I've got a new sim card. After it found the network, soon I've got an sms (supposedly from my operator) saying:
Dear client! We are installing applications on your sim card for free. Please enable automatic sms sending if necessary.
After about 30 minutes, I've got another sms saying:
Highway fees, mobile lottery, parking, infoSMS/MMS. Use the 'operator-name-here' menu on your phone if it supports it.
To be clear, I want to opt out. Need none of these and don't like the idea that any applications are auto-installing, not even 'for free'. But I don't even understand what's going on.
- Can applications even be installed on the sim card?
- What kind of applications, what's the technical name for them?
How do they work basically in technical terms?
I see no
<operator-name-here> menuin all applications nor in settings.
What standard should my phone support to have this menu?
The sms said that please enable automatic sms . Since I want to opt-out, I've searched all my settings to disable it, but in vain.
What is automatic sms sending?
How can I disable automatic sms on Android in general, and in 2.1 eclair, specifically?
How do I list and view what applications are installed on my SIM?
