Recently, Russia's daughter complained on Twitter that she had to pay two rubles for any SMS sent to 900.
"News of the day! # Sberbank, it seems that it takes 2 rubles for an SMS message to 900 number," the woman wrote in her count.
As it turns out, it's not the only one and notice the loss of money from a mobile account. For the first time, SMS was sent to the 900 number for the late summer of 2018. Then several publications appeared on the popular Picaba website, where this issue was discussed.
Many subscribers pointed out that almost all operators charge for SMS to the 900 number. At the same time, many of the allegations flew towards the direction of a financial institution, however, some Russians realized that Sberbank was not responsible for the Fee for SMS, but from the mobile operator.
"And where is Sberbank? The network operator takes the payment for the user's SMS. The bank does not accept anything from this payment," one of the authors wrote users.
He also added that the bank has other free services for money transfer and account recalculation.
Other commentators noted that sending messages to the 900 mobile Tele2 operators raises 2 rubbish on each tariff scheme. The commission was incorporated in mid August 2018. Also, Sberbank must pay customers for MegaFon, Beeline and MTS for SMS. The price varies depending on the tariff scheme, and the cost does not affect whether or not the SMS package has to be connected.
Experts emphasize that the fee is charged because mobile operators consider the number 900 entertaining, and as you know, you have to pay for entertainment.
