The Post Covers
Automated Message Service
STC sends an SMS through an automated service whenever you are low at balance. The message comes from 808808. If you receive the message, then reply with ‘1‘. The STC emergency loan service will recharge your sim with 5 riyals.
As soon as you receive the credit, STC will send you a confirmation message. You can also check your balance by dialing *166#
Whenever you recharge your sim, Sawa makes an auto deduction of 5 riyals. In addition to that, the network doesn’t charge an extra amount as a service fee.
Keep in mind that the automated message works for 24 hours from its receiving time. If you don’t apply for an STC loan, the service expires. In that case, you will have to borrow the load from STC manually.
One more thing to be considered is that the service is only for the prepaid customers
