Making calls is an essential point to make when you own a fully registered SIMcard. However, from the time UCC phased scratch cards off the scene, getting airtime is a heavy task where you have to either use mobile money or a digital payment method like the PayWay wallet app.
So, sending a call me back message to someone you wish to contact is an essential move you’d always want to pull off. Airtel kickstarted the journey which was later borrowed by MTN to make it easy for customers to receive and make calls.
Among the few reasons why you’d send a call me back could be requesting for airtime to make direct calls. As a matter of fact, once you visit a remote village, your only hopes of getting airtime are through someone in town. So, here is how you can always send a call me back message on either Airtel or MTN in Uganda.
