DTH Updates : How To Prevent Misuse Of Landline?
<img style="margin: 0 0 0 10px; float: right;" src=""/>Soaring bills and yapping kids at home? Here's how to keep your BSNL landline under control

Working parents with teenage children are often found helpless when they get their monthly telephone bills, ranging from a Rs. 1,500 to even Rs. 7,000 in extreme cases.

Or maybe its the house-help who misuses the phone when you’re away, but you’re too cared to scold her for fear of driving her off. At times like those, the BSNL landline bill gives nothing short of a heart attack. When simple locking and grounding fails, here’s another way out to keep the phone safe.

The BSNL provides a subscriber controlled call barring and restoring service to its users, simple and efficient.

* For first time users, you need to register a 4 digit secret code ‘xxxx’ (0000 to 9999) with the exchange. Dial 123 xxxx xxxx and wait for an automated acceptance message that confirms registration.
* When provided with STD and Local calls, dial 124 xxxx 1 to lock STD only, 124 xxxx 4 to lock both STD and local, and dial 124 xxxx 3 to open all the calls.
* To lock both STD and ISD calls dial 124 xxxx 1, for ISD only dial 124 xxxx 3, for all types dial 124 xxxx 4, and dial 124 xxxx 0 to open all calls (if provided with ISD facility).
* To register a new code (yyyy) instead of the previous one, dial 123 xxxx yyyy and wait for the acceptance tone.
Speak to your customer care at 1500 for more such special facilities at the Electronic Exchanges in your landline.

Happy talking!
