Orange has launched a reverse charge call service dubbed ‘Nisort’ that will allow callers to make reverse charged calls. This service will allow callers to make calls and have the call recipients pay for the calls.
The Orange Kenya Nisort service will only be available for Orange-to-Orange calls (on-net) and only complete the call if the recipient accepts the charges. Orange allows customers a 10 number white-list; whereby the recipient can set ten telephone numbers whose Nisort calls will be accepted automatically.
The Nisort (Pay4Me) service will, naturally, allow you to make calls even without any airtime on your phone (with zero credit).
How to use Orange’s Nisort (Pay4Me) Service
There are three options of how to use the Nisort service:
- Dial 128 followed by the recipient’s mobile number
- Dial 127 for a voice prompt; and follow the instructions
- Dial #123# to access the Orange USSD menu and select the service
NiSort will come in very handy in an emergency when a customer has no airtime to place a direct call or for a minor who needs to contact their parent or guardian and yet has a limited airtime allowance.

Like most other Kenyan Telephony networks, Orange Kenya offers Please Call Me, Credit Transfer and PEWA (emergency airtime) emergency services. The Nisort (Pay4Me) is a new emergency service in the market and it should be interesting to see how the rest of the networks react to it; for the customers on the other hand, this service will be a lifesaver.
