MTN simple tricks

These are simple tips from me to you. They are tricks I use often. Of course, these tricks help me a lot and I am ready to share some of them with you.

  • MyMTN App
    My favorite trick is using the MyMTN App. This app helps me to get a cool 50% data bundle on every data I purchase. The trick is simple; Purchase the data using the app.
  • *156#
    I always check my data balance using this code. *124# will show your data balance but won’t tell you which one is a midnight bundle or which one is what. *156# will break down everything for you to know which one is finished and which one is left. Yes!, is the same code you use for requesting MTN Internet Settings.
  • Check who is calling
    Truecaller is not as reliable as you might think. To know who is calling, just try sending them some money. I prefer GHC 0.10 just in case I mistakenly enter my Mobile Money PIN code after finding out their name.

So far, these are some of the major tricks I often use.

What is number reservation in MTN?

Number reservation is a form of subscription that will help you to keep your number even if you have not used it for a long period. All MTN numbers go into expiry after 6 months of inactivity. Within this period, you can reactivate it but after 12 months you won’t be able to reactivate. Beyond that, the number is recycled.
Number reservation helps you extend the expiration period by paying a fee.


“In conclusion, navigating the world of MTN services becomes seamless with these categorized short codes. From managing your airtime and bundles to accessing mobile money features and special services, these codes empower users to control their MTN experience efficiently.

Stay connected, explore the benefits, and make the most out of your MTN subscription with these convenient and purposeful short codes.”
