Instead of calling customer care just to know how to carry out simple tasks on your Telkom line, go through this post and you will find most of the commonly used USSD codes that will make your user experience amazing.
What are USSD codes?
Unstructured Supplementary Service Data(USD) codes, also known as Quick codes, allow mobile phone users perform simple tasks like airtime top up or access specific services like subscribing to a given bundle without having to call customer care of the specific telecommunications provider.
These codes are usually in the form*XXX#, and vary depending on the specific telcos, though some might be the same, like *544# for data. This is not a must, but since we are used to Safaricom, then others also decided to use same codes in performing some actions.
