Personalise a message to callers before you answer the phone
This text-based service lets you customise a message that appears on a caller's
screen as a pop-up notification while waiting for you to answer. Use it like a social
media status update, to let people know you're not available, or to advertise your
business – it's really up to you.
Setting up MTN Caller Notify with a regular subscription gets you one free message
update per day, with additional updates charged at 50c each.
A daily subscription costs R1 (valid for 24 hours), a weekly subscription costs
R5 (valid for seven days), and a monthly subscription costs R10 (valid for 30 days).
You can update your messages as often as you like for the duration of your subscription's
