How do I check how many minutes are left on my cellphone?
« on: May 11, 2011, 06:19:27 PM »
I live out in the boonies and my 한국말 skills aren't good enough to get this question answered at my local OZ (the wonderful world store where I go to put more time on my phone), so I put it to you:

I have service through LG and I want to know how I can receive those helpful text messages that tell you how much won you have left.  I know other service providers have a number you can dial to receive such a message - I think I may have even dialed mine once on accident - so I'm fairly confident it does exist...

Ayudame, por favor!

on my LG phone I can call *81, then after the Korean message I just press 2. I hope that works for you.

Yes, please, please, please!!! If anyone out there is the RoKosphere knows how to find out your remaining balance for "free" minutes/smses on an Anycall - SK phone, please do share the wisdom.

Anything for KT services?

Or i'm going to have to go down to the global store and ask them to register me for a QOOK/SHOW login, it's a bit out of the way though and I don't have time.

There is a code to check your minutes for SK but damned if I remember it... Posting here in the hopes that I'll find out when someone remembers :-D

there is a korean program called dodol.  it's all in korean, but in the market, search for "dodol v2.3.10" and find the one with the red, blue, green bar graph icon.

you can put a widget on your home screen and it'll keep track of your data, minute, and txt usage (although it doesn't seem to work with txt on mine, it's always at 0)

it automatically restarts at the beginning of each month, so unless you dl it before the month begins, it will be inaccurate until the new month begins.

I don't know how accurate it is, i think it keeps track through the phone and not through you service provider.

anyways, hope this helps someone.

Thats not working for me. I did *11 and then i entered in my phone number and it said incorrect phone number. I tried it with 010 first then without the 010 then just 10. yes I inputted the number correctly.
SK is the same as SK telecom right?

For SK Telecom, just call 011-200-7277. Wait for the automated speaker, then press 2 for English. You should be able to check your balance and even add minutes, using a credit card, if you want to. 

If you use a credit card over the phone, then you should have a pin number for some reason. When I use a pre-paid refill card from Itaewon, it always tells me the same 4-digit pin number, so it's easy to get ahold of if you need it. 

I use this number all of the time, so I don't think SK users should have a problem with this:).

To check your iPhone usage go to Settings>General>Usage.  My iPhone updates this automatically.

I have LG/OZ -- I have dialed the *81 and then pushed 2 for English -- then I put in my phone number and it accepts it -- then it restarts all over again. Anyone else experiencing this? Is there a foreigner hotline?

Thanks

Ah excellent!  Thank you for posting here - I never knew how to find this out but dialling *81 then pressing 2 works for me.  I didn't have to enter my phone number though.  Thanks waygookers :)

I know this is a super old topic but, if you're SK, what you do is type *10 and then hit dial. Once connected, you will hear two beeps, and then you should receive a text message with your balance. Be warned though, sometimes it takes a few minutes, but it ought to work.

I just discovered this this week.

Thanks so much! This worked perfectly for me and the text message that came was on both Korean and English!
Now I no longer have to guess how much balance I have left on my phone.  :D
