I wrote this article after a little research on getting the codes to fetch a number on any phone line in Nigeria; be it MTN, globacom, Etisalat or airtel. Having forgotten my MTN cell number once made me feel less human at a critical point I needed it. I had to work on how to find the phone number of any network as I am convinced that knowing these short codes to check your Phone number on Nigerian telecommunications networks would save a friend from a critical condition someday.
The information on how to check any phone number with codes is documented below.
The short code to check and know your mobile phone number on Airtel is *121#
After dialing the code, 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.
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.
Dial 1244 on any globacomm line and to listen to the voice prompt that would announce the phone number.
On Etisalat line, dial *248# and your number will be displayed.
