How To Send A Please Call Me
Welcome to my blog post on "How to send a Please Call Me". If you are new to the concept of Please Call Me, it is a term used to describe a feature available on most mobile telecommunications networks in Africa, that allows a subscriber to send a free message requesting that the recipient call back.
Sending a Please Call Me
To send a Please Call Me on most African networks, simply dial the specific code pertaining to your service provider and follow the prompts that appear on your screen. The codes differ depending on the network and region, below are the specific codes for each of the four mobile networks:
To send a Please Call Me on MTN Nigerian network, simply dial *131*recipient number# and hit the send button. Additionally, if you are not sure of the number of the person you wish to send the Please Call Me to, you can dial *133# and follow the prompts that appear on your screen.

Please Call Me Etiquette
While Please Call Me messages are meant to be useful and helpful, repeated or excessive use can be irritating to the recipient, and in some cases may be considered as harassment. It's important to use the service judiciously, and only when it's truly important. In some cases, calling the person directly or using another mode of communication may be more effective and considerate.
Sending a Please Call Me message is a simple and effective way to request a call from someone when you cannot directly reach them. Knowing the specific code for your mobile network can save you time and hassle when you need to use the service. However, remember to use the service respectfully and sparingly, to avoid annoying the recipient.
