The “magic” short code for checking the balance/saldo/credit of a pre-paid SIM cards is different for each and every mobile phone network operator in Cambodia. See the table below:
||Balance check code||Customer support|
|Cellcard Mobitel||012, 092, 017, 089, 077||#124#||012 812 812|
0979 097 097
|qbMore||013, 080, 083, 084||#132#||333
013 300 300
|Smart Axiata||010, 093||*888# also *222#, *100#, *121#, *132#, *124#||888
010 200 888
I did not include the codes for using the charge cards, because the code for that (which is different for each operator as well) is always printed on the card, so it is unlikely that anyone would benefit from that.
It seems that each GSM cell phone operator decided on inventing their own system of account maintenance and inquiry short codes and numbers instead of copying from each other.
In my opinion this is one thing that the Ministry of Posts and Telecommunications (MPTC) should have standardized. It is just confusing for phone users to have a different number/code for each operator; nobody benefits from it. Maybe somebody thought that it is one more aspect in making switching operators more difficult?
