The USSD codes for all network providers were recently consolidated. So here’s a step-by-step guide on how to currently check Airtel data balance:

Step 1: Unlock your phone and open the phone’s dialer or calling app.

Step 2: Dial the USSD code to check your Airtel data balance. The USSD code for Airtel data balance is *323#.
