One other message received by me was related to blocking all telemarketing communications. It is the most wanted feature as people are quite annoyed by too many calls and messages by telemarketing companies.

To block telemarketing communication, register your number on Do Not Call Register (DNCR). For this, you need to type “reg” from your mobile number and send it to 3627.
Later on, if you want to allow these companies to message you, you need to type “unreg” and send it to 3627.
