    Hello Folks…. I am using dnd service from few years and never had a problem… But since i joined my college i m not able to receive any updates regarding college activities.. when i complained in office.they told me to deactivate your dnd service in order to receive any updates… My question is that.. Is there any way to receive only college updates and not company offers….

    • TelecomDiary on 9th Nov' 14 Reply #5517

      Hello Chitransh,

      1) If your College is using online SMS services than a dedicated SMS gateway from an operator, you will not receive any SMS if DND is active.
      2) You cannot block all commercial offers and receive only your College updates.

    Sir, My number is 9850962922 and I have ported out from Idea to BSNL. Since last 18months i am suffering from unwanted calls. I tried to send sms to 1909 with “START” option manytimes, it is not activated to block the telemarketing calls. I inquired BSNL, they are saying problems are there with portability numbers and customer care is totally useless and irresponsible. Not yet rectified. pls do something or give suggestion to block all telemarketing calls.
