Time to say goodbye to unwanted messages

May 1, 2012

It is indeed hopelessly annoying to get a useless SMS in the midst of a crucial business meeting, personal date or a casual family outing. With the little time in hand you want to enjoy every moment making it special and freezing it in your cherished memory forever. A distracting telemarketing message is the last thing you expect while you are just about to seal a new chapter of your life.

Don’t let the mess bother you anymore. Blocking irritating messages laden with offers and advertisements was never as simple.

If you have been a victim of spam SMS at any point in your life, now is the time to bid adieu to it once and for all.

The first step towards blocking these unwanted messages is to register on DND (Do Not Disturb) list.  You can register for the service by sending “Start 0” to 1909 or simply by calling on the number 1909. Registration process might take a few days.

The users of Android smartphones can install a free app titled SMS Blocker by Optinno. This app contains a filter which inevitably notices and blocks all spam SMS. If the messages don’t stop flowing in you can manually add the senders to a blocked “Blacklist.”

Don’t let these unwarranted messages ruin your mood and play spoilsport. Say goodbye to them, now!
