How to Use

You can make a collect call using one of the following ways:

1.  By dialling *132*05xxxxxxxx# where 05xxxxxxxx is the number of the called person

2.  By dialling 132 and following the instructions

For both the methods above, the receiver will first be requested to either accept or reject the call. Upon accepting, the call will then be connected.


The service is free of charge. However the called party will be charged according to his/her normal applicable tariff plan that he/she has subscribed to.
