Zong to Charge Missed Calls Alerts

Missed calls alerts is a service which allows Mobile phone users to get SMS notification of missed calls in case mobile was switched off/ out of network coverage, busy or no reply.

Miss Call Alerts can be very handy, particularly, if you don’t afford to miss each incoming call on your cell phone.

Zong MCA (Missed call alerts) service was also free till today. As Zong has decided to charge this service at Rs. 10 plus tax per month. Following message confirms the imposition of charges,

Dear Customer Missed call alerts service will be [email protected]+t/month from 25th March 2010. Reply with ‘N’ to opt out of service to avoid auto charging. Sender +678

Sad to see that Zong MCA, being a paid service now.

Other than Telenor, all cellular companies are charging Miss Call Alerts. We hope Telenor won’t follow the lead.

  • Telenor Prepaid customers would be charged Rs. 50 (plus tax) for the activation of MCA service. However, this is one time charge and there are no further charges on receiving missed call alerts. For post paid customers, the activation of this service is free of cost.

    • i agree and doctors should not charge for care for a patient as eveyone needs one and uses one. Medical drugs should be free, taxis should be free, electricity should be free, gas should be free, water should be free, food should be free, white goods should be free, cars should be free, school books should be free, ……….. But they NOT so pay UP !!!
