How to check your Vi (Vodafone Idea) number

There are basically four methods with which you can find out your Vi number. Let’s quickly take a look:

1.     Check Vi number using USSD code

This method is very useful if someone in your home still uses a feature phone. A USSD code is a number of digits programmed into your SIM card that allows customers to perform a set of functions. For this to work, make sure that the SIM is inserted, there is cell reception, and your number is activated. Every telecom operator has different sets of USSD codes for different services. So, to know your number:

  • Open your Phone app on your mobile phone and go to Dialer.
  • Dial *199# on your Vodafone Idea SIM for which you want to know the number.
  • You will see a flash message that reads MSISDN: XXXXXXXXXX (phone number).
  • Note down your phone number before closing the message

In case you are having a feature phone, simply Dial *199# to know your number. A similar flash message will appear. You may note down your mobile number from there.

2. Check Vi number through customer care

Apart from using USSD codes, you can also directly call the customer care to find out your Vi number. However, it takes quite a while just to talk to the customer executive since you have to go through an IVR (Interactive Voice Response).

  • Dial 199 or 198 from your mobile phone.
  • Select your preferred language.
  • Select Option 1 and then wait until the IVR says through all your balance details. It will then start giving options on various services. Select Option 4 to be redirected to a customer care executive.

3. Check Vi number by calling others

You can easily find out your mobile number by dialing your friends phone. Simply open your dialer app and dial your friends mobile number. You will find out your phone number when it has dialled successfully. Do note it down.
