*#*#4636#*#* and *#5005*7672# : USSD Codes for Checking SMSC on Androids and iPhone

If you are unable to check, set or change the Short Message Service Centre (SMSC) Number on your iPhone or Android phone via the Message app “setting”, you can make use of *#5005*7672# and *#*#4636#*#* USSD codes respectively.

On Android,

Dial *#*#4636#*#*.
You will see a “testing” menu. From that, select “Phone or Device Information”
Scroll to “SMSC”
Tap “Refresh”. This will most likely to retrieve the message center number from your operator

If you see something like; “+234” 145
Change only the “+234” to “your message centre number”

So for example. final code for me for Glo is : “+2348050001501” 145

Tap “Update” after entering the correct Message centre number.
