People are forgetful at times. We usually forget things that are of no consequence to us, like the first game we ever played, or our first smartphone. But have you experienced being at a gathering then someone important comes up to you and says, “What’s your mobile number?” You struggle to remember but nothing is coming to you. Sounds like a nightmare, huh? Well, for any phone, it couldn’t get any easier to check your own mobile number.
You can check your mobile number by dialing USSD codes, almost all the operators show the mobile number this way but some operators don’t and in that case you can use mobile applications provided by the operator to find your own mobile number.
To check mobile number if you don’t have balance in your account, follow these steps:
List of all Operators
|Aircel||*1# or *133#|
|Idea||*1# or *131*1#|
