Unstructured Supplementary Service Data (USSD) codes are one of the oldest and quickest ways to check on your phone's airtime balance, request certain information and access account menus.
While the MyVodacom app is a great way to look for your account information, USSD codes are still a handy way to do many things quickly and easily.
How to use USSD codes
Using USSD codes is as simple as dialling a phone number. You simply need to dial the code, including any symbols such as * or #, using your phone's call functionality.
Once you dial these numbers, a popup message or menu will appear on your screen.
Here are some of the useful codes that Vodacom subscribers can use.
Codes for all customers
Service: My Vodacom Services Menu
What it does: If there's one code to remember, it's this one, since the services menu gives you access to all other USSD services from Vodacom, including promotions. If you forget a code, you can access the services menu and find the option to access a specific service there. However, it's handy to remember certain other codes since they are essentially shortcuts which mean you don't have to load the whole services menu.
