What is USSD Short Codes?
USSD stands for Unstructured Supplementary Service Data. USSD is a Global System for GSM cellular communication technology that is used to communicate with mobile network providers. Such communication services can be seen as sending text between a mobile phone and an application program in the network provider.
USSD is commonly used by prepaid mobile phones customers to request the available balance on their account. The mobile network provider “check balance” application hides the details of the USSD protocol from the user. On some networks, such as Etisalat, MTN, GLO, and Airtel, once you perform an action to check your account balance, you will see a USSD message that will display your account balance for you. USSD can also be used to recharge or top-up your account balance on your SIM.
USSD is sometimes used together with SMS. The user sends a request to the network providers using USSD code, and the network providers reply to them with an acknowledgement of receipt such as “Thank you, your message is being processed. A message will be sent to your phone.”
A good example of this is when you request to check your data balance. After dialing the USSD code to check your data balance, a message is displayed on your phone. This message may display your current data balance or inform you that a text message will be sent containing your account balance.
Thankfully, with USSD you will receive a reply in real-time (almost instant).
