HOW TO STOP UNWANTED TEXTS AND CALLS FROM SHORT CODES

Sometime ago I made a post on how to use a certain Android App called Bing to stop all the unsolicited and Annoying Spam advert Messages from several Network providers. I personally knows first hand how annoying it can be when you will be expecting a real text message then your phone beeps or starts ringing only for to check and an annoying text mssg or call from a shortcode  number singer shoki for you.

I am sure that MTN has learnt their lesson after paying several fines to NCC and found a way of minimizing their losses and introduced  D-N-D

This serevic, he (Do-Not-Disturb) allows MTN customers to opt out of receiving promotional messages for 3rd Party services (Bulk SMS, VAS promos, etc.) The service will feature the following:


  •  Fully Blocked mode which allows customers to Opt-Out totally from receiving promotional messages via SMS and IVR.
  • Partially Blocked mode allows mtn customers to filter service categories for promotional messages they wish to receive. Any category not selected is blocked. 
  • These two services are absolutely FREE-OF-CHARGE


The following SMS keywords can be used to set your DND preference.


STOP: To stop all SMS and IVR messages 
ALLOW: To receive all SMS and IVR messages
STATUS: To check your DND status

Simply text HELP to the short code 2442 to find out more
