Airtel Telecom has the largest user base as compared to other telecom companies after Jio. Like other telecom companies, Airtel also gives a lot of push messages to its users to promote their offers and services. Hence users have to face many spam calls and messages.
So how can you get rid of these annoying spam calls and messages? Unfortunately, there is no way to get rid of it permanently, but there are some ways to reduce it. Users can use some third-party applications to intercept these spam calls and messages.
Another way to fix this annoying spam is to use the DND mode that comes with the latest smartphone. DND mode allows users to disable notification and block popup call interface when using any application. But the biggest drawback of this feature is that you cannot specify calls and messages. So if you turn on DND mode, you will not get any information whether it is important or not.
The most commonly used method to intercept these annoying messages is the DND (Do Not Disturb) service that Airtel provides.

Airtel’s DND helps you to stop unwanted commercial spammy phone calls and SMS on your Airtel Mobile. To avoid unwanted telemarketing calls or SMS, you have to register your telephone number in Airtel’s Do Not Disturb registry.
