          Hello Dharmesh,

          Since 29th Sep’11, you have given activation request for 5 times & 3 times for deactivation.
          Currently you are subscribed to NCPR (old DND) and it is very much active.

      Hello Ajoy Kumar,

      Try 2 things:- 1) Send SMS START0 to 1909. (without space between START & 0)
      2) Call 1909 and choose to activate DND / subscribe to NCPR.

    My phone number 9582040049 is in the DND list for quite a long time now. However, I am still receiving promotional calls everyday. Why is this so?
    I contacted the vodafone cust care. they asked to provide the phn number which I did. then tey asked which company was the message from?? Now, do I write each and every detail of the call when it comes??? Do you expect me to have soo much time and patience to do this??
    This is not fair!!

    I tried sending an SMS on 1909 in the correct format but got an error stating – “Error Page. There is some internal error occured in the system. Please try after some time”. For starters, they need to check on the grammar of the message they are sending to the service users. Secondly, I haven’t seen the 1909 service to be functioning since atleast -34 months now. I tried calling 1909 from my Vodafone connection and on selecting the language and selecting 3 to lodge a complaint the IVRS tells me that it is an invalid attempt. It appears no one is serious and DND has become a false hope and a joke. I’m getting 3-4 calls from banks, brokers, educational institutions everyday and it is an utter waste of time. I’m a DND member (fully blocked) since long but haven’t seen any effect.

        Hi,

        Delhi/NCR is my region. I tried to send the message in exactly the format that used to work until 4-5 months ago. COMP TEL NO xxxxxxxxxx;dd/mm/yy;hh:mm; short description of unsolicited communication

        4 messages today again fr investment in property, 1 call from a broker asking me for stock investment and 2 calls from HDFC and Standard Chartered for personal loan and home loans respectively. This is the new norm of being bugged that too for a subscriber which is in the fully blocked category since a long time!

        Thanks,
        Saurabh

    I’ve tried registering by sending an sms. Start 0 to 1909.

    I got a reply saying that the process is underway and I will receive a confirmation soon. Ironically, I’ve started receiving more calls and sms from advertisers after I registered. No updates so far from Vodafone.

      Your mobile is subscribed to NCPR / DND and since you have changed to full block preference on 03rd June’13, hope you are not getting unwanted call / SMS anymore from then.

      Hello Suhani,

      There are two ways:

      1) If you have Smart Phone to use Apps, there are many apps available which blocks specific telephone numbers to call you. Search in your Apps store.
      2) Take help of your local police.

    I did mobile number portability 2 weeks back from airtel to vodafone . i registered to fully blocked category but sometimes i get sms.Also now i am not getting sms from banks regarding credit/debit. Kindly help. As per dnd, banks are not covered in fully blocked category so there should have been no problem.The trai website http://www.nccptrai.gov.in/nccpregistry/saveSearchSub.misc shows that my number is registered but in 2007 under fully blocked category and that my service provider is airtel.

      Hello Sanju,

      DND / NCPR will not block solicited (wanted / subscribed) communication like Bank alerts or insurance reminders.
      Kindly check with your bank to ensure that they are delivering your alerts on your mobile number, without fail.
      Also, raise a compliant with your services provider as well.
