Abbreviated version of: 'No need to reply'
When sending a text (SMS) message to a friend ie "I'll be there in 5 minutes, NNTR"
"No Need To Reply". Used mainly at the end of a text message when you send a text message to someone and they would normally text back with "OK" or "k" or "allright". Used so that when they normally would respond with "ok", it will save you the trouble of getting another text message or looking at your phone that will say "ok"
