How to Deactivate Annoying GLO Value Added Services

If you are my type that do received annoying value added services from GLO most especially from Glo Frenzo and GLO SMS Menu, then here is how to deactivate them.
There is this annoying text messages that the number start from 547*****, and also, they came in calls too. Well I grew tired of them and devote a whole day trying to figure out how to deactivate them. After scouring the internet, since their customer centre hardly help, all you need to do is to send UNSUB to 547.  That should sure do it.
Then again, there is this annoying sms from 8888, I dont even know how I subscribed to it, but they are sure annoying, as regards that, all you need to do is the following:

For word of the day sms UNSUB WORD to 8888,
For Jokes send UNSUB JOKE to 8888,
For Health tips send UNSUB HT to 8888,
For Weight loss tips send UNSUB WLT to 8888,
For Weight Gain tips send UNSUB WGT to 8888,
For Christianity send UNSUB CHRIST to 8888,
For Islam UNSUB ISLAM to 8888,
For Romance UNSUB ROM to 8888,
For Dating Tips UNSUB DAT to 8888.
For Hair Tips UNSUB HAIR to 8888

As for the Glo Radio and calls from 4040 number, if you are using a smartphone, just download any of the call blocker and include those numbers among the blocked calls. That should do it.
Now, just pause and ponder how this telecom companies can really bored us with unsoliciting value added services without telling us making it obvious how to deactivate them.

In addition to that helpful list, you can also send just "UNSUB" to 8888 to unsubscribe from all 8888 stupid services (I hope calls too).
