DO NOT DISTURB SERVICE:::::::::::::::::::::::::: ADVANTAGE:::::::::::::::::: do not disturb (DND) is a service by which a person gets rid of unwanted bulk sms's. Many sms sourcing business, product promotion ofter pester the mobile phone owner. These sms are called Bulk sms, often send from a website or by a software. And with many of these cell phones having capacity to hold 50 sms to 200 sms in inbox as maximum, deleting these sms seem to have been a big punishment for them. Once you subscribe yourself in this website or send an sms to them, your number is enrolled with them with in 45 days. Once enrolled, you can be sure that "Bulk SMS" donot disturb you anymore. DISADVATAGE::::::::::::::::::::::: But the disadvantage is, all bulk sms are blocked. For instance, at EASY Investments we send market updates by sms. It is a convenient way of reaching all our investors, without disturbing them. These sms are sent through a dedicated website. But our sms would not reach the DND enabled mobile numbers. Hence many of the critical informations that could make lots of sense for your investments are being missed out. HOW TO ACTIVATE DND:::::::::::::::::::: 1.Send an sms with message "START DND" to telephone number "1909". 2.Telephone calls/SMSs to this number are FREE of cost. 3.The telecom service provider will acknowledge the request within ten days. 4.Requests will become effective in 45 days from the date of request. HOW TO CANCLE DND: ;;:::::: Subscriber may also cancel their earlier requests by calling or sending SMS with Keywords ”STOP DND” to “1909”. You may find your successful cancellation of registration will effective after 45 THANKS

As per TRAI (Telecom Regulatory Authority of India) consumers can register their telephone number or their mobile number for inclusion in the NCPR (National Consumer Preference Register) for simply dialing 1909, and then follow the instruction. However many will not be able to successfully activate the DND services and will fail to get their number in the DND registry. You can check if your number is listed in NCPR. Click this Customer Registration Status If your number is not listed you must get it listed there. The best way is to call your mobile customer care number and speak to the operator and get your number listed in the NCPR. Once your number gets registered the unwanted messages and promotional calls will reduce (well it will not completely stop, but it will be very less, better than too many). As I have already mentioned the best way is to call and chat with a customer care executive and get the DND activated. Also remember your number will be included in the NCPR database within 7 days of the registration of your request with the service provider.

Also remember your number will be included in the NCPR database within 7 days of the registration of your request with the service provider. Mind you this is really confusing. Activate DND and De-activate DND. Remember you need to activate DND to stop getting commercial communications on your phone and de-activate DND to actual start receiving annoying ads, communications etc. Here is another way to register from the NCPR ( but may not work for many). How to register from NCPR You can register by Dialing 1909 or sending SMS to 1909. Dial 1909 and go through the Interactive Voice Response System (IVRS) or via customer care executive. You can choose to fully block category (no calls and no SMS’s) or partially block category (No calls but SMS based on your preferences) Once successfully registered you will get the SMS with unique registration number. You can try using SMS by sending START 0 to 1909 to block all categories, or START {number} to 1909 to receive SMS from related services. ( Check related category listed below) On success you will get an SMS to confirm the same. Once you send a confirmation via SMS the options are implemented.
