Code to check your phone numbers on MTN, GLO, AIRTEL


It’s so common to hear people say they don’t know their phone numbers. When you tell someone you don’t know your phone number, they find it annoying and almost always never believe you.


The multiple sim mobile phones have encouraged people to have more than one SIM card since they would not have to carry so many phones around. Sometimes, they have as much as two or three SIM cards from the same network.


Every network provider is always on the top of its game trying to give their customers something that the other network provider does not have, and better than what they have.
