There are basically going to be 4 ways to go about this. So let’s start with the USSD method of checking your number down to the least used method, though some would find it helpful also.

Method 1: Dialing a USSD Number to Know Your Airtel Number

When it comes to the use of USSD to check for your Airtel phone number, we have come across a whole bunch of USSD codes that have worked for this purpose on the Airtel network and I’ll be sharing with you below. Dial any of the numbers below.

  • *121*9

  • *140*1600#
  • *140*175#
  • *141*123#
  • *400*2*1*10#

The first and easiest method most people would resort to is this one. All you need do is recharge your said Glo line with airtime, then use this line in calling or sending an SMS to a friend. Your number definitely would appear on the other person’s mobile phone and you can get your phone number this way.

Method 4: Using the Call Me Back Option to Check Airtel Phone Number

We all live in a society where all the network operators have provided us with a means to send a free SMS to our friends and loved ones asking them to kindly call us back.
