Only three methods are available for checking data balance on MTN to know the volume of data you have left on your phone:

  1. USSD Code
  2. SMS
  3. MY MTN App

Code To Check Balance (USSD)

This first method of checking data balance on MTN is checking via USSD code which works perfectly on Android, Windows, iPhone and other types of phones. Though the USSD method is two and they are quite simple codes to use to know the remaining data bundle balance on your MTN line.

First Method (USSD Code): Dial *559*4# or *559# to check your MB data balance easily.

Second Method (USSD Code): Dial *131# > 4 to check the data balance. Mtn will respond with a message.

If you don’t like to use the USSD method, you can opt for the SMS way of checking your MB balance on Mtn.

To know the reaming megabyte on your MTN SIM via SMS, type and send ‘BALANCE or STATUS’ (remove the quotes) to 131. Or send 2 to 131 or 403 to 131.

A response message showing the size of your MB and the expiry date of your current Internet subscription will display on you’re the screen of your phone.
