Hello guys, nice of you to be back here for another article on Airtel Please call me service, and how to send please call me on Airtel line. In this article, I will show you various ways in which you can be able to send please call me to Airtel lines, and also how to send please call me from Airtel line to a Safaricom line.
What is Airtel’s Please Call Me Service?
Long ago, if you did not have credit on your phone to send a message or call someone else, it was very hard to get to communicate with your friends and relatives. Mobile operators in Kenya so that this was a disadvantage and decided to come up with a way in which a person could alert the other person on the receiving end to call them. How this works is that you dial a USSD code, and enter the number of the person who you want to communicate with.
The other person will receive a message telling them that you are requesting them to call you.
This service is particularly useful if you have zero balance to even flash someone. Other situations that this service can be used include;
- A student using a teacher’s phone to send a please call me to request to their parent.
- Sending a please call me to someone in case of an emergency
Some of the disadvantages of using this service during an emergency include the following;
- The recipient might not be able to read the message, especially if their phone is on silent mode or far away.
- The recipient might not have credit/airtime to call you back.
Because of this, I would recommend that you use services like reverse call. Click here, to read about it.
