Check your Airtel balances with quick codes (ussd codes)

Check your Airtel balances with quick codes (ussd codes)

Enter the following codes as you would dial a phone number into your phone and hit dial, a sms like message will be returned with the requested information free of charge.

Dial to check available :

Balance : *123#

Data : *123*11#

SMS/Text  : *123*2#

Validity : *121#

A simple tip to make this easier in the future is to set a contact in your phone for example Airtel and save each of the necessary codes as a phone number like the example screenshot below.  So when you need to check a certain balance all you need to do is hit dial on the respective code/number.

    Considering that Airtel does not publicise the codes enough, this is quite useful. The short code for data is *123*10# though

      The listed data ussd code is what has worked for me, were you not able to get a result from the posted data ussd code?

          I don’t know exactly, as I have never gotten that pack, but try these: *123*10# or *141*11*0# or *141*712*0#, let me know if any of them work.

            To know the minute balance use code *123*5#

    • TheGlossy1

      *123*10# is the 2G code, *123*11# is the 3G code. I know because I just charged my phone with 3G for the first time today, I ran *123*10# and it said I had nothing on that code. So I found this site and it showed my new 3G balance!

      I am not exactly sure what the codes are for checking special balance but try “*123*1#” and replace the ending 1 with 2 thru 10 and see if it displays the balance you are looking for, reply back if this helped.
