If you are an Econet subscriber you might have noticed that all USSD services are currently not working. Any attempt to use the network results in a pop up message about a “connection problem or Invalid MMI code”
From conventional airtime recharge, balance inquiry, recharge via EcoCash or any other EcoCash service for that matter, it seems the network is experiencing some service disruption.
Although we haven’t received any official statement or seen any explanatory SMSes from Econet regarding this challenge, the frustrating situation might be related to the network upgrade that Econet alerted its subscribers of via SMS yesterday.
If you need to top up your airtime the alternative solution right now is through electronic recharge which you can get done at any Econet shop. The EcoCash service is however not available entirely.
The problem with the USSD service has been rectified and you can now access any related product or service, including EcoCash.
