Airtel Start Stop Service 121 – Activate or De-activate Premium Services

Airtel has introduced Start / Stop Service which provides Airtel customers an easy & instant way to activate or de-activate any Value Added premium service of their choice under one window of Interactive SMS session by sending SMS to the toll free number 121.

Airtel Start/Stop service enables you to view and manage all your Value Added Service service through an interactive SMS session. You can reply to the SMS with the number against the service which you wish to START or STOP. The Airtel Start / Stop service works from your pre-paid as well as your post-paid connection.

There is no cost to view the services under the Start & Stop menu, however to subscribe to any of the service under the Start menu, you’ll be asked to confirm your choice after the applicable charges have been mentioned. To Stop a service there is no cost.

The Airtel Start Stop service works from all mobile phones. For GPRS enabled services, Airtel live needs to be activated.

If the customer sends START to 121, then the service checks for all the subscription services not subscribed by the customer & presents those services through an interactive menu with numerical replies.

If the customer sends STOP to 121, then the service checks for all the services subscribed by the customer & presents them to the customer for further action.

To subscribe to a service or unsubscribe from a service, the customer has to reply to the menu message with the number mentioned against the service. Once the system receives a response from the customer, a confirmation is sought to avoid any confusion, post which a service is Started or Stopped. You will receive a confirmation message confirming the activation / deactivation of the service.

The popular services under Start & Stop option are:

  • Hello Tunes
  • Missed Call Alert
  • On Demand Services
  • Friends chat
  • Cricket packs
  • Astrology on Demand
  • Phone Backup
  • News / Devotional alerts / Jokes / Sports, Tips

Once you start the SMS session, the gap between your responses should not exceed 5 minutes. If you exceed this time limit, you’ll have to initiate the session again by sending Start or Stop.

You can Start or Stop only one service at a time. To activate / deactivate another service you will have to send start or stop to 121.

Every service has its own activation & deactivation time. This is mentioned in the confirmatory SMS you will receive.

My love affair with ThinkPads

I had never used a ThinkPad in my life till 2018. To be honest, I did not really see the benefit of using them anyway. Consumer series laptops (with plastic bodies) were the ones that I had always used before. Then I was introduced to the rugged looks of the T60 and T61 original IBM ThinkPad designs that came out way back in 2004 or so. And I loved it. Finding a ThinkPad that old did not appeal to me. I was impressed with the smaller compact X series laptops and decided to have either an X230 or an X220. Both of these are fairly similar and were launched about 8 years back. But they still sport good processors, plenty of memory upgradability, provision to add a maximum of three hard disks and a decent battery backup to boot. My reasons to get this were simpler -  They are rugged, I like to use my laptops well Memory is not soldered. There are plenty of options to upgrade. The keyboards are probably the best in the world. Why not get the latest ThinkPad? Again, simple.  They come with a

Reaching the peaks of my own stupidity or not

 I have never considered myself to be particularly intelligent. Though I have not had myself clinically diagnosed, anecdotal evidence and day to day activities amply demonstrate how stupid I am. Now wait. This does not mean I am indulging in self pity.  No. Far from it. I have had successes in life. I continue to do well in things that I love to do. I have no complaints there. It is just that I do feel my intelligence lacking. My success is, therefore, despite my stupidity and I take some pride in it. Of course defending the statement - 'I am stupid' is difficult. Especially without a test that ascertains the fact for certain. I will make a more nuanced statement as a result. I have less intelligence than the average person around me. That is a more defensible stance and there are tests (even other than IQ) to confirm it. Aptitude tests are a good example. I do horrible in them.  Okay, there is an exception - I got into IITB. But that was me trying for a third time. In any case
