Just to let everyone know, I also found out what mobile tube is, and just a warning to anyone in the UK especially, it is a scam! They send you a text/mms/video message telling you its from your providor and to click on a link which takes you to a website and tells you to download a video, I stupidly did this... and now I have been charged 1.50 for nothing, the video was pathetic too...
So the best thing to do is the following:

The scammers that sent you the text on short code 82442 are:

Venista Ltd
2nd Floor, Berkeley Square House
Berkeley Square
London
W1J 6BD
Tel: 08706 091 720

I advise you to contact them and demand the removal of you details from their data bank or you will continue to receive these costly texts. There is also a good chance that Venista will sell on your details to other scammers and the problems will continue.

t is very important that you get your details removed from the data bank of this company for the reasons I have explained. The 08706 number will cost you 12p pm on a landline but I have found an e-mail address for you: [email address] or [email address]

They replied to me within 24 hours and told me I would be removed from their system.
Thank goodness, I will let you know if I hear anything else from them.
