  2. When they pick their call, ask them to read out the phone number that appears on the caller ID. Alternatively, when they are right beside you, there is no need for them to answer the call. Just ask them to call out the number that calls them.
  3. You write down your MTN phone number, save it on your phone, or memorize it at once, depending on your choice.

Important notice: Be aware that this method only works if you have enough airtime on your line to make a call. If you’re low on airtime or you have no airtime at all, this method won’t work for you.
