release.
