How to send a “Please Call Me” message with MTN in South Africa:

Method 1: Using USSD Code (Simple and Free)

This is the most common and convenient way to send a “Please Call Me” message on MTN.

  1. Open the phone app on your MTN mobile phone.
  2. Dial the USSD code: 121 followed by the recipient’s phone number#.
    • Example: If the recipient’s number is 083 123 4567, dial 1210831234567#.
  3. Press the “Send” or “Call” button on your phone.

Method 2: Using MTN Mobile App (Optional, Requires Data)

If you have the MTN mobile app downloaded on your phone with an active data connection, you can also use it to send a “Please Call Me” message.

  1. Open the MTN mobile app on your phone.
  2. Login to your MTN account (if required).
  3. Locate the option for “Please Call Me” or similar wording (might vary slightly depending on the app version).
  4. Enter the recipient’s phone number.
  5. Send the request.

Important Notes:

  • The “Please Call Me” service is free to use on MTN.
  • The recipient will receive a message stating, “The MTN subscriber at [your phone number] requests you to call back.”
  • This service is intended for situations where you don’t have enough airtime to make a regular call.
  • The recipient is responsible for initiating the call back.

Additional Tips:

  • You can send “Please Call Me” messages to any mobile network in South Africa, not just MTN.
  • Consider including a brief reason for requesting a call back in the message itself (if using the app method and it allows customization). This can help the recipient decide whether to call you back right away.
