Hi guys, how did your weekend fare? I understand that many of us have already registered for our Bank Verification Number. But have you ever been in a situation where you have to retrieve your BVN to process a bank transaction and you were not with the code? Even if you have your BVN code saved in your diary, you may still forget this item at home.
This post will give you steps to check your BVN number right on your mobile phone without the need for internet, anywhere anytime. Did I hear you say really? Yes, you can actually use a specific USSD code to check BVN on gsm enabled hand held devices ranging from your Nokia torch light to android to windows phone.
To get your BVN from your cell phone, all you need do is to dial this code: *565*0# on the particular GSM line you used for the BVN registration and then hold on for some seconds. Your BVN verification number would then be displayed right on the phone screen.
This BVN code for mobile works on all gsm lines in Nigeria which include Airtel, Glo, MTN and Etisalat. Also note that your line would be charge airtime value of N10 everytime you use this mobile code to check your BVN. This too me is still fair considering the hazzle involved in trying to retrieve your BVN when you are stuck at the banking hall. Hey guys, what do you think?
