    Spam sms's dont ever stop, its either one advert or the other. Although I haven't put my phone on DND so that is a big reason for me getting all these calls and sms's. I just keep forgetting to call up customer care for the DND service.

    Its important that you activate your DND service Neetu800, because otherwise you will always be getting lots of calls and sms's all day long......does this not annoy you?

    Yeh it does annoy me a lot, but its not like it happens all the time, I mean it does happen on a regular basis. Im at work from 9am till 5.30pm so my phone is on silent then, so im saved! Its the calls that come after that, even checking the missed calls is annoying.

    But for sure I will activate my DND, actually will do it now!
