Thread: MTN USSD codes

  1. #1

    Default MTN USSD codes

    These are the MTN USSD codes to load and query data bundles and other options. This should alleviate the necessity to put the SIM in a regular phone for these actions.

    1. *141# - Balance Enquiry

    response format:

    "Y'ello. You have Rxx.xx airtime, xx.xxMB Data, xx MMS and xxx SMS (xx exp dd/mm) remaining."

    2. *141*<PIN># - Recharge Request

    3. *141*4# - Tariff Analyser and Priceplan Migrations menu

    4. *141*4*0# - Tariff Analyser

    5. *141*4*<Price Plan Option># - Priceplan migration

    6. *141*6*<BundleSize># - Data bundle purchase

    7. *141*6*0# - Data bundle cancellation

    8. *141*6328*<MSISDN># - Me2U Top Up Request

    9. *141*6328*<MSISDN>*<AMOUNT># - Me2U Transfer

    10. *141*7*<BundleSize># SMS bundle purchase

    11. *141*7*0# - SMS bundle cancellation

    12. *141*8# - Yello Fortune Entries


    Update 2013-10-25:

    13. *141*5# - Content Billing

    14. *123*888# - MSISDN query (retrieve own number)

    Prepaid - all of it.
    Hybrid - bundle provisioning is done via the SP so they can only execute the balance queries.
    Contract - no.

    It would be nice if it followed closely the voice equivalent:
    Dial 141 ...
    "You have x airtime, press 1 for other balances"
    2 for big bonus
    3 to load airtime
    4 for price plan info
    5 for me to u transfer
    9 for voicemail preferences

    and then you press 1 and get:
    "press 1 for all balances"
    2 for SMS
    3 for MMS
    4 for data balance

    Then you could use a USSD shortcut to get the data balance by putting in:
    *141*1*4# to go straight to data balance.

    I have a standalone HSDPA modem & would be very happy to find a tool that submits those commands from my Linux box.
    Suggestions please.

    There is a thread somewhere here about doing it... I can't remember what it was called though..

    I think Windows has some sort of terminal dialing app somewhere under accessories...

    Use Hyper Terminal, explained here, or even easier, use E620 Tool, available here.

    Doing then the following ...

    Note after the numerical choice menus the correct output of the following result will be displayed , takes a few seconds.

    *162*pin*1#,1 = All bundles including rand and mb of databundle.

    *162*pin*1#,2 = Rand Value

    *162*pin*1#,3 = Data bundle value

    @Insider:
    What are the valid values for <BundleSize>?
    How about *141*6# and *141*7# giving the user a menu listing the possible choices for data and SMS bundles respectively?

    Has anyone discovered any USSD codes that work for contract customers?

    I notice that the *162*pin*1# works on the cellphone but how do I make it work on my data card. Can I run USSD on that MTN Huawei dashboard program.
