Default Nextel BB 7520

Please Login to Remove!

Does anyone else get these two messages on their BB?

In order to sign up for this service you must register for the Nextel Wallet by the following link: http://nmqube.qpass.com/qinquiry?qvpid

=register&qconf=1 or reply STOPALL to end the service

I get these 2-3 times a day every day or so as messages. I am not browsing or anything when I get these. I was wondering if somebody is trying to email or send me something that not supported. Any ideas out there??

sounds like spam or an attempt to get you to sign up for their service..

sort of like the famous "your request has been filled" or the "you have been approved!" emails you receive on the regular..

The questionable part is if trying to remove yourself will just cause you more spam from them or another partner party .. never know when its safe to click the "Remove me" or not

Default Spam Messages

I had the problem a few days ago so I called up Nextel and had them clear out my webclient. I went back to the Blackberry email page and just created a new account. The best way to ensure that you dont get spam on your BB email is to make sure and not use it to register for programs or other stuff. Also, before I posted it in my signature on this forum and others. After I created a new one I took it off places where people are subject to get it and spam the hell outta me. This time I have kept my new email more secretive than "Area 51!" LoL

I'm not a Blackberry user - I'm a "regular phone" user - haven't graduated to the Blackberry yet. I found this site as a result of a Google Search on the word "nmqube".

I have been getting these text messages on my i88s (go ahead - laugh it up, hehe!) for about a month now - they always come in pairs, and BOY was I surprised when I found out I was being CHARGED 15 cents a pop for them! I get them at 2 in the morning even.

Nextel was totally uncooperative - after two 45-minute conversations, they gave me 3 options: 1) disable all Text Messages, 2) Change my Phone number, or 3) Disable my Voice Mail. I had already authorized them to disable my IP feature on the phone about 2 weeks before when the problem (unwanted text messages) 1st started. They said "sometimes it doesn't work".

I called Qpass, and left a message for them, describing the problem (I had gone onto their site & had seen the Nextel references). They left me a message about a week later saying "this is not our problem. it's a company called nmqube, or it's Nextel's problem."

Ack! I CAN'T be the only customer who's getting these - but my CS rep said "no - no one gets these - you must have signed-up for it - blah blah blah."

Here's my problem: I don't want to give up my number - the "text message disabling" didn't work (and the CS rep gave me some weird explanation of "well, if they use a different computer, we can't do anything about it - I didn't understand that); all my stationary, all my clients, etc. have it. I would rather not lose my voice mail. What other options do I have? I've been a Nextel customer since 1996.

Any ideas?

Thanks!!!

AND ... what if this is just the beginning ...

Call me a conspiracy theorist, but what if nmqube or qpass, or xyz company decides to make a deal with Nextel "Give us your phone numbers ... we'll send your customers 10 text messages a day - you charge them fifteen cents each, and tell them you can't stop it. All you have to do is kick-back five cents per message to us! Everyone wins!".

Davalos,

Call Nextel back and talk to someone else. If you still get nowhere, tell them how long you have been with them and then tell them to cancel your service. You will be switched to a "retention specialist" and they WILL compensate you and resolve your issue. They do not want to lose a customer in this highly competitive industry, especially one who has been with them for 9 years !!!

I registered my cell phone number with the National "do not call registry" just in case. https://www.donotcall.gov/default.aspx

My home phone has absolutely zero telemarketing calls......as well as my cell phone.

I called Nextel about this issue the other day and they sent me to Tech 2 and still to no avail, they have no clue. I gave them the info from the messages, and everything. They have no clue where it's coming from. They don't think it's a text message, and it's definetly not an email! They tried to Block the incoming messages, but that did not work, due to them not being able to track where it's coming from. They were more then happy to jump at trying everything they could and ask me to call back if I find ANYTHING else about this. Evidently it must be a growing problem. I have checked my bill and am not being billed for it, but I do think it's annoying as hell! I usually get them 2 minutes apart to the second! I get it usually about once a day sometimes twice. Does anyone else have any ideas??????????????

I called Nextel again yesterday after receiving 2 more text messages. This time I was livid. I was VERY surprised to find out that the person I was talking to HAD heard of the problem, and HAD many ideas besides just the "a) disable IP, b) change number, or c) lose voicemail. She was very surprised that the last rep seemed to have no clue.

Her name was Cassie - from the Ontario call-in center. And in 45 seconds, she recognized my problem, told me what she was going to do, and did it. Badda BOOM! Ya Estuvo. I called again and asked to speak with her manager, and passed-on my kudos to her supervisor. I also wanted to pass on my extreme DISSATISFACTION with the previous rep who I had spent the 2nd 45 minutes on the phone with ... and not only had she not done anything, she didn't even LOG THE CALL. Wow, if I could just get my hands on that little biach!

It's only been a day, but so far, so good. Cassie rules! Call her NOW.

doesnt suprise me that the previous rep didnt know of the problem or logged the call .. they all do it..

unfortunately there isnt anything we can do about it.. we are at the mercy or the next CSR we reach when we have a problem, and they can hang up if they wanted to and no one would be able to track them down..

glad you got your problem squared away..
