- Dialing a USSD code
Like other network providers, MTN has an easy to remember code for subscribers to use when they need to check their phone numbers.
All you need to dial to do is to dial the USSD code and follow the process.
The USSD code is *123# – as you can see, it is straightforward to remember.
After dialling the code, you will gain access to the Menu.
Then you are to choose option 1. Once you make this choice, you will get to the My Tools feature.
Select option 1, known as ‘My Number.’
You will see your phone number immediately.
An easier way is to dial 1231*1# or *663#
- Call a friend or relative
Another easy way to get your phone number is to call a friend or relative. However, note that in this case, you must have airtime on your SIM card.
You dial a friend’s phone nearby and tell them to tell you or send your number via SMS.
- Call Me Back Feature
This another means to get your phone number even if you don’t have airtime on your phone. All you have to do is to Dial *133# on your phone to use the Call Me Back feature to a friend or relative who is close by. Your number will display on their phone, and you can then copy and save it.
- MTN self-service My MTN App
This is a self-service portal provided by MTN for its numerous subscribers.
To access this portal, you, however, need to log in with your phone number and PIN.
You also need to download a unique self-service mobile application known as My MTN App on your smartphone.
To gain access, send a short message ‘Care’ to the number 5018 from your MTN line. You will get a message with a link that takes you to the application download. You are to install the app on your phone. Once this is done, you can use it to check all kinds of information about your account, including your phone number.
5. Call Customer Care
