Mobile Firms Angered By Adult SMS Plans

A number of mobile content firms in the UK are annoyed at the Mobile Data Association’s plan for “premium content SMS” – which you can properly read as “porn content SMS”. The plan would set aside certain numbers (sort of like a 1-900 block of phone numbers) for content providers wishing to offer “adult-themed” content. However, many content providers are annoyed that they weren’t consulted on the plans, and that the current plans may displace a number of content providers who already use those numbers.
