How to check your number on MTN

There are two simple ways of checking your MTN number regardless of the phone you are using.

The first one involves the use of the standard MTN USSD command, *123#. Simply dial this command, and you will see a menu appear on the screen. There are lots of options to choose from, but you only need the first one, which is Account Information. In order to select it, press 1 and then OK.

In the next menu that appears, you will also need only the first option that says My Number. Once again, press 1 and then OK. After that, your number should appear on the screen.

The second one is even easier. You can check your number via another USSD command. Just dial *663#, and your phone number will appear on your screen.

Apart from the ways we have mentioned before, there are also a few other options of checking your phone number. They depend on your phone. For example, in most Android phones, you can go to Settings -> About phone -> Status -> My phone number and find your phone number there. However, in some phones (especially the ones that use multiple SIM cards), after the ‘Status’ menu comes ‘SIM status’ menu, where the phone number is hidden.

In some Android phones, you can also go to your Contacts app, and at the very top, you might see the ‘My Profile’ or ‘Me’ contact. If you tap that, you might find your number there. Although this option does not work for all phones, and some phones need you to input that information first to display it later.
