How to Know Your Airtel Kenya Phone Number

Years ago, mobile networks used to print the mobile number on the SIM Card holder among other details such as PIN and PUK Numbers. Along the way the SIM Card holders kept getting smaller and smaller and at some point they stopped printing the numbers on the card.

This may have been prompted by efforts to protect the subscriber’s privacy by not revealing to the retailer selling the SIM card their numbers. However this often comes at the cost of some people having a difficult time figuring out their phone numbers. To check your Airtel Kenya phone number do the following.


Check Your Airtel Number

1. Dial *100# on with your Airtel line and enter 3 for Manage My Account.
