Movistar mobile number to check balance

Postby irismary » Fri Jul 30, 2010 1:35 pm

You used to be able to dial 333 to check the balance on PAYG mobiles. If you dial it now "el numero no existe" Can anyone tell me the number they use now?

Try 2266 option 1..... and an automatic text will appear with your balance and date of expiry.....

It costs you 18c for the balance.

Thank you - the*133# is the correct one. Knew I'd get an answer here!

I rarely use it, as there is always a reminder when the balance goes below 3€, but think it may be 15c?

I’ve been told that you can use it once a day free; more than this, there is a charge but I don’t know what it is.

You can check your balance online at Movistar.es for free as often as you like.

Can't give you a link if you're already logged in with your number and password, but just click on "saldo" in the menu on the left, then on "consulta tu saldo" in the main window.

*133# no longer seems to work for me

In response I get a message "Connection problem or invalid MMI code" (I know that the connection is ok) and incidentally the previously used 2266 option 1, also no longer seems to work......

My phone is a Moto G4 with a dual sim, and I am on the Movistar payg tariff at €9 every four weeks. Otherwise the phone works abolutely fine.....

In the absence of a grand daughter out here, I wondered if any of you experts might be able to help me.......

TIA

Is there still a charge for that? I topped up my PAYG phone on the 20th and have checked numerous times online but the balance hasn't changed. I think I'll have to go into the shop to ask where my money is. I only need to top up once every 6 months to keep the SIM active.

I just checked my balance twice within five minutes, and the balance reduced by 18cents between the first and second call......

My little contribution to our collective knowledge!

Cheaper to set up a password and then check online then. I would have run out of balance if I had paid 18c for every time I've checked to see if my recharge has been credited over the past week!

Just noticed this post and thought I'd check my balance online which I rarely ever do.

I am with Movistar Fusion Radio (ideal for campo living, no fibre) - wireless internet, landline and two mobiles. My bill is around 55€ per month however when I checked the online balance it appears that since February I've been paying around 70 to 80€. When I checked each itemised monthly bill it appears that every 7 days at 11.45pm 2.89€ is being paid to something called PlayUp900907110 :wtf: haven't got a clue what it's for as I don't subscribe to anything else with Movistar. I think a visit to a Movistar store is on the cards very soon. I'll post again when I get an answer.

cheers terry

Update my last post

I visited a Movistar shop, explained the problem the staff member called the 'cancellation department' after being cut off a number of times she eventually got through and had the PlayUp900907110 number blocked by Movistar online payments, we'll be reimbursed the money.

Unbelievable how payments can be taken from your account via Movistar by a third party! - Check your Factura!
