    Hi Kuldip, that's the major problem all mobiles users currently facing. So, we have a DND registry service from TRAI.By subscribing to DND, telemarketers & advertisers stops sending you all that crap messages. Even your mobile operator also stop sending you promos.

    Choose your mobile operator from DND List (http://www.telecomdiary.com/ti/do-not-disturb-register-dnd/) and follow procedure. Even after 45 days from DND subscribing you receive sms and ads contact concerned officer…. contact details given in each mobile operator page.

    Hope this clarifies you, write back if any…

    Dear Amardeep,

    If you are prepaid customer, try this link. http://goo.gl/V29IB
    If you are a postpaid customer, wait till that link works or write to Idea Cellular customer care [email protected].
    As an option to register or de-register DND services call to toll free number 1909 from your Idea Cellular.
    To register send START DND or de-register send STOP DND as sms to 1909 from your idea cellular mobile.

    Hope this information helps you.

    1) As am a registered DND ,I use to receive sms from services like Bank balance, Flight delayed information, doctors sms as your reports are ready , car servicing done and ready for delivery etc.
    but from yesterday all sms have been stopped.
    MY QUESTION IS :
    is there any facility which divides sms into 2 categories,
    1)Informative sms / Service sms
    2) Marketing SMS

    please let me know

    Hi Sameer,

    There are two types of messages. Solicited and Unsolicited.

    In Solicited messages are pull messages, you expect them, i.e., Bank balance, withdrawal, deposit, IRCTC, Flight details an from your doctor. You subscribe the.

    Unsolicited, where they are push messages, you don’t expect them, but people send them to promote their brands and sell products. You can stop totally or partially this kind of messages by subscribing to NCPR (old DND)

    Even you register with NCPR, your bankers and doctors can still send messages to you.
