Rules of Using MTN Callback

This service is limited i.e. not unlimited and not like a flowing river. To avoid this free feature from getting abused, MTN puts some measures in place, these rules and measures are listed below:

  • The maximum number of ‘please call me back’ SMS you can send in a day is 5 within 24 hours.
  • This means that for a week, you can only use it 35 times.
  • Now, the rule does not say daily limit, it simply says 24 hours. For example, if you use your call me back SMS within 2 hours e.g. between 8am-9am, you will have to wait till the next day, starting from 8am. So it does not mean that it will last you till evening.
