How To Check How Much Data & Balance Is Left in Airtel

You can check your Airtel account balance right now by just downloading the Airtel Thanks app or using USSD codes like *123#.

If you’re stuck at home and working without a Wi-Fi connection like me, you will understand how important it is to keep a check on the daily data limit. I know you want to finish all your work as soon as possible, but with no or fewer data left, you shouldn’t really think about binge-watching Netflix. However, there are easy ways for you to check the daily limit, so you can gauge and use it accordingly. So, here is how to check data on your Airtel connection and others.

This depends on which carrier you’re using. Each one has a different USSD number which you’ll have to feed in your dial-pad just like any normal phone number. I’m using an Airtel connection, so here’s how to check if you’re using the same.

  • Open your dialer and dial *125*1541#
  • This will show you a prompt with the daily data usage along with the daily limit and the pack’s validity.
  • Alternatively, you can dial *121# to check the data balance along with other recharges and offers.

It’s the easiest way to solve our problem. Also, you can easily Google and find these updated USSD codes for your network.

2. Carrier’s Proprietary App

Most of the carriers have an app that lets the user control and manages their connections. You can recharge, avail extra services and also, check the daily data limit within the app. Chances are your carrier offers something similar which you can download. With the Airtel app, you can check the “Daily data left” in your account along with the “Validity of the pack”. This also gives you other options like recharging your phone, transaction history and customer support as well.

3. Third-Party App

There are many third-party apps which let you keep a track of your daily limit. Starting with the simplest app of all “Internet Speed Meter Lite” which along with the daily data usage (Notification Bar) shows you the internet speed (Status Bar). It also segregates your mobile data from your WiFi data details. Alternatively, if you want more control over your data you can use “Data Eye”, which in addition to your usual data and WiFi stats, has an in-built Firewall, so you can easily block apps which you don’t want to give data access too.

If you’re on iOS, you can use My Data Manager VPN Security, which also works on similar lines.

Lastly, we can’t ignore Widgets, while both of the above apps don’t have this option, “Data counter Widget” gives you that option along with in-app usage stats.
