If you have received a new MTN SIM and misplaced the package, you may quickly check your MTN phone number by using one of the methods listed below.
USSD Code to check your MTN number
Dial *123# to do this. A menu would appear, prompting you to select a menu item by responding with a number. The menu is as follows.
1. Account Information
2. Tariff Plan Migration
3. Data Services
4. BetterMe Bundle
5. MTN Play
6. Caller Tunez
7. Extra Time
Now we want to select the first option (Account Information), so hit 1 and then OK. A different menu would appear.
1. My Number
2. My Tariff Plan
3. My Account Balance
4. My Data Balance
5. My Bonus Account
6. End Of Call Message
00. Main Menu
Apparently, the first one (My Number) is the one you want, so press 1 and then OK. Your MTN phone number will appear on the screen as a result of this. It’s a good idea to write it down somewhere so you don’t forget it.
You may check your MTN number by dialing *663# for a quick check.
How To Check MTN phone number with SMS
Sending a free text message to another MTN line is another technique to find out your MTN number. MTN Call Me Back is a great service for this. Simply call *133*NUMBER# if you have another MTN phone handy.
The recipient’s phone will display your MTN phone number in the SMS message.
