How to Send a “Call Me Back” Message on MTN, Airtel, and Africell Uganda 2023

In this digital age, with the prevalence of social media and various messaging platforms, the classic “call me back” message may seem like a relic of the past. However, it remains a valuable tool, especially when you’re in a tight spot and need to convey an important message without available airtime. Mobile telecom companies in Uganda have retained this feature, and it can be incredibly handy. If you haven’t been using it, here’s how to send a “call me back” message on the popular Ugandan voice mobile networks.

MTN Uganda

MTN may be known for its mobile money services, but they also offer a “call me back” message feature. To access this service, follow these steps:

  1. Dial 160*5*7# to reach the welcome page.
  2. Reply with the phone number you wish to send the message to.
  3. Choose either the first option for a simple note message or the second option, which provides a list of pre-written messages.
  4. Keep in mind that MTN allows you to send only six “call me back” messages per day, so use it wisely.

Airtel Uganda

Airtel, with its nationwide 4G and now 5G coverage, offers a reliable “call me back” service. You can send an unlimited number of messages in a day. Here’s how to get started:

  1. Dial 100*10*8#.
  2. Enter the phone number to which you want to send the message.

Africell, known for its generous data bundles, also provides a “call me back” message service with a slightly more detailed and customizable message format. Here’s how to use it:

  1. Dial 100*2# and press OK.
  2. Follow the prompts to send a “call me back” message.

While the era of smartphones and instant messaging has transformed communication, the “call me back” feature remains a valuable and sometimes necessary tool. Give it a try on your preferred Ugandan mobile network, whether it’s MTN, Airtel, or Africell, and stay connected even when you’re short on airtime.
