How to deactivate Info SMS TIM from your cell phone
The simplest method to deactivate Info SMS TIM is to send an SMS to the number 40916 with the following text inside: INFOSMS OFF (all in capital letters). In a few seconds you will receive a confirmation SMS notifying you of the deactivation of the service.
Alternatively, you can contact the number 40920 and command the deactivation of the SMS information service from there. The procedure to follow is quite simple: you have to listen to the prompts of the recorded voice, press the button corresponding to the option to enable/disable SMS information (must be number 3) and wait a few seconds on the line.
The recorded voice will tell you that the SMS information service is active on your line and will ask you to press a button (usually 2) to deactivate it. Then press the button indicated by the automatic service and the changes will be applied instantly.
The key combinations to be pressed are subject to frequent variations, so if you want to avoid mistakes, listen carefully to the recorded voice prompts and follow them.
At the end of the operation, to verify that everything went well, try to make a phone call. If the SMS information service has really been deactivated, at the end of the conversation you will not receive the fateful SMS with the remaining credit.
Alternatively, you can also call 40920 and press the button corresponding to the option to enable/disable SMS reporting. The recorded voice will tell you the current status of the service on your line (whether it is still active or already disabled).

If you prefer Twitter, you can contact TIM by mentioning at the beginning of a tweet an account of your choice between @ TIM4UAlessio, @ TIM4UGiulia and @ TIM4UStefano. Do not enter your cell phone number or other personal information in the initial tweet (which will be public).
Within a few hours you will be contacted by a TIM operator who, hopefully, will help you solve your problems and doubts regarding the InfoSMS service. For more information, read also my tutorial on how to talk to a TIM operator.
