How to Stop Idea Cellular Data Notifications

·1 min

In order to save battery, smartphones don’t always keep “mobile data” connected. After some period of inactivity, the connection is put to sleep, and is periodically woken up. Idea Cellular got creative, and decided that people should be alerted about their data usage in a session everytime they disconnect from mobile data.

That is a problem. I used to get tens or sometimes hundreds of flash SMS messages in a day, telling me data usage, when I actually didn’t really want to keep knowing about data usage.

Here’s how to manage this data notification service.

  • Disable Notifications: Dial *121*46
  • Enable Notifications : Dial *121*45
  • Manually Check Data Usage: Dial *121*44
