Q&A: USSD-pad step by step

14 May 2010Entry by

Lots of people ask me about USSD-widget recently claiming it’s not working for them, they cannot configure it properly or widget just doesn’t show on desktop. I googled a bit and found another way to use USSD codes (in the same project actually), that you may like. Just follow this tutorial.

First of all go to widget’s garage webpage in your N900 browser. There you can see 4 packages, not only widget itself. The thing I want to introduce is ussd-pad, let’s try this one.

If you already have ussd-widget installed you actually need to download ussd-pad only, if not install 3 packages: pexpect, ussd-common and ussd-pad (in this order).  To do this just click download link and choose to open in App manager for every of this packages.

After this you will have new application that shows phone-like keyboard where you can put the code to check account, charge or anything. For me there is no working codes I know of, so I receive something like “functionality unavailable” from the cell network.

This should help if you have no patience for widget configuration and basic one doesn’t work. Frankly I’m surprised that this package isn’t included in any of catalogues.
