Thread: Cell C account info - USSD menu number and SMS short codes

  1. #1

    Default Cell C account info - USSD menu number and SMS short codes

    Check your Cell C account by phoning 140.

    SMS "bal" or "balance" to 14302 to check account balance.

    Dial *147# to launch the USSD menu with various account management and inquiry options.

    Cell C USSD codes

    These are the Cell C USSD service numbers to be dialled from your cellular handset.

    Balance enquiry

    • *101#


    Pre-paid top up

    • *102*<voucher>#


    Send a Call Me Back message

    • *111*<mobile number>#


    Customer menu

    • *147#


    MSISDN query (retrieve own number)

    • *147*100#




    I have contacted Cell C for the full list of USSD and SMS codes and will update when they supply the information.

    Thanks ginggs. I will update the OP.

    Hopefully Cell C comes through with a comprehensive list.

    Any idea why they don't support shortcuts. E.g. instead of dialling *147# and then choosing 4, then 1, then 2 in order to purchase a 100mb data bundle, I'd like to be able to do:
    *147*4*1*2#
    which does not work.

    Anyone found a shortcut?

    Default

    I would also like a shortcut like that
    *147*2*4# to find out when my data bundle expires.
    I have to use their menu.
    Just doing a balance check doesn't show expiry so its not very useful.

    Thanks. I'll try next time I'm using a 3G and MDMA.
    For the moment I'm just using CellC on an old iPhone 3GS temporarily.
    Interestingly I discovered the software allows you to add wait and/or pause into phonebook entries.
    Unfortunately it won't activate the *147# menu at all (or the **147# menu you suggested) with wait or pause symbols afterwards.
