Activating the Do-Not-Disturb feature so that you can stop receiving those annoying, unsolicited, promotional text messages is an essential thing to do. Especially at a time when a Nigerian telocoms start bombarding you with messages once you activate a new sim. In addition to the various unnecessary text mesage subscriptions that ship with your phone.
Anyway, thanks to NCC- Nigerian Telecom Commission. Opting out of receiving those messages is now easier. All you have to do is:
Text ‘stop’ to 2442
And you’ll receive a message notifying you that you’ve been opted out from DND. Or some networks like airtel might tell you thay you request to opt out is still being processed. But should work within 24hours.
“Over 4 million people have activated this features to ensure nothing spoils their day. So why shouldn’t you? “
Whichever way, you should be opted out of DND before you receive the n silly message. It works for all mobile networks: Glo, Airtel, MTN and 9mobile. I tried to arrange them in order of level of disturbance. Opting out of DND should also stop those calls you receive that tell you about promotional offers.
You can also send HELP to 2442 to access the list of options. You can choose receive messages from specific interests, for example sports, health, etc.
