    Hello Pavan,

    Any mobile number/s can be black-listed by either default Smartphone feature or apps (if you have smartphone); else you can register a compliant with your local police station to block individual private telephone numbers.
    DND deals with commercials calls and messages only.

    Hi there,

    I am currently on roaming, and the number of messages i receive are extremely irritating. I came across this page on doing a bit of google search. I tried the sms and call option to 1909, it however, yielded no results. The sms was barred and call was directly disconnected within the second. I tried the link posted about 2 messages above, and the link appears broken. Mine is a pre-paid connection. Please advice, on how i may activate the DND service. On an average i receive around 11 messages from morning till evening on a daily basis, all of which are either ads or promos.

    Looking forward to a means to get rid of these annoying messages.

    Hello Walter,

    1909 is a working number.
    However, if you are pre-paid customer, give DND request online. Don’t forget to choose your state on right.

    Kushal Desai

    I’m Kushal from Maharashtra. My number is 9730477491. Although my number is active in NCPR, I frequently get calls from banks regarding Credit cards, personal loan requirements.
    When I called customer care they said, you’re partially blocked and option 4 – health is active. If you activate fully blocked category, you’ll miss out transactional messages. Is that true ?
    he was nnot ready to take my complaint on this.
    Please advise.

    This is another typical example how Idea swindles their customers !!. If you contact their customer care again to complain about this, you will end up in spending another Rs.3.00 for that call !

    Hello Siddhi,

    There are two ways:-

    1) If you are using a smart phone, use call blocking apps.
    2) Call to police.
