Turn off notifications...

... for text, but not for calls!


Every time I send a message, I got a notification: "woohoo, this message was free, you balance is: £5".

That's great, but since I have unlimited messages, it's always going to be free. I have although only limited minutes to talk(£10 Goodybag), and I'd be happy to see the notification after I call somebody.


Is it possible? As far as I know I can only turn off notification altogether, but that's not what I want.

Sorry, but no.

It is off altogether or on. You cannot customise.

Nope sorry, all the notifications come under the same setting at the moment :smileysad:

You can check your usage free if your phone has a internet browser? Will display how many minutes you have left.

Re: Turn off notifications...

This has been proposed as a future enhancement here:


If you want to give it your support, please do - the more members who support it, the more likely it is that GG will implement it (assuming that it's technically possible of course).
