Opt-out service launched for UAE subscribers.
Do marketing calls from telecom companies annoy you? Well, UAE has launched a new service enabling residents to block such calls.
Promotional calls from Etisalat and du to their subscribers – alerting them of new offers – can get irritating after a point, especially if the calls arrive during the day at work or when one is sleeping.
UAE’s TRA is now offering the option to block such calls from telecom giants.
TRA issued a brief statement on social media explaining the process.
If you do not wish to receive calls about offers and promotions from Etisalat, text ‘DNC’ to 1451. For du, send a blank SMS to 5293.
