No doubt we all have SIM cards which we have been using not quite long and you don’t remember the number or probably you have so many SIM cards you are using (I know I do), probably the only one you know is the number on your main SIM. It’s not uncommon for network subscribers in Nigeria to have many SIM cards, this is due to the poor network quality. Therefore, the only way to overcome this challenge is to have a SIM card for each network provider. An Internet user in Nigeria will have a SIM card for Glo, MTN, Airtel and Etisalat.
“I can’t remember my number on this phone”
Having many SIMs has its own many palaver and one of such challenges is that you may not remember a particular number that you need urgently. Maybe a friend ask you for that particular number of yours or probably the person wants to send you a gift data to that number and there is no credit on that line because it’s not your primary line.
You are therefore looking for ways on how to check the phone number. The major service providers in Nigeria know that you may fall into this dilemma, therefore, they have provided shortcuts to dial to get your mobile numbers without having to memorize or check the SIM packs. Search no further, you have come to the right place. Below I will show you how to check your Glo, Mtn, Etisalat and Airtel number.
