Idea USSD Codes: The USSD (Unstructured Supplementary Service Data) is a Global System for Mobile (GSM) communication technology that is used to send text between a mobile phone and an application program in the network. It is a protocol used by GSM cellular telephones to communicate with the service provider's computers.
The applications may include prepaid roaming or mobile chatting. USSD is similar to Short Messaging Service (SMS), but unlike SMS, USSD transactions occur during the session only. With SMS, messages can be sent to a mobile phone and stored for several days if the phone is not activated or within range. The Wireless Application Protocol (WAP) supports USSD.
