How to Check STC Balance in Saudi Arabia – 5 Working Methods

In Saudi Arabia, STC (Saudi Telecom Company) is one of the largest telecommunications companies that offers a wide range of services to its customers, including voice calls, data, and SMS.

As an STC user, I know, it’s essential to stay informed about your balance to effectively manage your usage and plan your spending.

Today, I’m going to walk you through the various methods you can use to check your STC balance in Saudi Arabia.

Check STC Balance Through Dialling Code

The easiest, most convenient and the most used way by me is I check my STC balance by using a dialling code on my mobile phone.

Follow these simple steps:

  • Dial the code *166# on your mobile phone.
  • Wait for the system to check your balance.
  • Your remaining STC balance will be displayed on your mobile screen.

Pro Tip: If you want to check your internet balance, dial *888*5# on your mobile phone, and the system will inform you about your remaining data.

Check STC Balance with an SMS

Another method to check your balance is by sending an SMS.

Follow these steps:

  • Compose a new SMS.
  • Write the word “balance” (without quotes) in the message body.
  • Send the SMS to the number 900.
  • You will receive a message from Sawa (STC) containing your remaining balance.

Pro Tip: To check your internet balance via SMS, send an SMS with the code “2220” to the number 900. You will receive a message with the number of remaining MBs in your STC account.
