Hi,I am about to launch a website in which we offer various sort of deals on products. We wanted to have a feature where we can message our subscribers the daily deal on their mobile. Since we need to ask for their mobile number on the registration form, I wanted to ask whether we can message them if they are on the DND list? Also how can I find out if they are on the DND list.The other day I enabled facebook mobile and even though I am on the DND list I was able to receive messages from them. Is it a legal practice or an illegal one?Any help is much appreciated.

It's not annoying because we will be asking for consent from the user before sending him the message, only if he decides to opt for deals on messages will this happen. Consumers who don't opt for it won't receive it. I think you will agree there is nothing sinister about it.
