Let the Telenor Call and SMS Blocker make your life easy. Block all unwanted callers and messages with our subscription based service that stops any number (021-xxxxxxx, 042-xxxxxxx, 030x-xxxxxx, 033x-xxxxxx, 032x-xxxxxxxx, 034x-xxxxxxx) from calling or messaging you.

 

Once you block a caller, any call and SMS from that caller cannot reach you. Instead a prompt is played to the caller on call and they are also unable to reach you over SMS.

 

How to block calls and SMS:

You need to SMS 'sub' to 420 to get registered. Once you are registered, you will receive a confirmation SMS a few hours later.

NWD & IDD Subscription:

The service blocks incoming calls and Text Messages. It works on two access levels: Nationwide Dialing (NWD), International Direct Dialing (IDD). If you have International Roaming (IR) on your number, you have to change it back to NWD or IDD and then you can subscribe to this service.

Many people around you would need this service so why not share it on your social media pages! 

 

 

Can I block a number without getting subscription?

No. First you have to subscribe to the service, by sending an SMS with text 'sub' to 420. This will create your subscription. Once you are subscribed to the service, then you can block the numbers.

Do I have to renew my subscription every month?

You can choose to unsubscribe by sending 'usub' to 420 (Free of Charge). If you don't do anything, your subscription will be renewed & RS. 20 + tax will be charged.

What happens if my subscription expires & then I re-subscribe?

We maintain the list of your blocked numbers for the next seven (7) days.When you renew, you would not need to re-create the list of blocked numbers again.

What happens if I unsubscribe & then re-subscribe?

We maintain the list of your blocked numbers for the next seven (7) days. So if you choose to come back, you would not need to re-create the list of blocked numbers again.

What if I don't have sufficient balance at the time of subscription renewal?

  • Subscription renewal is automatically attempted after thirty days – you get a notification on 27th day.
  • On 30th day if you do not have the balance of more than Rs.24, the service is de-activated.
  • You would start receiving those annoying calls again.
  • For your convenience, until you unsubscribe, the subscription is attempted every night.
  • If you have the balance exceeding Rs. 24, subscription is renewed & all those annoying calls will be blocked again.
  • Once you are re-subscribed, you do not need to block the numbers again as the list of blocked numbers is maintained at the system even when your subscription is not renewed.
