MTN Uganda is the biggest telecommunications company ruling the local scene with a bigger margin away from its next inline competitor Airtel Uganda. With its unending promotional offers taming it as the most popular provider in the country, we can’t help but compile a list of USSD shortcodes you need to know in order to keep in line with the best subscription packages.

How to use the MTN Uganda Shortcodes
Unlike Airtel Uganda shortcodes that seem to be surrounded by the *100# main services code with Africell taming *143# as its main code, MTN has a series of Shortcodes with different services embedded to them with *160# tamed as it’s head services version for the Yello camp.
Through the *160# menu, you can use services like My Paka Paka, access your Account option, send call me back messages, and share airtime via Me2U. However, for Mobile Money services, you can either use *165# or *185# for the full menu with submenus housing Momo Pay and other account management services.
However, some MTN services are usually embedded under its all-in-one MY MTN App just like its previous Gaga Wednesday offers that came to an end earlier this year paving way for newer offers including a revamped Momo Nyabo promotion.
