Mobile spam typically refers to unsolicited communications sent via SMS or MMS to customers without consent. This can be especially irritating to the subsribers not only because of the inconvenience caused but also because sometimes the subscriber has to pay to receive the text message. In response, most often the subscriber is quick to blame the operator as the cause of the problem, irrespective of the originator responsible for the spam. Mobile phone users expect the operator to eliminate spams coming from their network.
