Can anyone please help me find the MPESA menu on this phone. I recently switched from Symbian to WP8 and am still fumbling around.
Also how do I buy Safaricom data bundles via Lumia 520 because USSD like *544# ain't working!
To access MPESA go to Settings > Mobile network > SIM > Mpesa
Some Symbian phones like Nokia N900 also didn't support most USSD codes, same thing with Lumia 520. Hopefully a future update will fix this problem as there are thousands of complaints about this already.
For now you can buy Safaricom data bundles through:
- Direct recharge from scratch card i.e. star544star16 digit PIN# then
press OK (replace star with *)
- Sambaza internet from a normal phone with USSD
- OR through SMS, send price of the bundle to 450, e.g. to activate 80MB
send 100 to 450. Bundle prices here:
