At last MTN launched a code that will allow its users opt out of all the Unsolicited SMS messages that pops in their phone, funny enough most of this sms are what users actually doesn't subscribe for. But thanks to NCC for issuing an order to all Telecommunication companies in Nigeria
on the need to create a code for users to opt out Unsolicited SMS.
