Thanks for visiting Capital Advisor.

For context, I suggest that you read my earlier post It Takes 45 Days To Add One Phone Number To A Database first.

Now, reader Shridhar writes in with his Do Not Call (DNC) registration woes:

Yesterday, I registered – via SMS and the online facility – for DNC through Hutch. Till date (08-Sep-2007 13:40 PM IST),they have sent me 45 SMS saying “your service will be activated in 45 days.” SMS flooding is continuing. I calculate that I will get 80 SMS per day till this 45-day limit is reached. Totally fucked up. Hutch is worst.

Have you had better luck with Hutch?

I managed to mess around with Airtel’s online implementation of the Do Not Call registration mechanism. The damn thing used to think that “Stop” meant “Start” and vice versa, but they’ve set it right now. I’ve generated so many reference numbers that I don’t know which among them is the correct/valid one. I guess I’ll have to play the “I am on the DNC / I am not on the DNC” game with a rose in my hand.
