How to Find the Phone Number for a Vodacom SIM Card

Ever found a SIM card and could not recall the phone number? Unfortunately if you do not have enough airtime, you cannot make a call to another phone where you could see the number on caller ID. You could always phone Vodacom’s Customer Care on 111 and wait to speak to a call centre agent but that can be quite a long wait.

Fortunately there is a very simple way to check your cell phone number if you have forgotten it. This procedure only applies to a Vodacom SIM card that is still active.

  1. Insert the SIM card into a cell phone and put the phone on.
  2. Key in *111*501# and press the dial button.
  3. A pop up message should appear with your phone number.

Alternatively, you can do this through SMS and it won’t cost you anything.

  1. Insert the SIM card into a cell phone and put the phone on.
  2. Create a new SMS and type in “ON” without the inverted commas and all in capital letters.
  3. Send the SMS to 31050.
  4. You should receive an SMS in a short while with your cell phone number.

Remember to keep all your unused SIM cards safely. With the current RICA regulations, a SIM card registered on your name should be immediately cancelled if it is lost or stolen. Should the SIM card be stolen and used in some criminal activity, you could be held liable.
