It's no longer news that the Nigerian Communication Commission (NCC) mandated the telecommunication operators in Nigeria to implement Do-Not-Disturb (DND) starting from July 1, 2016. Since then, there has been an alarming general issue with major GSM Networks (MTN, Airtel, Glo, 9Mobile) in Nigeria not delivering bulk SMS to some mobile phone numbers. This issue is as a result of the introduction of the Do-Not-Disturb (DND) service by the GSM Network operators in Nigeria which allows their customers to opt-out of receiving promotional messages for 3rd Party services (Bulk SMS, VAS promos, etc.)
While this development seems rosy for some customers who do not want to receive promotional messages for 3rd Party services (Bulk SMS, VAS promos, etc.), it's also a dejected one for major customers who are willing to always get important updates for their job interviews, Church announcements and many more. In this guide, I'm going to show you how to send bulk SMS to Do-not-Disturb (DND) numbers for all GSM networks in Nigeria.
