Checking your phone number isn’t an issue many of us would have gotten into, I can’t ascertain how many of us have fallen in this kind of situation.

I have fallen into situations where I will have to provide my phone number for one or two reasons. Imagine Frank having as many as 2 sims for different network provider, one for modem, one for phone, one for pad, hehe!! sounds funny right? Having lots of Sim cards is a normal thing but remembering their number is the Big question?

Would you tell CC you don’t know what number you are using when asked? I am going to quickly show you how to check these number without having to stress yourself.


1. Airtel Nigeria

To check and know your mobile phone number on Airtel, dial *121#

  • Follow the onscreen instruction, Select 1, and send for My Account option.
  • On the next screen that comes up, select 1 and send as My Number option.
  • Your phone number will be displayed to you on the screen. You can write it out and save somewhere.

2. MTN Nigeria

Option 1:
Dial *123# and follow onscreen process that follows. Respond with option 1, then send to select My tools option. Then select option 5 in My Tools to request My Number. This will display your phone number on the screen.

Option 2:
This involves sending call me back message to another MTN number. This will show your number in the message the other MTN number receives. It is as simple as ABC.
