The Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) had few months ago given all the telecoms operators in the country up to June 30 to switch on the 2442 code to allow any subscriber who does not want to receive unwanted messages from the operators bar such messages.

NCC’s Executive Vice Chairman, Prof Umar Garuba Danbatta, had told the operators in Abuja that effective date for compliance remained today.

You may not be able to receive sms from an MTN number if DND is enabled. So to check the status, text STATUS to 2442. To opt out of DND, text ALLOW to 2442.
