Mtn introduced a new pattern called notify me and who called.
This two services notifies you about the call you missed when your phone is switched off or out of coverage.
With MTN Who Called and Notify Me, MTN keeps you up to speed with calls you missed while your phone was switched off or unreachable while also sending you an SMS message when a number you could not reach becomes available.
The SMS message with information about calls you missed or numbers you could not reach will be sent to your mobile phone as soon as your mobile number becomes available or as soon as the number you attempted to call becomes available.
What are the benefits?
You can keep track of your missed calls.
You are always informed when a number you could not reach becomes available on the network.
It works even while you’re abroad.
Please note that:
You will not receive missed call alerts from callers who have withheld their caller identity.
You are not required to activate Voice Mail to use MTN Who Called and Notify Me services.
