How to Check Your Glo Data Balance Through SMS
You can check your Glo data balance through an SMS code. The receiver’s code you will be sending the SMS to is 127. To get started, text INFO to 127. When you do, a detailed message on your current data balance, your plan, and the expiry date will be sent to you.
When using the SMS format, ensure that the message is sent in capital letter. Do not add any other message except INFO.
The SMS method works effectively when you are using a device that doesn’t have the # and * button or when any button among the two is faulty. Sending the SMS is free.
How to Check Glo Data Online
Assuming you are surfing the internet and about to download an app but you don’t know if your remaining data would be enough. Instead of closing your browser, you can just use the internet to check your current data plan. All you need to do is visit glo.com to access the Glo HSI portal. The Glo HSI portal is a self-service portal available for all Glo subscribers. The portal is used to get detailed information about your data plan.
When you visit the page, your remaining data and the validity date will be displayed on the self-care page. If you are using a web browser, the self-care page is located on the right-hand side of the screen.
However, it is important to note that the GLO HIS portal is only available on the GLOBACOM network. This implies that it cannot be assessed using other networks.
How to Check Glo Data Bonus
Most times, when you subscribe or recharge your Glo account, the Glo network gives you bonus data on recharge or subscription.
Usually, when you use any of the methods explained above, the reply would include your bonus data alongside your main data. You can simply dial #122# to view your bonus data.
Nevertheless, using the *127*0# provides you with detailed information on both the bonus data and the main data. Most times, the main data and the bonus data are added together and the total is displayed.
