Helpful iPhone Codes: Check your balance, data usage, pay your bill and more!

Things you can do with your iPhone? You can call, SMS, chat for free, play games, listen to music among others!

But what many of you dont know yet,  is that your iPhone allows you to type in a series of numbers  ”codes”, in order to get back certain information about  your mobile carrier, phone and billing details. And you don’t need to download an app for that!

Codes are a fast and easy way to obtained instant information about you and your phone at the palm of your hand.

So become an iPhone master, and share your knowledge with your friends. :)
