  1. thanks a lot for providing the answer of my question How to activate DO NOT DISTURB on BSNL mobile?. There are number of advertisement calls and advertisement messages coming from bsnl company. Now i have send request to block such all unwanted advertisements from bsnl company.

  2. BSNL is good company but some advertisements coming to my mobile and thanks for the help to block such all messages by giving the details of DND (do not disturb) SMS sending process.

  3. it takes around 1 month to activate dnd on bsnl after port. I have ported from airtel to bsnl and then applied the dnd and it takes lot of time.

  4. bsnl is always disturbing me through sms and calls. Kindly help i want to stop unwanted advertisement sms and advertisement calls from bsnl to my mobile.

  5. I am using bsnl mobile sim and i want to block advertisement sms coming from bsnl named DM-eBayin, DM-ebayin etc. kindly help me to block such unwanted advertisement sms. How to do block

    • For blocking such advertisement sms from bsnl, you need to activate DND (do not disturb) to your sim card. If you activated the same, you will not get any advertisement sms and push sms to your mobile. Kindly go through the above post and activate dnd on bsnl.

  6. 1909 is not working. Even after sending SMS as “START 0” or “START0” to 1909 it FAILS.
    Also, calling to 1909 it hangs up always. Is this BSNL. Shame.

    • Yes recently BSNL fails in some times. But it works well. You can continue trying DND with that number.

      • I had tried to activate DND over six months ago and it still has not worked!
        Today (30/7/2016) I tried texting START 0 to 1909 and it fails every time!

        Bsnl should allow DND to be activated at a local office as well as online if they will not fix the 1909 service.

        All the people I know that use BSNL experience the same problem, could this be because BSNL has no intention of allowing activation of DND? It seems to me that this is the case and as usual money is at the root of it I suspect.

          • Yes, it was originally an airtel number and I changed to BSNL because they also would not activate DND. Perhaps it would be a good idea to change to another provider once more, if you cannot activate DND for me.
            Today I checked to see if my number was registered for DND one of your other addresses…it was, over 6 months ago! Then I sent START 0 to 1909 and received a reply which said “Dear subscriber, your request for option 0 is already active.”!!!!!

            I have never used any of the services that the unsolicited texts offer and I never will. They serve only to waste time.

            If you check my account you will see that before my DND registration I spent over 500rs each fortnight ( sometimes more) calling Europe. But since DND has not been activated I use my spouse’s airtel account to call europe and my phone is switched off most of the time so your company is losing most of my custom. Not a good way to run a company really is it?

            If you can help to stop these texts I would be grateful if not however, I will move to another provider & register a complaint with TRAI.

  8. I send SMS ‘START 0’ to 1909. Now they asking reply ‘YES’ or ‘NO’ for confirmation to ‘BV-DND’. But This time it’s failed to send when I try so many times!
