The DND (DO NOT DISTURB) is a service that allows customers opt-out of receiving unsolicited marketing messages and calls.

The DND comes in two features these are the full blacklist and the partial blacklist.The full blacklist allows customers opt out of all third party marketing messages while the partial blacklist allows customers opt out of specific third party service categories e.g. sports, religion, Entertainment etc.
