Code to Check Airtel Number: Everything You Need to Know

It’s difficult to keep track of numbers in these temporary SIMs we use daily, especially if you’ve discarded the SIM pack after purchase.

There are also times when you just get a new SIM card and you are finding it hard to memorize the number for the SIM.

I’ve experienced this before and sometimes I try to load airtime on the SIM and call someone near me so they tell me my number when the phone rings, not everyone would want to do that.

Get the Number from a Friend or Family Member

This is the simplest way to know your phone number, call the number of your friend or family and the caller is you. All you need to do is call a friend’s phone nearby and tell him or her to tell you or forward your number via SMS.

Send a Call Me SMS to Get the Number

You can only use this method if you have someone around you who also uses Airtel.

The customary way would have been to call that person’s phone and watch the number that displays on the screen. But imagine that you don’t have airtime on your SIM, then this is the only option you have.

1. Dial *140*your friend’s Number#.

2. Check your friend’s phone to see the message that he/she receives.

They will display your phone number along with the “Please call me back” message your friend receives. Also, this method is absolutely free.


Reach Out to Airtel Customer Care

If you forget the code for executing the first two methods above, another way to check your Airtel phone number is by calling customer care.

1. Dial 111 or 121 using your Airtel line.

2. Press the option that says “Speak to a customer care representative”

3. After the call connects, tell the customer care representative attending to you you forgot your phone number.

Make sure you get a pen and paper to write the phone number as the customer care representative calls it out.

You can also request that the customer care representative sends your number as an SMS. With that, you’ll receive a message containing your 11-digit Airtel phone number as soon as you drop the call.
