MTN Adopts NCC’s New Unified USSD Codes
Furthermore, if you were unaware, starting May 18, 2023, the exclusive method to verify your credit balance or add funds to your mobile account is by utilizing the unified USSD codes approved by the NCC for all mobile networks.
Approximately one month prior, the commission had notified all relevant parties to transition and fully execute the unified USSD codes before May 17, 2023. This directive was issued because once the harmonized short codes (HSC) for all mobile networks are implemented, they will be the sole method for recharging or checking balance across all mobile networks. Consequently, the NCC’s USSD codes carry significant implications in this regard.

This is to say that MTN users can’t recharge their line using the regular MTN codes *555# and *556#.
Additionally, users of MTN, GLO, Airtel, or others that fail to migrate will not be able to get services properly.
