Fifty mobile operators now offer direct billing to developers on Blackberry App World app, according to a release from RIM.
A survey of 1,000 UK mobile users has suggested that 148.3 million spam texts are received by UK consumers per month, leading to potential fraud and loss of personal data for users and damaging consequences for operators.
The YouGov research found that 29% of respondents said that they would consider churning operator if they were exposed to more than 10 spam messages per month. The bad news for operators is that one in eight of those respondents who receive more than one message per month say they are already receiving those levels.
RCS and IP comms, OTT and cloud services all on the cards
Orange CEO Stéphane Richard has announced (or in some cases re-announced) a slew of product, network and service announcements at an event held in Paris this morning.
Richard said the announcements showcase service and product innovation at the operator, and added that the operator was committed to "provide the best communication services with a guarantee of simplicity and universality that you will not find elsewhere."
