1. Are you ready for the Galaxy S20? Here is everything we know so far!

My carrier (Vodafone) is showing me pop-up messages, any way to stop them?

    So nearly every five minutes, I get this message from Vodafone as shown below. I've tried clicking on cancel and OK but that hasn't stopped these from coming. Clicking on OK took me to the "SIM 1 Toolkit" app, so this is probably coming from there? I can't disable this app however, and possibly this app needs to stay on for the SIM to work normally.

    Is there any safe way to stop these from coming?

    So it's pushed messages from Vodafone. If there's no way to stop or unsubscribe from the SIM Toolkit options. You'll probably need to contact Vodafone customer service about it m

    Perhaps I'm simply too skeptical, but the wording/grammar/writing style just scream spam/scam.

    Yep, I think it's a scam too. Thankfully though, they somehow stopped sending me these today! :) I just hope it remains like this tho....

    I am travelling through many countries and I meet often this things, I don't know how they subscribe me to this but I getting very angry on such stuff. Once I called to an operator and asked him to stop this things and he said that he is not responsible for this things, that was a punch. Then I found a few guys that are experts in unlock ee phone and they fixed everything in less than a minute. To be honest I had no idea how they did this, but now there are no more popups like this, I am very thankful.

    This is how I stopped it, I hope it helps you as well:
    1. Go to Settings
    2. Go to Installed apps
    3. Search for Sim Tool Kit
    4. Select Sim Tool Kit
    5. Select Notifications under the permissions tab
    6. Uncheck all the notifications type i.e. uncheck priority, sound, vibration, notification light etc. you will not be able to uncheck show notification but thats fine.
    This annoying flash messages is one of the reason why subscribers shifted from idea to jio. If idea does not understand, it may lose customers.
