DND (Do not Disturb) – NCC new policy, what about it?

So we started having issues with delivery for some networks especially MTN and after some digging, it feels like a new feature called DND, asked to be activated by NCC by Operators is disrupting the Bulk SMS market. Read our last update about it here

So what is this DND?

Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC) has directed all Telecommunications Company (MTN, GLO, Airtel, Etisalat, etc.) to allow existing subscribers to opt-in to receive SMS on Telemarketing, including but not limited to Value Added Services, e.g. flight schedule, weather forecast etc. in conformity with Part 111, section 20 (2) of CCPR, while consent of new subscribers will be sought to opt-in at the beginning of the contract.

Some Operators like MTN NG have since implemented a Full Blocking mode for Do-Not-Disturb on some numbers without the consent of the subscribers on their network e.g myself in person on 08062741555 and you can imagine how frustrating it was to not receive all smsBAG updates and daily reports because of MTN.

The downside for our customers is that if you send an sms to a DND number, we might still charge you because we are charged for operator delivery not customer delivery. We apologize in advance, If you notice NOT_DELIVERED to some specific numbers in your list, Kindly tell them to check there DND status.

For MTN users, text STATUS to 2442 for your DND status, and Allow or STOP for full Allow or Full Stop. for other options, send HELP to 2442.

Thank you for your using smsBAG

MTN Nigeria Delivery Issues

To Our Esteemed Customers

We regret to inform you that we are currently experiencing delivery issues on the Nigerian MTN network. It was gathered that MTN has implemented a strict filter on incoming traffic, one that does not allow alphanumeric sender ID to be used.

To ensure delivery under such conditions, we will be automatically changing all senders for incoming traffic to a randomly generated numeric value.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused. Please let us know if you have further questions as we work to update you as soon as we have more information.

Thank you
