I felt it's necessary for me to post this article cos telecom operators have assumed the position of spammers and marketing experts.
Hardly can one have a peaceful 24hrs without getting those unwanted and annoying text messages
and calls from Telecom Service Providers.
I can testify to this because I'm a victim even everyone is.

If you are currently using an
MTN SIM and would like to
stop those annoying messages
usually from 35685, 33113,
35020, 33115 and the rest of
Simply send “stop” as a text message to “33111“.
This will successfully remove you from their campaign database irrespective of the type of phone you used in sending the text message.
What works for every other
Mobile Telecom Service

This set of solutions should work for you irrespective of your mobile telecommunication services
provider. The solution will look into; apps, tips and tricks to curb this annoying notifications.

I believe you guys should already be familiar with these frequent occurring numbers; 4100 (usually from mtn), 4040, 8888 (usually from glo) and 8181 (usually from airtel).
You need to take note of the numbers that is frequently used by the telecom services providers as you will be making use of it in the
proceeding step below .
Now that you have identified the numbers?
Now that you have figured out
the regular spammers, blocking them completely is the next thing. In this part of our tutorial, we are going to list out 3 successfully proven methods to blocking this numbers from calling or texting your sim.

1. By Using Apps:
This method will only work with smartphones, tabs and phablets.
It is done by installing
recommended mobile apps based on your mobile phone operating system.
For Symbian Users => There is NetQin Mobile Security 5.0
For Android => There is call
For iOS (iphones and ipad) – There is iBlacklist
For Blackberry => There is call
blocker pro & Call Control too
I'll assume that by now you've installed the
proper apps based on your
mobile operating system, you
need launch and locate the
blacklist options, then add all the
offending numbers to the
blacklist and save.
2. By Using Apps with support:
for Auto-blacklisting and
Community Blacklist features
If you aren’t using your number for bank related activities, installing and activating this kind of apps should be the best option for you as it will block all private text messages, anonymous
calls and SMS or calls from short code numbers and/or unknown sources.
Calls and Messages from
Spammers,telemarketers, debt collectors, marketers, politicians, advertisers and other unsolicited calls’ offenders will be automatically blocked when this feature is turned ON.
There are fewer apps with
support for this feature for most mobile phone OS except for android that has a handful of such already including call blocker and Mr Number.
3. By Using the in-built phone
Most phones including phones that has the feature to
manually add numbers to your blacklist or “do not disturb” category.
For smaller Samsung Java, Chinese Phones, Most Nokia
and other feature phones that
comes with this option, the
settings can be found under
settings ==> phone ==>Calls ==> blacklist,
-screen list or
-“do not disturb”.
For Samsung Smartphones, Tecno Android , Gionee Android, HTC and other brands that comes with
this feature, the settings can be easily located by going to
contacts ==> click on the number you want to block (or manually create a group containing this disturbing numbers) ==> click for more options and locate reject
list or similar. For most android smartphones with this feature,
you can also tap and hold
the number you wanna block
from your call log list ==> select add to reject list or similar.
That's all... I hope that this post was very informative and educative? Please we welcome your comments if you have any question.
