How to activate missed call alert “You attempted to call me” on Airtel Kenya network

Once in a while, we all reach a point when for whatever reason we just need to be off-air for sometime and switch off our mobile phones or activate airplane mode. In such instances, mobile service providers in Kenya such as Safaricom and Airtel have implemented a smart way you’d still be alerted on a missed call, so you could decide whether to call back or ignore altogether depending on how important the caller is.

I remember a while back when an insurance agent for some reason kept calling during work time, sometimes while I was attending those tense work meetings and just couldn’t hold back from disconnecting the calls immediately. The problem was, the agent was so persistent I could get more than a dozen calls just in a span of two or three hours, something that led me to always be shutting down my phone or activate airplane mode whenever I was in a meeting. This is a perfect scenario on just have those missed call alerts could be a lifesaver.

The feature allows someone to be off-air but keeps them informed of whoever tried to call, with a simple text message. Safaricom has a similar feature that will send a text message “You attempted to call me but I was not available”. As long as you have an active SIM card on the airtel network, you can simply activate the “You attempted to call” of missed call alert (MCA) service with just a simple text message.  

How to activate missed call alert (MCA) “You attempted to call me” on Airtel Kenya network

  • On your airtel mobile phone, compose a new text message with “MCA
  • Then send the message to short code “555
  • For Voice mail services, send the word “VMS” to “555
