I just want to share this to all Saudi OFW subscribers of this blog. Did you know that you can ask your relatives in Philippines to call You in Saudi Arabia? As an example, you may want to talk to your family but there is no available load for your Mobily phone in Saudi Arabia. Here is a brief instruction from Mobily Saudi Arabia site.
With Mobily “Call Me” to Philippines you will be able to send text message for free to any mobile number in Philippines with the message “Pakitawagan po ako ngayon….ang serbisyo pong ito ay galing sa Kalemni Mobily.”.
How to use the service?
To use the service dial *177*Filipino_Mobile_Number# and press dial button on your phone ,Don’t forget to put the country code “0063” or “+63” followed by the Mobile number
The service is available for you in KSA or while roaming anywhere in the world, provided that the operator you roam on support the USSD commands service.
Free of charge.
But you need to subscribe to “Mabuhay Kababayan” promo of Mobily. The only problem is when your relatives does not have any load to call you back.
You can buy a Mabuhay line from the nearest Mobily shop and distributors.
Please be noted that not every OFW in Saudi Arabia have money in their pocket . There are times that they need to contact their family but since they have not yet receive their salary or even sometimes salary delayed, talking to their family becomes impossible . So good to know that this service is available to Pinoys in Saudi Arabia.
