Most cell phone service providers offer a quick, easy way for customers to check their bill balance. On several services, customers can send a text to their service provider requesting a bill balance, which is sent to the phone as a free text message. Other services ask that you dial a toll-free number, which connects you to an automated system that lists the balance.
