Here Is The Easy Money-Making Trick Everyone Is Talking About! Learn More Here!
Even though the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) has urged network subscribers to end unsolicited messages by the Value Added Services (VAS) providers and network providers, customers are still getting these annoying SMSs.
Most often, the VAS providers and network forcefully sent unsolicited messages and marketing calls to customers that they did not request.
Whereas NCC made provision of a shortcode to protect the right of consumers to freely choose the services they desire, yet, MTN, GLO, Airtel, and 9Mobile have refused to adhere.
NCC code to stop unwanted messages
To stop unsolicited messages, use the do not disturb code of 2442 by typing ‘STOP’ and sending to 2442, to stop all unsolicited messages.
Or send ‘HELP’ to the same code and follow the prompts to choose the options of the types of messages you want to receive.
You can also send ‘STATUS’ to 2442 to see if your choices have been implemented.
Nigerians can also use the 112 toll-free lines provided by the commission in any event of an emergency.
The number is easy to remember and toll-free to reach any first responders they want to call.
You can also use the number to call Police, Road Safety, Fire Service, Ambulance and Health authorities.
NCC is obviously determined to protect the rights of customers of telecommunication companies in the country.
