Koodo does not have any way to be able to block 3rd party services. The best you can do is unsubscribe if your number ends up on their list. Most of the time, it's because your number was previously used and the previous user did not unsubscribe.

No other phone company can block these specifically. You should be able to just simply respond 'stop' to the texts they send you to unsubscribe.

Same thing happened to me today while I was at work. Had my phone in my back pocket and when i looked at it apparently I was signed up to gamifive which ive never even heard of before but somehow i signed up to it using only my ass.
If i get a $10 charge on my phone bill ill switch providers to someone who blocks 3rd partys charging to your phone.

Will, read this entire thread and follow the instructions provided. Since its not Koodo providing the charge they can't stop it. Btw even if you ported your number to another provider the messages will continue.
