How Do I Check the Remaining Balance on My iPhone?

If you use your iPhone frequently, it is a good practice to check your balance on a regular basis. If you find that you are approaching your talk time or data limits, reduce your usage to avoid overage charges. Check your AT&T or Verizon account balance using the iPhone's built-in menu system or by entering a shortcut on the keypad.
