Spam messages have become a part of almost everyone’s life. A flood of spam messages, promotional texts have made life miserable of hundreds and thousands of people. A promotional message can be sent by anyone through SMS companies in less than Rs.500. Now we will tell our readers about how to block spam messages on their phones.
Till now there was no proper procedure to report or block these messages. However, the Pakistan Telecommunications Authority (PTA) has launched a system that will allow users to block and report spam messages.
It was announced by PTA through a message that users can now register their numbers with the ‘Do Not Call Register (DNCR)’. This will automatically block almost all the spam messages sent to your number.
The registration process on DNCR is quite simple. Type ‘Reg’ and send it to 3627. If you still receive spam messages than call your network provider and report the number. DNCR will register that number via PTA.
Now after registering with PTA, you want to unregister yourself for whatsoever reason you can do it by ‘Unreg’ and send it to 3627.
Call 0800-55055, if you receive spam messages even after registering with DNCR. Also, you can register your complaint via email at [email protected]
