The MTN Missed Call Notification (MCN) service is a new feature from MTN Nigeria that allows you get missed call notifications of everyone when your phone was offline, out of service area or switched off. Once the phone is active, or just turned on, you will receive an SMS which will inform about the phone numbers that tried to reach you, the number of attempts and the time and date of the most recent call. This service is available to all old and new MTN customers. This service does not require airtime before subscribing to it, and all notifications are FREE via SMS. The messages are valid for two days from the date of the missed call.
However, it is no surprising as other networks like Etisalat and GLO have already been running this service in Nigeria. Although, MTN has been running this service in other countries with a different name as MTN Missed Call Alert (MCA).
