MTN DND aka Do Not Disturb allows MTN customers to opt out of receiving promotional messages for 3rd Party services (Bulk SMS, VAS promos, etc.). This does NOT include promotional messages from MTN though. So, if you’re expecting all those unsolicited MTN messages to stop after activating full DND on your MTN line, you are on a long thing…
The service will feature the following:
- Fully Blocked mode allowing customers to Opt Out totally from receiving promotional messages via SMS and IVR.
- Partially Blocked mode allowing customers to filter service categories for promotional messages they wish to receive. Any category not selected is blocked.
The service is FREE and you can perform different DND activities via the MTN DND shortcodes (2442)
A customer will be able to perform the following DND activities via SMS :
- View Status
- Activate full blocking
- Activate partial blocking
- Opt out of DND
Simply text HELP to the short code 2442 to find out more or visit the MTN dnd portal at : https://donotdisturb.mtnonline.com:8081/vasportal
