What is StopSMS?
StopSMS.lu is a joint service by Luxembourg mobile operators that allows owners of Luxembourg mobile phone numbers to terminate subscription-based Premium SMS Services that are charged at regular intervals to their mobile phone subscription plan/invoices.
Common questions about unsubscribing & refunds
- Unsubscribing from subscribed services is very simple. To do so, mobile phone subscribers simply have to send a text message with “Stop” to the short code that sent them the premium SMS.
- Visit http://www.stopsms.lu for more details.
To obtain a refund, mobile subscribers are best advised to contact the provider of the premium service offering/selling the service in question. The latter are obliged to provide their contact details. However, certain conditions apply to obtaining a refund: a refund can be requested if there is no proof of the subscription made by the end-user or if the content provider/service does not comply with the law and/or the regulation.
For subscription-based Premium SMS services, stopsms.lu will provide the details of the services that a mobile subscriber has registered and is paying for.
The owner of the phone is always responsible for its usage. Accordingly, mobile phone owners should always be careful who they allow to use their phone. A refund in such cases can not be guaranteed.
