    Tablet plan, check data balance without OLAM access

    We are lending a smartphone with a tablet plan to a person without access to the OLAM. Is there a way for that person to check the data balance?

    At least on my regular $45 plan doesn't work. I don't have the phone with the tablet plan with me today to test it out.

    There may not be a way to dial numbers with a tablet plan even if using a telephone. There also may be no way to receive a text message response to the query with a tablet plan. Some Star Codes are here:

    Actually, it turns out that you can dial numbers (at least the USSD codes) with a tablet plan and you can receive text messages. We have received account related messages in both at a tablet and at the phone using the same sim card and tablet plan.

    The *data# doesn't work on prepaid but *777*3# works on both the tablet plan and a regular phone plan.

    The link you provided defaults to postpaid, the link to go straight to the prepaid is here: https://www.att.com/esupport/article...less/KM1051624

    Although the option is there, it may not be that obvious.
