Way2SMS may be an advantage for many people to send messages anywhere without costs. However, this became headache for many when good service started being abused for marketing. It kept getting more and more worst. Some days back, TRAI took long awaited action related to DND (Do Not Disturb) on many services and made it mandatory to be followed. What a relief I said! 3rd Oct Monday, I received mail from Way2SMS appealing people to file request on TRAI website to remove this ban, at least for them. (pathetic)
My joy ended on 7th Oct (today). TRAI gave waiver to Way2SMS. Then I thought there must be something which can block all SMS from Way2SMS. Searched and found. It is on Way2SMS website – a separate DND only to block Way2SMS. They don’t tell it openly (it is funny looking link but it is correct). Here is the link and method to do it;
First make sure you already haven’t blocked Way2SMS. Go to above link and scroll down to “Block Messages from Way2SMS” (you can use first section to block particular number). Select Check. Enter your number and proceed. It will show you that you have blocked or not (as you are reading this I can say you haven’t).
Now, Click on “Block” and enter your number and proceed ahead. Enter the CAPTCHA verification and Proceed.
You will receive a 4 Digit code on your Mobile to verify the identity & request is genuine. Enter it in the box as shown.
Hit Submit. To get the result of request.
Done! You are free from this bad headache.
