It can be very annoying when your network provider continually send you irrelevant SMS. Most times after you have read and deleted the message, in no time you get SMS notification - you checked and see it is the same message you have read and deleted.
Due to the barrage of complaints on the menace of unsolicited message, The Nigerian Communication Commission (NCC) has swayed into action to allow customers choose what type of messages they want to receive from telecoms operators.
MTN, Glo, Etisalat, Airtel
Now you have the right to stop your network provider from sending you unsolicited messages. To opt out from receiving such SMS, send stop to the short code 2442. Depending on the network, you may get another message requesting you to take further actions.
