Your Airtel mobile phone will help you. Here are the three ways to check your Airtel number easily – USSD code, Thanks App and IVR.

Let’s first understand more about USSD codes.

What is USSD code?

USSD stands for Unstructured Supplementary Service Data. It is a communications and networking protocol that is used by GSM mobile operators to send text messaging services. Mostly all USSD codes start with a star (*) and end with a hash (#) like *123#. USSD works on any phone. It does not require any data plan or internet. Many mobile users use these codes to check out the balance of mobile. With USSD you can get information about SMS balances, Main balances, Internet Pack balances without even having any internet connection.

The USSD code is used for the following reasons:

  • To check phone balance: The USSD gateway is used to inform consumers about their prepaid mobile balance
  • To check Airtel number and other details.
  • Marketing/advertising purposes: USSD is used as a marketing tool for promoting certain products and services
  • Roaming: A USSD gateway is helpful while the user’s phone is on roaming. The USSD code allows the users to have access to their home network environment and the same applications they usually employ, regardless of the telecom network they are in especially during travel.
