Share to Friends

Whenever someone calls you and you were not with your phone at the time your phone rang, you will get a missed call alert as many times the person dialed your number. This feature is available in every telcomm you ever come across and it is known as the Missed call alert. Just the same way this works, do you know that if you are a subscriber to Safaricom, you can turn on a feature called “You Attempted to Call Me” or Caller Notification?

“You attempted to Call Me” is a feature when enabled will notify anybody that dials your number when it was switched off so that they can now call you back when your phone is back online. So, when your phone is switched off or Airplane Mode is turned on and your SIM is offline when someone calls you, their phone tells them your phone is switched off or not available. When you power ON your phone and your line is active, they will get a message informing them that your line is back online and they can call you now. The message is always written as “You attempted to call me, but I was not available. Please call me. Thank you.” The best part is that this feature is completely free.

In this article, I will explain how to activate the “I tried calling you” feature on Safaricom, i.e. activating Safaricom’s “You attempted to Call Me” feature.
