Do you want people to call you without knowning your real phone number? Well MTC has just the service for you! Simply call 2257777 and listen to the funny man who will read out a menu. Press 1 to register and you can assign yourself (or be assigned) a code.
If I recall correctly from the microscopic manual I received, this code will allow you to receive phone calls from other registered people. Basically, to be contacted by someone, all they need to do is dial 2257777pXXXXXX, where Xs are your 6 digit code. From now on, that number will be called your, “second number”. All incoming calls are free, however calling someone one their “second number” will cost you 99 fils/min!
I hope that many of our well-behaved Kuwaiti youth put this service into good use. Don’t bother looking at the MTC website about this topic because, for some reason or another, they failed to mention it.
