Code to Activate Do-Not-Disturb (DND) Feature On MTN & ETISALAT

Last year, the Nigerian Communications Commission NCC mandated all mobile phone operators in the country to introduce a Do-Not-Disturb (DND) service to all customers. This is due to customers complaining receiving useless and unwanted adverts on their phone with them subscribing for it.

Sometimes, this unwanted sms comes with charges. With this directive, Telecom giant MTN and Etisalat launched their Do-Not-Disturb (DND) which I will be sharing with you today.
