    There had been an app in android known as "ussd blocker" with which we were able to block such messages... Sadly nothing like that is available in WP.. I had asked some developers to create some app like that.. No one could do that till date...

    Its on your operator. I use Vodafone 3g on my lumia 925 i never get such notifications. Try activating DND that might help you.

    No he is not talking about text messages. He is talking about data usage notifications which is a kind of service from operator to notify you how much you used your data and how much data is left. I never got such notifications so i can't share a screenshot of it to show. OP if possible can you share screenshot of that notification for xandros?

    A simple example if you have used a prepaid sim after ending a call you get a pop up message informing you your call cost and remaining balance similarly you get such pop ups for mobile data.

    Wow that sounds annoying as hell. I'm glad I've never been on a carrier dumb enough to think that's still necessary.

    Have you updated to Windows Phone 8.1? If so, do these USSD messages show up in Action Center?

    I tried filters,but the funniest part is that these messages are flash messages or ussd messages which doesn't have a sender number to filter out :p

    Woah that dialog is out of the jurisdiction of the call+sms filter.

    I dont know if there's a setting we can flip. (maybe in field test?)

    but perhaps the carrier can shut them off somehow.

    No way to shut then off from user level ๐Ÿ˜“
    Service provider should be kind enough to shut them off from his system.

    So I went to Call + SMS filter.
    Then advanced settings.
    I then enabled 'Block withheld numbers'.

    It seems to have worked for me so far.
    Will edit this post if the data alerts start again. But so far, so good.

    Cheers.
