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.

Republic of India's sustained discrimination of Hindus

Republic of India has been independent for over 70 years now. Ever since 1947, and particularly since 1950 many Governments have come and gone. The Constitution of India has been amended. By over 370 times and counting. The name of the nation has also changed. From the simple 'Republic of India' it was changed to the 'Secular Sovereign Socialist Democratic Republic of India' for reasons best known to the then ruling elites. Few policies have remained unchanged or unchallenged regardless of the different Governments, political parties, emergencies and so on.

That is the systematic institutional and legal discrimination of Hindus.

Sounds surprising?

And yes, BJP fanboys - you are just as guilty if not more. Let me explain why.

There are plenty of laws, rules and regulations that this marvellous Republic of ours has given us. Learning about the laws that govern our lives require us to take a Law degree. Literally. The Constitution that we are bound to live by is somethin…

Fallen - Based on a true story (almost)

A group of young guys had gathered around a lifeless body on the road. A minivan had just hit a girl and sped off. The girl bounced on the road and rolled around once and came to a stop. The rest of the girls on the street scattered. A couple of guys came to check on the girl. A crowd gathered and collected what little valuables she had left with her.

A girl saw it all from her second floor window on Sheil road, Liverpool. Natalie was aware of the hazards of what she used to do. She knew the roads were dangerous, especially at night. But then, day or night - she was never truly safe. Her escape was only in heroin. She did not dare to build a world of her own by her own means. She tried before. It never worked out. So she had transferred the responsibility to what society calls ‘substance’. Heroin gave her a cushion, her sleep and let her keep her sanity. Or so she used to think.

Natalie was alone. Her addiction was not. It came with dependence, depression, homelessness and rejection. He…

A Good Day

I have a beautiful small house in the hills. It is about 3 km from Manali, in Himachal Pradesh. It is not much. Probably calling it a cottage is stretching it too far. I have got a couple of bedrooms, a small drawing room cum kitchen where we dine as well. There is storage and a small garage that is mostly empty. I have got another small room with just a single bed and a study built on the first floor. It is just about ten feet by ten feet but it has got a retractable ceiling and a wall made of glass with the rest of the roof being something of a balcony. This is the place where I like to spend most of my time. x

In the front, there is a garden with some flowers in the front and trees lining the boundary wall. My mother has planted a few vegetables in the back that we regularly use in the kitchen. We mostly require only rice and eggs from the market.

A typical day starts with me waking up and going for a morning stroll. I often spend my nights in the room on the roof. So the first thing…
