Do you know you can request a call from someone anytime you’re low on airtime if you send them a please call me message with your etisalat sim? Of course you can and you are going to see how to do that in this post, it’s very easy and also straight forward.
As we all know, 9mobile is one of the telecom service providers in Nigeria, they were formally known as etisalat before the rebranded their name to 9mobile. They have over the years provided good data plans and amazing services to help suit their customers’ needs.
One of those services is the “Please call me” service. This is a free service that allows you to request a call from someone by sending them a simple “Please call me back” message anytime you don’t have any airtime or credit on your etislat sim to call them.
This message is totally free of charge and can be very beneficial to you in times of urgency. You can always use this service anytime you’re not eligible or don’t want to borrow airtime, just send them “please call me” message and they’ll call you if they have airtime. So let’s quickly see how you can send a “Please call me” message using your etisalat sim to someone you want to talk to.
The please call me back message can only work on etisalat to etisalat, meaning you can only send this message to someone using n etisalat 9mobile sim. You can’t send it to an mtn, airtel or glo phone number, the number you’re sending it to must be an etisalat phone number.
Having known that, the code to send please call me on etisalat is *266#, when you dial that code you’ll be told to enter the recipient’s phone number (the phone number of the person you want to send the “please call me” message to).
After doing that, you’ll be asked to select the type of “Please call me” message you want to send to that person, you will see something like this below.
Please call me, thank you.
Please call me, I landed safely.
Please call me, I am now available.
Call me back, it’s an emergency
Select the number option attached to the message you want and press send. After doing that the person you sent the message to will receive it instantly and will call you if they have airtime.
Alternatively you can also send a please call me back message on etisalat using simple and shorter codes, instead of going through the above long process you can simply dial this below codes for any of the “Please call” messages above.
Dial *266*3*Recipient’s Phone Number# – Please call me, I am now available.
Dial *266*4*Recipient’s Phone Number# – Call me back, it’s an emergency
Hope you got what I did there? Example if you want to send ”Please call me, thank you” message to this phone number 07012345678, just dial; *266*1*07012345678#
Once you dial it, the person will receive the ”Please call me, thank you” message in their inbox and will call you if they have airtime but in some cases the person might not see the message in time or the simply might also not have airtime to call you, what would you now do in this case? Especially if you want to speak to them urgently.
I always recommend using the “9etisalat borrow me credit service”. This is a service that allows you to borrow airtime or credit from etisalat and then pay back later with your next recharge. This is much more reliable and can help you reach out to the person you want to talk to immediately without having to wait for them to call you which in some cases might not work.
So let’s quickly see how you can borrow airtime from etisalat and pay back later with your next recharge.
If you are eligible to borrow airtime on etisalat dial *665#, select borrow airtime and then select the airtime amount you want to borrow. Alternatively you can borrow airtime by dialing *665*Airtime amount#
Example if you want to borrow N100 dial *665*100# and your etisalat airtime account will be credited instantly with the airtime.
This borrowed airtime will be deducted in your next recharge and a 15% service fee will be charged for any airtime you borrow.
You can always borrow airtime and make urgent and important calls in case the ”Please call me back” message fails you.
That’s how to send a “Please call me” message on etisalat and how to borrow airtime on 9mobile, you can use any of those method to reach out to people you want whenever you’re low on airtime.
