You definitely at one point or the other might have found yourself in a situation where you are out of call credit and need to reach through to someone. I know some would say, why not use any of the bank’s USSD codes to recharge or even borrow from your ISP. As much as these could be saving alternative, what if your bank’s USSD wouldn’t work and are not eligible to borrow from your ISP? That’s where using the Airtel Call Me Back code comes in handy.

The Call Me Back code was first introduced into Nigeria by MTN, and since then, all other network providers have incorporated this service code into their networks of which Airtel is one of them.
