I’ve come across several people asking questions like… “how can I check my Glo number?” and because of that I decided to publish a guide to help as many as are interested in learning how to check the 11-digits assigned to their Glo lines via USSD code, Glo website, or phone call. All methods are very easy and fast, depending on the one you choose to use.
All Nigerian phone numbers are just 11-digits and shouldn’t be so hard to memorize; however, forgetting it is no crime. After all you’re just a few clicks away from finding out what it is.
Ideally, after purchasing a Glo SIM card, your 11-digit number will be located at a very noticeable area on the SIM pack. However, it’s not really possible to go around holding a SIM pack, hence the need to know the codes or ways to check your number whenever you need it.
As earlier noted, there are three easy ways you can check your Glo line fast, and I’ll walk you through all three of them step-by-step.
How to check Glo phone number using USSD code
To check your Glo number using USSD code dial *135*8#; the 11-digit numbers assigned to your line will be displayed thereafter. Also, a message will be sent to your inbox to emphasize the info you got from the USSD command.
Note: Glo usually sends a message displaying your phone number along with Nigeria’s country code (234); so it may appear like this 2348051234567.
The country code is useful if you’re sending it to someone living in another country. However, if you’re finding it confusing, just remove the 234 and add a zero before the other digits. It should now appear like this 08051234567.
How to check Glo phone number via a phone call
All you have to do is dial 1244 and immediately you’ll hear a robotic voice reading out your phone number audibly. I don’t recommend using this method, though, since it will be required of you to hold a pen and paper before dialing, or memorize what you hear the robotic voice call as soon as possible.
Now, for the final method…
