If you are on the Cell C mobile phone network then it is a pretty simple task to check your remaining airtime if you are a prepaid (or even a contract) customer via their nifty little balance enquiry feature.

For prepaid or contract subscribers, simply dial 140 from your cellphone to hear an update on your remaining airtime or SMS bundle. Alternatively, dial *147# and select option 3 or as a last resort SMS ‘bal’ or ‘balance’ to 14302 and Cell C will automatically send you a SMS containing your remaining aiairtime, balance, check balance, mobile phone, mobile network, cellphone, cell crtime balance.

And how nice of them, all these options are free.

Nice :)
