Flash SMS Messages

To stop flash messages on your iPhone, there are several methods you can try, depending on the type of flash messages you’re receiving:

  1. Disabling Carrier Flash Messages:
    • If the flash messages are from your mobile carrier (like Airtel or Vodafone Idea), you can disable them through the SIM Applications settings. Here’s how:
      • Open the Settings app on your iPhone.
      • Tap on Mobile Data.
      • Select SIM Applications.
      • Choose the associated SIM service (e.g., Airtel now!, Vodafone Idea, etc.).
      • Tap on the Flash! option (or a similarly named option) and choose to disable or deactivate the flash messages​​​​.
  2. Turning Off LED Flash Alerts:
    • If you’re referring to the LED Flash for Alerts feature, which causes your iPhone’s camera flash to blink when you receive notifications:
      • Go to Settings > Accessibility > Audio/Visual.
      • Find and turn off the LED Flash for Alerts option.
      • You can also manage this setting specifically for silent mode by adjusting the Flash on Silent option​​.
  3. Managing Notifications for Specific Apps:
    • If flash messages are coming from a specific app, you can manage or stop these notifications:
      • Open Settings and tap on Notifications.
      • Scroll down to find the app that is sending flash notifications.
      • Toggle off the Allow Notifications option for that app. This action will prevent the app from sending any type of notifications, including flash messages​​.

By following these methods, you should be able to stop different types of flash messages on your iPhone, whether they are from your mobile carrier, part of the LED flash alerts, or coming from specific apps.
