How to know your Airtel phone number in case you’ve forgotten

It happens to most of us, you’re just about to do something such as give your number to your latest bestie and cannot just figure out those damn digits! We’ll the most logical option would be to let them give you their contacts instead and ring them, problem is there are a number of circumstances when that’s not possible.

Probably you don’t have airtime balance and therefore ringing them isn’t possible or your bestie might not have their mobile phones with them at the time or even maybe can’t remember their phone numbers as well.

Airtel Kenya has a nifty feature that would allow subscribers to retrieve their phone contact digits in case they’ve forgotten. All you have to do is follow some simple USSD commands and you’ll be looking right at your very own phone number.

Here is how you can know or retrieve your airtel phone number;

  • On your airtel mobile phone, dial *100#
  • Scroll through the options and select – Manage My Account
  • On the next page, tap on – number and balance
  • Lastly tap on send
  • You should receive a text message that is similar to “your number is 0733XXXXXX and Balance is 0.01
