It seems that calls were made no more than usual,the account was replenished recently, but the money on the phone is rapidly ending. Common situation? This can mean only one thing: a mobile operator, without the subscriber's knowledge, connected him with some paid services that he does not need. Often this happens at the stage of activation of the SIM card you just bought. It's time to go to the communication salon for disassembly or try to solve the problem yourself. How to find out the connected services on Megafon? There are several ways.
Paid and free services
The company provides a large number of services,among which there are paid and free. The latter include, for example, melodic ringing on the dialer, checking the balance of the phone, receiving incoming calls, etc. But it's obviously different: there are much more paid services, including those not authorized by the subscriber. Of the standard paid services - calls from mobile phones, roaming, sending SMS. There are a number of other services subscribed to by the subscriber, for example, weather reports.
Spam is another problem for the subscriber. It is worth making a purchase on the Internet or registering on the forum - the phone number is placed at the disposal of third parties. And nothing can be done about this. Consoles only that the mailings from online stores are usually free. Next - in detail about how to find out the connected services on Megafon.
"Service guide" to help the subscriber
Useful function of "Service Guide" can be downloaded onwebsite operator and download the application to your mobile phone. To use the service, you need to register in it, then activate the request by pressing the key combination: * 105 # and "Call". This way you can access the Unified Information Center of the system. Here you can find all the information about the connected paid services. "Megaphone" on its website places a list of services, operator numbers and short numbers, where you can turn off unnecessary services - by calling the operator or by sending SMS. In the same service, you can not only check and disable services, but also connect the necessary ones and change the tariff plan. USDD-requests for * 105 # are free.
Another service - "Kaleidoscope"
This is another application that can be downloaded fromresource company Megafon. Disabling paid services here can also be made only after registration. You need to open the MegaFonPro page and go to the Settings tab. Open the option "Settings", with which it is easy to disconnect or connect any service from the offered list.
Visit to the Megafon communication salon
Which paid services are connected on the phone -can be found in any salon of the mobile operator. Who ever turned to managers with a similar problem, they can confirm that such a request does not cause any surprise, although a special joy, too. After all, they will have to help the client to disconnect a number of paid services, and this is not in the company's best interest. Nevertheless, when asked how to find out the connected services on Megafon, they will give out all the information without words, and then immediately delete all unnecessary information from the phone. These same office employees can find out a short number, from time to time you can independently check your phone for new connections. When applying to the operator's salon, you may be asked to show your passport.
Call the operator
This is another opportunity to learnconnected services on Megafon and turn off unwanted ones. There is a single number 0505, through which you can directly contact the network operator. After dialing, you must press the 0 key and wait for the answer. The operator will answer all questions and advise how to turn off this or that service. It is useful at the same time to prepare a paper and a pencil for recording numbers in advance: as a rule, for each service there is a number in the Megafon system.
Disabling paid services: a few tips
Managers of mobile phone offices tryconvince dissatisfied visitors that the connection of "left" services occurs without the knowledge of the company. But there are a number of services that belong to a given cellular operator is not in doubt, besides, it is more often advisable to disable them permanently. So, on each phone there is a function "Voicemail". It turns on automatically if the called subscriber does not answer. Rarely who uses this service, but the money for it is withdrawn from the account regularly - the subscription fee is 51 rubles per month.
Another service "to the lover" - "Replace the hooter"it costs 60 rubles a month. At the same time, the operator changes the beeps at will. To the majority of subscribers this service does not give anything, except superfluous expenses. Even more expensive - at 150 rubles a month - assesses the service for fans of anonymous calls - "Anti-license number" - the company "Megaphone". Disabling paid services of this kind really saves subscriber money, so from time to time it makes sense to check your phone and "clean" it from unused, but not free functions.
Once and for all it does not work out
It seems that all problems are solved, from unnecessary servicesunsubscribed. But it only seems so. After a while, the same services can be activated again on the phone, and again without the subscriber's knowledge. And again I have to go on the same circle. From dispatches from shops it is not easy to get rid of, even putting them on the "black list". Unfortunately, today mobile operators practically impose (or even sneak secretly) their paid services with impunity. In addition, there is a practice of selling short numbers, which allows casual owners to establish an entire industry of paid spam in the form of games, quizzes or other illicit and even fraudulent mailings. On numerous complaints from subscribers and attempts to see once again which services are connected, Megafon responds approximately like this: these short numbers are owned by individuals or companies, and the telecoms operator is not responsible for them.
And what should I do? To refuse from services of the cellular operator? Of course no. You just need to closely monitor your balance and at the first suspicion turn off unnecessary services. As for spam, it's up to you to fight yourself: to put numbers on the "black list", never to answer queries from unfamiliar short numbers inviting to win large sums or cars in quizzes or lotteries. As little as possible leave a phone number on various resources on the Internet. This is the only way to minimize unforeseen expenses for mobile communications.
