In this post are codes for recharging and checking credit balance on CDMA networks in Nigeria (Starcomms, Visafone and Multilinks). People ask me about them a lot and I just took the pain to gather them together and create a post from them. I even get lost myself sometimes as to how to go about these stuffs.


How do I check my credit balance on VISAFONE Network?

Dial *775# Send
Dial *888* Listen to the voice prompt, then press 2

How do I recharge on VISAFONE Network?

Scratch the silver panel area on your recharge card to reveal 14 digit PIN number

Now, type the following on your phone:

Dial *888* Listen and follow the voice instruction,
