In this post, I am going to teach you how to simply stop all those annoying promotional messages from third-parties using Airtel DND (Do Not Disturb) service.
What is the Airtel DND (Do not Disturb) Service all about?
DND (Do-Not-Disturb) is a free service which allows Airtel users to opt out of receiving third-parties promotional messages such as Bulk SMS, VAS promos, etc.
