With the advent of self-care mobile apps, the use of USSD and Shortcodes has been drastically reduced. Over the last few years, telecom operators in India have managed to tweak their mobile apps to offer a refined experience which led to the entire downfall of USSD codes. Back in the time when mobile apps were unavailable, several prepaid and postpaid users relied on the USSD codes to check the available data balance, activate internet packs, check for the available recharge offers and so on. However, things have changed now as the users are performing the same functions via the self-care apps of telcos. For example, Airtel is offering Airtel Thanks mobile app, whereas Vodafone has My Vodafone app, which has several features on offer. Nevertheless, there are still some users who will be looking to do their short tasks right from the mobile dialer app itself and not by going into the My Vodafone app or Airtel Thanks app. Continue reading to know more about the Vodafone USSD and Shortcodes currently available to the prepaid users.
