How to deactivate Do-Not-Disturb (DND), On MTN, Glo, 9mobile And Airtel, is the main question being asked by the affected subscribers.
As we all know that bulk SMS Nigeria platforms have been battling with bulk SMS messages’ delivery problem since more than 2 years ago. This is as a result of the implementation of Do-Not-Disturb (DND) by GSM operators.
The solution to Do-Not-Disturb (DND) which blocks GSM phone number from receiving bulk SMS messages is specified here.
Simply follow the information as provided below by GSM operators in Nigeria.
To deactivate DND on any 9mobile (Etisalat) number, Text START to 2442.
To deactivate DND on any MTN number, Text ALLOW to 2442.
To deactivate DND on any Glo number, Text CANCEL to 2442.
To deactivate DND on any Airtel number, Text ALLOW to 2442.
DND deactivation takes 24 hours to complete the process. In other words, you will start receiving bulk SMS messages from bulk SMS websites 24 hours after following the deactivation process.
Based on our experience, you may have to switch off your mobile phone and remove the SIM card. You can switch it ON immediately and insert the SIM card. After then, you wait for 24 hours as stated above.
Please, note that NCC compelled the telecommunication operators (MTN Nigeria, Glo Nigeria, Airtel Nigeria and 9mobile Nigeria) to implement DND. Therefore, all the GSM operators in Nigeria imposed DND without the subscribers’ consent.
However, the good news is that you can still confirm by sending STATUS to 2442 to know if your number is on DND or not.
