I turned off all my push notifications, and I still keep getting text from Instagram, e.g. when someone liked my photos or left a message. But I also keep receiving txt messages from Instagram telling me about things like whats new on instagram, or for me to check out a someone i have no interest is doing.

I still have my Instagram and like the service just want Instagram to stop txting my in the middle of the night with things I don't want to be informed with.

How can I stop them from texting me all night long?

  • What kind of messages are you getting? Is it when somebody likes your photo? – geffchang Jul 10 '13 at 2:04

    This looks suspiciously similar to android.stackexchange.com/questions/48803/… – Dan Hulme Jul 10 '13 at 7:56

  • Is it really SMS ? Or is it notifications ? Notifications can often be disabled in the application settings. If it is text message, then it can be disabled in your Instagram account settings (but I have never heard of such an option for Instagram). – Matthieu Harlé Jul 12 '13 at 14:32

    You should have edited that into your question, which would automatically have nominated it to be re-opened. As the reason for putting it on hold no longer stands, chances are good it will be opened again. Just as a hint for a possible "next time" -- I just did that for you on this question. – Izzy Jul 12 '13 at 14:34

Open Instagram... Then go to "Edit Your Profile" and then delete your mobile number from your profile... Hope it helps..

Just text "stop" to the number sending you those annoying messages. worked for me!

    Comment from user60710 (who lacks the rep to do so): texting "stop" was the answer. This was a twitter notification from following instagram. Shutting off notifications in twitter didn't work but replying stop did the job! Thank you! Even my teenage kids couldn't help! – Izzy May 14 '14 at 18:33
