I am a Telecel subscriber and would like to access the options for services that require USSD codes. I'm not too sure if it is my phone or it is the carrier that fails to provide me this option.

How do I tune on the function of USSD codes or do I need to download some kind of software or something else?

I suggest you contact your service provider. They should be able to advise you and explain whether yo phone supports USSD. Ive heard many Windows Mobile users complain of the same thing.

I noticed that USSD codes (i.e codes checking for balance etc, eg: *123#) are not well supported on our Lumia. Sometimes it really takes ages to process and display the response, and many times it would just hang on 'waiting…' screen and finally you have to dismiss it and try again.

Again the response oriented USSD codes doesn't support at all. As in my Telecel prepaid, on dialing on *140# I get a response screen with selection. If it sometimes displays me the option menu, there is no space given to input my selected option.

Do you get the same issue on Econet? I have not tried using an Econet sim card (or even NetOne) but it will be interesting to know if this is network specific or it is the handset
