How to Send a Please Call Me on Cell C CodeUnit 01 JUN 2011

A callback, or rather Please Call Me as it has come to be universally known in South Africa, is a rather nifty concept that allows you to send a free SMS to any other Cell C customer asking them to call you back, usually because you don’t have any money on your phone – or are to cheap to use any of your own precious airtime!

Cell C allows each customer five Please Call Me SMS messages per day, and to send is actually pretty simple.

All you have to do is dial *111*cellphone number# (where ‘cellphone number’ is the friend’s phone you want to contact) and a Please Call Me SMS will automatically be delivered to the relevant person at no cost to you.

If you are on the Cell C mobile phone network then it is a pretty simple task to check your remaining airtime if you are a prepaid (or even a contract) customer via their nifty little balance enquiry feature.

For prepaid or contract subscribers, simply dial 140 from your cellphone to hear an update on your remaining airtime or SMS bundle. Alternatively, dial *147# and select option 3 or as a last resort SMS ‘bal’ or ‘balance’ to 14302 and Cell C will automatically send you a SMS containing your remaining aiairtime, balance, check balance, mobile phone, mobile network, cellphone, cell crtime balance.

And how nice of them, all these options are free.

Nice :)
