Do Not Disturb app finally made its way to the App Store over the weekend and can be now downloaded by iPhone users in India.
The app from Telecom Regulatory Authority of India will allow users to report telemarketing calls and messages. The app not only will help users report unwanted calls or messages to their respective telecom service providers but will also help identify telemarketing callers that haven’t registered themselves.
New TRAI DND app has two major functions – users can register their mobile number under DND (Do Not Disturb) using this app and second is reporting spam calls/ SMS after DND registration.
“Registration of mobile number under DND (Do-Not-Register) will take up to 07 days after putting the request with respective telecom service provider (TSP),” the App Store listing describes the app.
Talking about how will this app report calls/ SMS on your iPhone, the TRAI DND app will auto-create complaint registration message to send to respective telecom service provider. The Complaint registration SMS will be sent to toll free number 1909 once the user checks the content of the message. Users will also have to write additional feedback for better understanding of the reported number.
