If you try making a call and it drops without any feedback or you get the feedback ‘call end’, probably you have mistakenly hidden your caller ID so just dial #31#, turn the phone Off and On, you should be able to make the call.

Dial ##21# if most of your callers are getting the feedback that they are calling the wrong number or they claim somebody else answered their call. Probably you have mistakenly done a call divert so that shortcode will cancel the divert.

Dial #33*0000# if you are making a call and it drops giving you the feedback “call barred”. It will cancel the call barring.

You can check lotto results by sending the first three letters of the days of the week in caps to 1903 at a fee. Example: send ‘MON’ to ‘1903’ to check Monday’s lotto results.

These are just a few of the so many MTN codes. Most of these codes have been tested and some of them involve airtime charges so trying them will be at your own risk.
