Activate and Deactivate Internet using SMS
This tip shows how to activate/start or deactivate/stop internet service by SMS to service provider
Finally TRAI decided to provide a service that allows mobile customer to stop or start internet facility by single SMS or phone call.
Like this, if we don’t want internet facility, then it is very complex to deactivate by calling customer care. So many phone customers complained this problem to TRAI (Telecom Regulatory Authority of India) many times and now finally TRAI started a service to stop or start internet facility instantly by simple call or sms.
It is very simple to activate or deactivate internet service. There are two methods:
- Send SMS STOP TO 1925 to deactivate internet service or sms START to 1925 for activating internet.
- Call to 1925, select your language, press a number for activate/deactivate internet. Commonly 1 is for activation and 0 is for deactivation.
This is a great service by TRAI for all internet users especially for old mobile phone users.
