(n)
reminder or mobile phone call that acts as a reminder.

The intention of the caller is to remind the receiver of some particular event or task. Generally, the receiver would have made the request for a 'missed call'.

This term originated in India after the mobile boom. The caller identification is a default feature in most of the mobile phones; hence this peculiar use.
