Activate MTN/Etisalat Do-Not-Disturb Feature To Stop Unsolicited SMS AndCalls

Following the NCC's (Nigerian Communications Commission) instruction to all telecommunications service providers in the country to roll out "Do Not Disturb" feature which would allow subscribers to the networks opt out from getting unwanted marketing text messages and voice calls.

Telecoms giants MTN and Etisalat has both launched the DND feature
on their platforms.
With the DND features, subscribers can opt out of whatever SMS and calls they would rather not receive.

Using The Do-Not-Disturb Feature ;

If you feel the need to stop annoying SMS and calls using the DNS feature.

> Text "STOP" without quotes to 2442 (Etisalat)

> Text "HELP" without quotes to 2442 (MTN) and you will be sent a choice list to choose from

NB : SMS is free

Select Codes For Particular Unwanted SMS And Calls :

> Banking, Insurance and Financial products : SMS 1 to 2442
> Real estate : SMS 2 to 2442
> Education SMS : 3 to 2442
> Health : SMS 4 to 2442
> Consumer Goods And Automobiles : SMS 5 to 2442
> Communication/Broadcasting/Entertainment /IT : SMS 6 to 2442
> Tourism & leisure : SMS 7 to 2442
> Sports : SMS 8 to 2442
> Religion : SMS 9 to 2442

This is definitely an awesome move by the NCC, personally I find it annoying when I am expecting something positive (bank alerts ⚠ 😁) and I get a silly SMS from my service provider instead.
