Re-Activate Expired Google SMS Channel Subscription

Haven’t received free sms’s in the form of jokes, breaking news, blog updates, etc subscribed from Google Sms?
Well, you are not the only one! Google sends its subscribers sms’s mentioning that they need to activate their subscription in order to continue receiving free sms’s. The reason why you are receiving these sms’s is fact that you have been inactive for more than 6 months. And by “inactive”, Google means that you have not visited the Google Sms channels web site or have not sent any SMS to 9870807070 from your mobile for at least 6 months.

In case you still haven’t received any such sms from google then see the following image to get an idea of the Sms you will receive prior to deactivation of your service by Google Sms Channel:

How To Re-Activate Free Sms From Google Sms Channel

The sms you will receive from google will contain the details of activation. However, am still repeating them for convenience. All you need to do is type “ACTV” (without quotes) and send it to +919870807070 (the same number from where Google send’s you sms). Since this is a regular number and NOT A PREMIUM number, you will be charged as per normal sms rates of your operator (For Airtel its Rs. 1).

Once you send the sms, you will receive a comfirmation stating that your account has been successfully activated. From thereon, you will start receiving sms from Google Sms channel as usual.

  8. Google seems to be having some problem with sms labs. Even i didn’t get any verification sms. Also, don’t try for next few days as goverment of india has banned bulk sms.

  9. There is no need to be depressed. You can always open another channel. And you can post your query here: groups.google.com/group/google-sms-channels

  10. The only reason for Google to block/remove your channel is “Unacceptable” content. Make sure your Google sms channel complied with Terms and Conditions. And if it did then open a ticket with Google to get this thing rectified.
