Glo Phone Number Checker
It may take some time to fully memorize a new SIM card number, possibly, the numbers might just be too difficult to easily memorize.
If you need your phone number in an emergency and you cannot remember, fret not!
Here are the best ways to check your Glo phone number.
1. USSD Code
There are a few USSD codes you can use to check your Glo phone number.
Method 1: Dial *1244# to check your Glo mobile number.
Method 2: Dial 1244 on your mobile dialer via the Glo SIM that you wish to know its 11 digits.
Note that 1244 isn’t a Glo customer care line.
It is just programmed to automatically call out the digits of the Glo line you dialed the number with.
Since it is automatic, it may be better to be prepared before dialing the number, possibly you should be with a pen and a book in order to jot out the number when it is being called out.
Method 3: You can as well follow the outlined steps below to check your Glo phone number via USSD code.
- Dial *777# on your device
- Select 4 (My Tariff Plan), from the numbered options available on the menu box.
- Finally, reply 3 (My Number) to the next prompt that appears. Your number will then be displayed on the screen.
Checking your Glo phone number via USSD code is by far the simplest and easiest method.
It is absolutely free!
Probably, you must have also heard of this USSD code *135*8# that is claimed to be used to check Glo phone number.
Unfortunately, the USSD code is no longer functional, but if it does for you, kindly let us know so that this article will be updated.
2. Glo Cafe App
To check your Glo phone number via the ‘Glo Cafe App’, follow these steps:
- Download and install the ‘Glo Cafe App’ on your device via the Google play store or the app store.
- Launch the app.
Displayed prominently at the top of the updated Glo Cafe App is your name and mobile number, as well as airtime and data balance.
It is quite easy, and faster if you already have the app installed on your device.
However, that’s not all, there’s still more!
3. Sending a ‘Call Me Back’ SMS
Sending a ‘call me back’ SMS is absolutely free, but you should send it to a friend that is just close by so that you’ll quickly check your number.
Below are the outlined steps on how to use it to check your phone number.
- Just dial *125*(the number of your friend)#
- On doing this, your number will be displayed on your friend’s phone screen alongside the ‘please call me back’ message.
- Check your friend’s phone to get the displayed number, which is actually your Glo phone number, then you can copy it out.
4. Calling a Friend
Calling a friend is also a proven way of how to check your Glo phone number.
Just get a friend’s phone number (especially one that is just close by).
Call him/her with the Glo line you wish to know about its digits.
When it rings, get your friend’s phone and see the number and that’s it!
Copy out the number somewhere safe or you can memorize it.
5. Via the Customer Service
Calling the Glo customer service is also an effective way of getting your account information – your phone number inclusive.
Though this method may seem so unpopular however, it is actually quite easy and is absolutely free as well.
- Just call the Glo customer care support team by dialing 121 or 200 from your mobile phone.
- Follow the instructions that will be provided by the Interactive Voice Response (IVR) to know your mobile number and other relevant details. It is that simple as well.
Glo PUK Number Checker
The PUK (Personal Unblocking Key) is a unique code or set of numbers linked to your mobile phone’s SIM card.
It is usually required if you have set a SIM card lock and, in trying to unlock it, you entered the wrong code up to three times.
Thus, the importance of knowing your PUK number cannot be overemphasized.
Obviously, your SIM pack contains your PUK number, but what if you’ve lost the SIM pack or it has been misplaced?
How then would you retrieve your PUK code?
If the Glo SIM has already been blocked and you’ve missed your SIM pack, your best option is to contact the Glo customer care lines.
- Dial 121 or 200, if you’re calling directly from a Glo number.
Follow the outlined procedures and supply the needed information, and your Glo PUK number will be sent to you.
Glo Tariff Plan Checker
Your tariff plan determines how and what you’ll be charged for the calls that you make.
Here are the best ways to check your Glo tariff plan.
1. USSD Code
Method 1: Dial #100# on your mobile dialer via the Glo SIM.
A pop-up showing your current tariff plan will appear.
The message usually comes in this way, “Dear customer, your profile is…” It is that simple.
Method 2: Dial *124*3# Your tariff plan information will be sent to you.
2. Calling Customer Care Lines
