If you still need help checking your Airtel phone number, there’s one more method you can try. Here’s what you’ll need:

  1. Airtime on your phone
  2. A friend who is nearby or readily accessible

To use this method, call your friend and ask them to tell you your phone number. If your friend has your number saved in their contacts, they can say to you without you even having to call them.

Alternatively, you can send a “Call Me” SMS to a friend if you don’t have enough airtime on your phone. Here’s how to do it:

  1. Dial 140 followed by your friend’s phone number, like this: 14009020123456#
  2. Press the call button
  3. A “Call Me” SMS will be sent to your friend.
  4. Check your friend’s phone for your phone number, which will be displayed in the “Call Me” SMS details.

If you need a different method, there are still other options available. For example, you can check your SIM card packaging for your phone number or contact Airtel customer service for further assistance.

In that case, you can find your phone number printed on the packaging and other details like your PUK number and serial number.

Suppose none of the other methods discussed in this article have worked. In that case, you can always call Airtel customer service for assistance. Here’s how to do it:

  1. Dial 121 on your phone.
