A post which talks on how to check blackberry subscription data balance on the mobile networks in Nigeria can be considered as old. As true as that may sound, I have come realize that most people still don’t know how its done and for that reason, I have decided to share it here.

check networks in Nigeria bis data subscription balance
Before now, we have often shared tips on how to check data balance on MTN, Glo, Etisalat and Airtel. Hence, I wouldn’t want to bore you with stories. Instead, I will cut to the chase.

Check BIS Balance On MTN

For MTN BIS subscribers who are looking at checking their data balance, please send Status to 21600.

Check BIS Balance On Glo

Send status to 777. Alternatively, you can dial *777*0#.


Dial *228#

For Airtel

Dial *123*10# or dial *141*712*0#. Alternatively, you can send Status to 440.

Please note that the above codes are strictly for BIS subscriptions. If you are looking at checking normal subscription data balance, the above codes won’t give you what you want. You can relay your questions using the comment session and I will be more than happy to reply you as soon as i can.


  1. The fact that I already subscribed already…hope if I put the Sim in my m3 and change the imei…it will still work..while answering also tell me where to get my blackberry imei (gotta do it now

  2. Problem really is that I have this lenovo ipad…trying to share bis network to it…dunno weda my bold 5 can do it..and if it can’t…if I put the Sim in an android (m3) will I be able to share network to the ipad?

    • Henrie, what kinda android phone?? If it’s an android phone running on MTK processor, just change the IMEI to a blackberry IMEI and you are good to go.
