YO! It’s quite normal for one to run out of airtime and may not be able to recharge at the moment.

It happens. And has happened to me times without a number as at then, when I have no idea how to recharge from my diamond account.

It’s really funny and I wish I never spent my precious money on airtime just to send SMS on MTN. But I won’t have to worry right? It was all about being unaware.

And yeah, you are so lucky to be here coz in a very short time; I will be showing you the trick I personally use to send SMS for free on MTN as of now.

It’s all about some codes.

Also bringing to your notice that this service was officially launched by MTN some time ago, so you have nothing to worry about. It won’t be canceled anytime soon.

But just before I reveal them to you, I’d like to let you know that to send free SMS on MTN, it is either you want the person to call you or you want to pass a different message to someone.


So you can really see that this trick is divided into two.

  1. The “Please call me” service. And
  2. Your usual intentional SMS.

And below are the steps to send free SMS on MTN.


There are two methods I use to send SMS for free using MTN. Check them out below…


This one is simple and I use it almost every time I’m short on airtime.

Actually, how I normally do it is –

  • Open my Android Dialer App.
  • Type in *133*Recipient number#
    My old method of sending free sms on mtn asking someone to call me.

And that’s it. The person will receive my text and call back.

But wait; hope you know what recipient means. The person you are sending the text message to. And can also be called the Receiver.

And now, it is no more as simple.

Below is how to ask someone to call you currently…

  • Kindly Open Dialer App on your device.
  • Type in *133# and send. A menu will pop up.
    New mothod of sending free sms on mtn asking someone to call me back.
  • Now, type in the number you want to send to. 
  • Tap send. Another menu will come up.
  • Now select your preferred choice. (call me, please call me, I love you, I need your assistance, blah blah blah.
  • Now Send. 
  • After that, you should see a successful message like below…
    You have successfully sent free sms on mtn asking someone to call you.

You can clearly see that the steps are similar.

The first one can be easier to copy and paste recipient number on dialer but the current please call me service is different. You will have to either cram receivers’ number or write it down somewhere so you don’t have to forget.

No matter what! Both are simple right? Since it’s all free SMS.


So the above steps are how to send free SMS on MTN to MTN asking the recipient to call you back.

Now let’s see how to send informational SMS for free on MTN.


This one is simple as well

Or do I say; it is far easier than the other.

Don’t need any app to power your message to be sent for free. All you have to do is to…

  • Open your Messaging App the same way you use it in sending normal SMS.
  • Type your message
    It is time to type you free sms

Now in the section where you are asked to add receiver’s number,

  • Just add “38708” before “receiver’s number” e.g. “3870808034465758”
    The receiver here, is the person you sending free sms to
  • Then Send.

You are good.

And that’s all you need to send free SMS on MTN.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Above steps only works with MTN to MTN line. You can see how to send unlimited SMS for free on any network here.

Also, make sure you send free SMS on a 0.00kb account balance to avoid deduction from MTN.
Hope you know them sha…

In conclusion

Sending free SMS is simpler than you think.

Like you call and text on a regular basis. You can as well send free SMS as an MTN user.

And as I have stated earlier, you can either send free SMS on MTN by asking someone to call you back as you are short on credit or send personal information to someone all for free.

Believe me; if you follow the above steps you will be able to send free SMS on MTN anytime, anywhere.

Do you have an alternative? Which other way do you currently use to send SMS for free? Do you find this post helpful?
