If you regularly use bulk SMS, you might have noticed non-delivery of your messages to some phone numbers in recent times. This is due to implementation of the ‘Do Not Disturb’ service that Nigerian Communication Commission (NCC) mandated the telecommunication providers to implement. NCC issued a directive to the telecommunications service providers in the country that starting from July 1, 2016, they must activate the ‘Do Not Disturb’ (DND) facility which gives subscribers the freedom to choose what messages to receive from the various networks or face sanctions.

What that means is that when send you SMS to phone numbers on DND list, you will be billed but your messages will not be delivered. That is a great loss! But you can stop that henceforth.

Whether you know about it or not, the Nigerian Communication Commission (NCC) mandated the telecommunication operators to implement ‘Do Not Disturb’ (DND) starting July 1, 2016. This came on the foot of torrents of complaints submitted to NCC on the abuse of third-party SMS and unsolicited automated calls.

In line with the above, NCC issued a directive to the telecommunications service providers in the country that starting from July 1, 2016, they must activate the ‘Do Not Disturb’ (DND) facility which gives subscribers the freedom to choose what messages to receive from the various networks or face sanctions.

To remove your phone number from the DND list, you will need to text ALLOW to 2442. Despite this, it has been noted that some phone numbers that are not DND list are still not receiving third party SMS. This has been confirmed to be a glitch in the set up process by the telecommunication operators.

If you have been receiving bulk SMS sent to your phone by your religious organization, school, online store before July 1, 2016 but currently not receiving any, your phone number might have been added to the ‘Do Not Disturb’ (DND) list.

This means that if you are currently on DND, you will not be receiving third-party SMS. While this is a very welcome development due to the abuse of the third-party bulk SMS services, it also has its down-side.
