Mobile phone numbers can sometimes be difficult to cram especially when you have more than one new number from different telecommunication networks. Writing this post, I recalled when a friend of mine asked me for my MTN phone number and I couldn’t respond. Unluckily for me, I also did not have airtime to call his line so that my mobile number could display on his phone.
You could imagine how embarrassing that was for me that day and I had to Google out the method on how to check my MTN phone number. That was my little experience which prompted me to write this post on the USSD codes you can easily dial to retrieve your phone number on MTN, Etisalat, Airtel or Glo and 9mobile network
