I tried calling you a missed call alert message is notification callers to show who tried to call them when unreachable.
“You attempted to call me, but I was not available. Please call me. Thank you.” Once your phone goes off or is out of network reach, this is the message that anyone who calls you gets immediately you get connected to the network.
To resolve these missed connections (as well as recover the unspent airtime), Safaricom introduced the Missed Call Alert service a few years ago. Similar services are also now available in both Telkom and Airtel Kenya.
What is a Missed Call Alert?
As the name suggests, this service sends an alert in the way of an SMS to a person from a caller that tried calling them when they were unreachable. However, one can also set to block all calls and get missed call alerts to see who’s trying to call them while being reachable.
