Charge for incoming texts. I like to help people with business ideas but would like to charge them a small fee

Special number so I can can receive 1p per incoming text. Or credit for my nexy goodybag.

I am often swamped with texts from people who are using up my time with enquiries. If they had to pay a bit they might not send so many texts!

Giffgaff USED to do a goodybag called the "labs" bag and you actually got a certain number of free/extra minutes based on the number of calls you had received, so if people called you for an hour you would get 10 mins free outgoing calls credited on your account.

Only for calls, not texts, and they stopped the bag after a year as it wasn't very popular and the people voted that they wanted other things! So this unfortunately isn't going to happen again as giffgaff already did it!

But - there is nothing at all stopping you getting a special number if you want and charging people to call or text you. Just google how to get a 0870 or 09 or premium number and sign up with whatever company you want and they will pay you, and the call can still be transferred and answered on your giffgaff number. Giffgaff don't stop you doing it.

premium sms services are a business services which are normally separate from a sim card as most are a using software sms gateway. You would then reply through software not using normal sms on a phone.

Not supported due to the fact it seems you want extra costs to be added to a sms sent to a standard sim card which would make it impossible for anyone to know if it was a premium sms that would cost them extra.

Current system of premium sms is best way of keeping separation of costs for users.

I actually would prefer ofcom to legislate a £10 change from any number that calls me that at the end of the call I class as a marketing call. That will go some way to stop the cold callers!
