DND is an acronym for "Do Not Disturb". DND is a service that allows customers opt-out of receiving receiving promotional messages for Third Party services (Bulk SMS, VAS promos, etc).
It is very possible that some of those numbers are active under the DND policy. Presently, we can deliver your messages to MTN DND numbers; however, Glo and Airtel numbers that are DND active are undeliverable.
By default bulk messages sent to MTN numbers is charged at 2 units because of the "Do Not Disturb" (DND) policy. There is an option to revert to 1 unit, but SMS to MTN DND numbers may not be delivered.
In order for messages to get delivered to MTN DND, the sender name has to be changed to “rNotify”. This is peculiar to MTN DND numbers because only the rNotify sender name is approved for bulk SMS.
