MTN Caller Notify


Introducing MTN Caller Notify

It’s a fun, text-based service that lets you tell the people who are calling you what’s going on. Let them know your availability, mood and personality before you’ve even answered the call. The message will appear as a pop-up notification. It works similar to the way you update your status on BBM™, Facebook and Twitter.

So what can MTN Caller Notify be used for?

  • Advertising;
  • Sharing status updates;
  • Expressing yourself;
  • Sharing your special moments;
  • Sharing special messages to specific callers.
