How do I stop adverts from showing at the bottom of SMS I send out?

NaijaNimi Awoof SMS is sponsored by advertisers who are allowed to automatically insert forty to fifty characters of adverts in parentheses() at the bottom of outgoing text messages. To remove these adverts, you need to activate a premium subscription for N500 or N1000 or N3600.

If you signed up with a bogus email address then unfortunately, you\'re out of luck.
