Turning off Metro PCS voicemail isn’t as easy as it should be. In fact after much research I found out that technically you can’t turn it off, on Android or iPhone. BUT there is other abusive steps you can take.
First thing you should know is MetroPCS holds 45 voicemail messages as of 2019. Simply call yourself 45 times and leave blank voicemails. A simply hang up will do. I call this an abuse because technically it is. It’s METRO PCS that is forcing it’s customers to perform this abuse, simply so they don’t have to deal with a service that any other carrier in the world offers to shut off. So you are taking the storage space of METRO PCS and this costs THEM money. I get a smile out of finding ways to pay back companies that abuse their customers. Sooner or later METRO PCS will wise up and see they are losing money by customers doing this and offer the ability to turn it off for free. More so now that it’s called METRO PCS by T-Mobile.
Block one simple thing content type ibm852 and cp-850. There no more ever again. Who uses plain text to email these days anyways? LOL. Every client I have, every company I belong to all uses some other kind of format. After all they want you to click links to go to their web pages or whatever. These scammers just claim they magically took the stickers off all my devices and recorded me doing something retarded in front of my computer, threaten that they are going to send it to all my friends unless I send them tons of bitcoins.
I’m not sure when the last time you checked out your online email account but Microsoft added a new Subscriptions section. In this section you will see all kinds of things you never ever signed up for, let alone subscribed too. Microsoft has seen fit to add all kinds of spam email newsletters permissions there. Some you can easily remove these by going here:
Sadly you have to click remove one by one. Some load a page to type your email address into, and some email the spammer directly. I took the chance on several accounts I tinker with. Many went to fake email addresses and bounced back, several went to dead websites and others went to domains I closed by using SpamCop doing auto reports.
Once you have taken care of that list I have a suggestion I’ve taken care of in all my accounts. Create a rule with your username. Your username is what is before the @ symbol of your email address. So example YOURNAME@_______.com The reason you are creating this rule is because spammers use it. Create a rule, I named mine “Subject spam” Add condition- Subject Includes. I put my username in it, and a few others I was being targeted with. Add action – select delete UNLESS you are worried, then mark it as junk. Be sure to select Save. Taking action on these two things I believe you will find your online email box a lot more inviting. As Microsoft will no longer send junk to your inbox as you are no longer “subscribed”. Also some of the removal links claim in 7 to 10 days you will be removed. Amazingly enough this has completely worked. I guess when spammers know they aren’t going to earn anything off you, what’s the point?
