      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…

            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 !

      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.

    How to add a vendor to the Solicited list of messages?

    For example: I expect messages from a Shopping Mall that I regularly visit. I don’t want to receive messages from any other Shopping Malls.

    If you are a Idea customer, dont send sms to 1909, they are charging 5 Rs. however you can make a call as it is toll free. I dont know how Idea is charging for the SMS, its unfair. With around 98 million users, lets say 50million people send SMS while others use toll free call, Idea will generate a reveue of 250 million rupees=25,00,00,000 = a whoopping 25 Crore rupees !!!.

    This is really unfair on part of Idea.

      Hi Roop, same case here – receiving a lot of these silly promo calls throughout the day, and sometimes at night too. It is surprising that in this “I T” India and with so many brilliant brains around, these people have only one ‘fit-all-sizes” ( read “fit all queries”) answer, – “SMS START 0 to 1909″ to just block everything! I dont think it is difficult to program the servers to selectively block all calls – like ‘starting with eg. 914010…’ or SMS s originating from certain numbers. But they dont want to, since there is big money in ad pushing. Money first, service, well, uh uh…

    Hi, My query is that if I activate DND by sending START 0, then will I receive confirmation messages from the services like say IRCTC, some BANKs, etc.??

    I have been regularly complaining idea customer care to deactivate the D mall service from my number 9868481809. On daily basis an amount of rs 2 is deducted. The total loss is more than rs 50. Every time I call the customer care they assure me to deactivate and I receive a sms from ide confirming that the service is deactivated. Again next day the amount of rs 2 is deducted for same service. Deactivate it permanently from my number and return my balance or I will be forced to go to consumer court for further action against idea. My circle is New Delhi.

    My service provider IDEA deducts all my balance as soon as i top-up my number 7309389184. When i contact the customer care, it is very difficult to talk to a live person and register my complaint. Several times i have used keywords given in promotional sms to unsubscribe from services like ‘MCI Alternative Day’, ‘Education Word’ and ‘Raam Baan’ etc. which i had never opted for in the first place, but to no avail. This happens even after registering my number with the old DND.
    When i got really bothered by the financial loss, i went to the IDEA office in Lucknow and personally talked to the authorities there. They assured me that it will not happen in the future and then sent me an sms: ‘Your request number 123263199059 has been resolved.’ All the sms and unwanted calls stopped bothering me after that but the amount from my prepaid number still gets deducted whenever i recharge with even a small amount leaving me with zero balance.
    I am really fed up with this and am seriously thinking about opting for MNP, but then think about similar problems from other service providers. Is there any other way to resolve this issue..?

      Hello Hoorie,

      Those are “value added services” which gets activated by default. Call your customer care and ask them to deactivate all value added services on your mobile number.
      From which state you are?

        I am from Uttar Pradesh. And my circle is UP (East)… got the connection from Lucknow. I have asked the customer care once to deactivate all services, got a confirmation sms but the problem persisted. Then went to the IDEA office as told earlier, but still balance gets dedcuted. Do you think i should lodge my request with the customer care again and then recharge with a small amount to check whether the problem has been resolved or not..?

      Hello Swathi,

      You should contact Idea customer care to activate international roaming to use your Idea mobile in Dubai, but Idea may ask you to keep some security deposit, however roaming charges may high, if you compare local Du or Etisalat services.
      Also, you can contact Idea customer care to preserve your number for the certain period, while you are in Dubai. If not, Idea may deactivate the number when you are not in their network for more tan 6 months.

      You can do in two ways.
      1) Call Reliance and tell them that don’t send any further messages, as you have ported to Idea. However, this will stop automatically after few days, once they refresh their database.
      2) Subscribe to NCPR (old DND) by sending SMS START 0 to 1909 from your mobile number, all unwanted commercial messages / calls will be blocked.

    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.
