This is to inform everyone that all Nigerian networks (MTN, GLO, Airtel, Etisalat and others) have by the directive of the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) activated full blocking mode for Do-Not-Disturb on some subscribers' numbers without even seeking their consent to do same.
Also, some subscribers have willingly activated the Do-Not-Disturb(DND) on their lines.
Consequently, some of your recipients that fall within the two scenarios described above will stop receiving your messages.
The immediate and simple solution to this problem is for you to inform your recipients to contact their respective networks to remove their numbers from the Do-Not-Disturb list or they can attempt it by themselves by texting the word "ALLOW" to the short code 2442.

We on our part are monitoring developments on this new phenomenon and will keep you posted has the implementation of the policy unfolds.
In the meantime, Nigeria SMS Depot will continue, as always, to do everything possible to deliver your messages to all your valid and reachable numbers.
