Mobile Self Service

Banner DIAL2

The DStv Self Service tools have expanded to offer our customers a more cost effective alternative to telephone, web, mobile web and other current Self Service channels. DStv customers are now able to carry out essential Self Service tasks via USSD on entry level feature phones or the more sophisticated Smartphones.

All customers have to do is to dial  *120*MULTI(68584)# and select any one of the below transactions:

  • Balance enquiry
  • Resetting of error codes
  • Transaction History (last 5 transactions)
NB: It is essential that your contact details are updated, as the service will only recognise the cellphone number loaded on the DStv account. Update Account Details.

Remember: to update your details, you can either log on to Self Service or you can SMS “Your Smartcard Number + Email” to 32446 (SMS costs R1per SMS, VAS rates apply).
