The issue of getting unsolicited sales proposals are now reaching a very disturbing level. Before I go into the details, I should mention that it is a problem being faced by myself and probably by many more people but it may not be an International issue faced by others world over.
Although it was going on for quite some time (may be more than a year), these days the frequencies have reached alarming level. Almost daily I get lots of SMS’s and sometimes calls to my 3G connection, requesting me to subscribe to some kind of service.
These request come from different sources. Some are send directly by the phone service provider and some by other service providers with whom you might had to share you phone number in the past.
Solution to this troubling issue is to get registered to a service called as “DND registry”. If your number is registered there then you are safe from these issues.
