How to check your data balance on Etisalat

Checking your data balance is really easy and does not require putting too much effort. The
various mobile networks have their unique ways someone can check what data they
have remaining. What makes this awesome is that they have specific codes that
can be applied which differ from one another.


What works for one will most certainly not work for the other. In order not to get
confused, it is best you know which particular code works for the mobile
network you make use of.

So if you are an Etisalat subscriber, this information is for you.

You can easily check the data balance on your Etisalat network in two different
ways depending on which seems faster for you or which you prefer using.

The two ways are:

  • By using the USSD code
  • By sending a text message

The steps involved are:

If you intend using the USSD code, do the following:

  • Simply dial *228#

Once you do this, you will instantly receive a message showing you exactly how much data you have

If you use a Blackberry
phone, you can check your data balance by using this code:

  • *399*2#

Doing this also brings out a prompt that shows you what data you have left.

If you want to check your data balance by sending a text message, do the following:

  • Send
    either INFO or BAL to 228

After doing this, a message will appear stating your remaining data balance.

Kindly note that it does not matter the kind of phone you use as you can check your
data balance using any type of phone.

These are therefore the various ways you can check your data balance on Etisalat. What
do you think very easy right?
