    Send a "please call me" to another number with *121*number#
    I spent most of my money on fast cars, fast women and booze. The rest I just squandered...

    Step 1: Put the sim card of the unknown number into your phone.
    Step 2: Power on phone and see if it has been unregistered.
    Step 3: If it has been unregistered toss it away as it's useless.
    Step 4: *123*888# to get the number. If that doesn't work send a please call me. If that doesn't work check airtime balance and if there is enough, miss call your known number...You will get an sms saying xxxxxxxxxx tried to call.

    Also used the *123*888# on a simcard I had here on the desk. Thanks for that info.

    The "27" is SA's country calling code...if the cell number is in "international format" the "0" usually falls away...
