Disable Balance Pop-ups

Status: Implemented

While for some users, having your giffgaff call balance pop-up after each text or call is really handy, for others it can be a real pain - especially on some handsets where the pop-up is quite intrusive.


Unfortunately this cannot currently be set on or off individually - it is either on for everyone (as it is now) or off for everyone.  Personally I don't mind too much either way, though I can appreciate that it is probably more of an issue for those who don't like it than those who do, so I wouldn't really miss it if it was turned off (especially as you can request an on-demand balance by sending *100# anyway).


If you would prefer it to be off for everyone then please Kudos this idea, if you would prefer to have them left on then please add a comment.  Ideally I suppose we could have the option to turn off and on individually - but that would be a longer term goal as the system would need to be changed to incorporate that.

For any Windows Mobile users out there, I've posted a workaround in the Learn: Giff Gaff Top Tips section that lets you disable ALL USSD notifications.


Unfortunately, this will also disable balance requests (*100#) and all other popups - so only use this if you really can't stand popups after every SMS.

It might not be desirable to disable all USSD.


Editing the registry might not be something for novice users.
