DO NOT DISTURB: ETISALAT, AIRTEL AND MTN RELEASE CODE TO STOP RECEIVING UNWANTED SMS

 

NCC mandated all Telecommunication companies in Nigeria to create an opt-out code for unsolicited messages. I too have always found it hard to understand why I will receive a 3rd party SMS at the middle of the night. Based on NCC request, MTN, Airtel and Etisalat have started sending their customers the needed codes, which will allow them to opt-out from receiving unsolicited marketing messages and calls.

 RECOMMENDED

To stop receiving unsolicited MTN SMS in full or partially, all you need to do is
 TEXT: HELP TO 2442
For Etisalat, you will need to
TEXT: STOP TO 2442
But with Etisalat, you cannot partially stop receiving SMS. It is either you are in or you are out.
For Airtel, all you need to do is:
TEXT: HELP TO 2442
And you will be logged out of all unwanted message notifications.

I am sure that the code – 2442- applies to other Telecommunication companies in Nigeria like Glo and Airtel. I will get you updated with the processes for stopping other networks too.
