How to send a “Please Call Me” message with Vodacom in South Africa:

Two Easy Methods to Send a “Please Call Me” on Vodacom:

Method 1: Using USSD Code (Simple and Free)

This is the most common and convenient way to send a “Please Call Me” on Vodacom.

  1. Open the phone app on your Vodacom mobile phone.
  2. Dial the USSD code:140 followed by the recipient’s phone number #.
    • Example: If the recipient’s number is 072 345 6789, dial 1400723456789#.
  3. Press the “Send” or “Call” button on your phone.

Method 2: Using My Vodacom App (Optional, Requires Data)

If you have the My Vodacom app downloaded on your phone with an active data connection, you can also use it to send a “Please Call Me” message.

  1. Open the My Vodacom app on your phone.
  2. Login to your Vodacom account (if required).
  3. Locate the option for “Please Call Me” or similar wording (might vary slightly depending on the app version). It might be under “Airtime & Bundles” or a dedicated “Please Call Me” section.
  4. Enter the recipient’s phone number.
  5. Send the request.

Important Notes:

  • The “Please Call Me” service is free to use on Vodacom.
  • The recipient will receive a message stating, “The Vodacom subscriber at [your phone number] requests you to call back.” There might be an additional message with a visual advertisement depending on your settings.
  • This service is intended for situations where you don’t have enough airtime to make a regular call.
  • The recipient is responsible for initiating the call back.

Additional Tips:

  • You can send “Please Call Me” messages to any mobile network in South Africa, not just Vodacom.
  • Consider including a brief reason for requesting a call back in the message itself (if using the app method and it allows customization). This can help the recipient decide whether to call you back right away.
