Q: What is prepaid?A:
A Prepaid customer pays for the usage of the network before they start to use it, i.e. once you have bought a BTC Top Up you will only need to buy and replenish Top Up cards / vouchers to remain on the network. You pay for calls as they are made, as the cost of the call is deducted from the available credit in the card.
Q: What is Please call me?A:
Call me is a service that allows you send a standard text message to another BTC customer requesting that they contact you.
Q: Can I check my Voicemail from any phone?A:
Yes you can. To access BTC voicemail from another phone, simply dial 557-0000. BTC offers free local voicemail retrieval. When roaming you can dial 1-242-557-0001 from a landline or your mobile phone to retrieve your voicemail messages. Roaming rates will apply when retrieving voice message while roaming.
Q: How does Please call me work?A:
A BTC prepaid customer sends a “Call Me” message by typing *204# mobile number# and then pressing send. The person to whom the message is directed receives a text “Please call me: your mobile number. Thank You!”
Q: Can any customer use call me?A:
This service is only available to prepaid customers. You must have less than $0.33* credit to use the Call Me service.
