    What is USSD?

    In operation, USSD is used as the bearer to facilitate the interaction between the user and an application. USSD should be thought of as a trigger that enables other applications rather than an application itself.Unstructured Supplementary Service Data (USSD) is a technology unique to GSM. It is a means of transmitting information or instructions over the signaling channels of the GSM network.

    USSD is a service that allows high-speed and interactive communications between the user and applications across a GSM network. Basically, USSD allows you to request services by entering a specific short sequence of characters on the handset, such as *111#

    USSD has some similarities with SMS since both use the GSM network's signaling channel. The difference is that SMS is a store and forward service, whereas USSD is a session-based service, i.e. when a user accesses a USSD service, a session is established and the radio connection stays open until the user, application, or time out releases it. This has more in common with Data than SMS.

    What do I pay for using USSD?

    There will be a bearer charge, which is calculated in increments of 20 seconds to a maximum of 2 minutes. Commercial VAS charges apply (to be determined and charged by content provider).

    I'd like to know why the latest USB modem software doesn't support the issuing of USSD instructions? Some do, some don't.
