Hence, checking and knowing your Airtel number is as easy as following any of the methods explained below.

How to Check Airtel Number With Just a Call

- Follow the prompt by pressing the option that says “Speak to a customer care representative”.
- Once the call connects to a representative, tell him/her that you want to reveal your number.

How to Check Airtel Number Online via Airtel App
The internet has made it much easier to check your number like all you need is just an internet connection.
Here’s how to check your Airtel number via the Airtel app.
Firstly, make sure you have the Airtel mobile app already installed on your phone, and the Sim card in question inserted on the same phone with an internet connection.
Open the app, and browse through its menus, you will see a section where you can click on to access your phone number without any issue.
However, this method may be difficult if it is the first time you’re installing the Airtel app. This is because you’ll need to enter your number before you get access to the dashboard.
But if you’ve already installed the app and have access to your dashboard before now, you may use this method as it is one of the fastest ways to check your Airtel number.
How to Check Airtel Number on Another Phone
This is by far the easiest way to check your Airtel number as you only need another phone then use the Airtel line in question to call or flash the line on the other phone.
For example; Get your friend’s phone, and call (flash) his/her line with your own Airtel line, then take a pen and paper and write your Airtel number down from your friend’s phone.
If you don’t have a balance that could make a call or flash other lines on your Airtel line, then use this trick below
- Dial **[Your friend’s number] and call.
This will automatically flash your friend and from there, you can copy or write down your own number.
Another way to check your Airtel number on another phone is by sending a Call Me Back Message.
You can do that by dialing;
- *140*Recipient Number#.
For example, if the friend’s number is 08020000000, just dial *140*08020000000#, then send/call.
Once the message is delivered, check the person’s phone to read the message he/she just received. If it’s from you, then your Airtel number will be shown together with the “call me back” message. You can copy or write down the number.
How to Check Airtel Number Via SMS
Another way to check your Airtel number is through SMS (text message).
I would have loved to say something like “Type ‘My Number’ or ‘Reveal My Number’ and send it to +–+”.
But unfortunately, that doesn’t exist.
But wait! There’s still a way out. Yes, a way to check your Airtel number via SMS.
You can check your Airtel number via SMS by sending a text message to your friend’s phone, then write down the number that sent the message once your friend receives your message. That’s your number. It cost 4 Naira only.
Another way is by sending a call me back message to your friend or someone nearby. I’ve explained how to do that above.
