Last Updated on 3 years by Komolafe Bamidele

You might have purchased 9mobile Nigeria or Etisalat UAE data using ussd code bundle and probably want to monitor your balance to determine your next recharge possible for a subscription again.

This is the best thing to do especially when you are the type that works online 24/7 like we do here. It’s too overwhelming to remember all the basic USSD codes for various networks that you use especially when you are a business type that uses more than two phone lines of a different network in an example of code to check data balance on either 9mobile, MTN, Airtel or Glo.

On this post, we are going to focus mainly on how to check data balance on 9mobile, maybe about others in another post. In that case, I will advise you read step by step guide below.

How to Check 9mobile Data Balance in Nigeria

I have read different blogs talked about this topic. But the good news here is that there’s a most shorter and fast (recommended) way to check your data balance on 9mobile.

This way many of the bloggers do not state it.

Way 1: Using 9mobile App

If you wish to check your 9mobile data plan on any mobile device with just a few clicks, I will recommend you download the mobile app from your respective app store to easily click away and see your data balance.

Way 2 Using *228# USSD code

If you think you cannot download the app from the app store or maybe you are running out of memory space, then you can go with the USSD code to check the balance on 9mobile.

This is the most simpler way though, I don’t recommend this first because, for me, it use to be very irritating for the message reply before I can see my data balance. To use this method, simply dial *228# then hit send or OK.

Way 3: Using *200# USSD Code

This is the most recommended way to check your data balance on 9mobile in Nigeria. I have always used this method because it’s actually faster, reliable and does not send any reply for data balance details.

But if you are the type that love receiving those messages, you can use ussd code 1 instead.

To use this method, it can be applied in two easy ways. Either you type on your keyboard, *200# and follow the on-screen command (select 3 for data, then 2 for check balance) Or better still type everything straight as follows *200*3*2# and hit Yes/Send/Ok
