Webworks to access Sim credit balance



May I ask if there is something in the webworks API that I can use to access the credit balance of the sim card?

Re: Webworks to access Sim credit balance

To get balance you need to execute USSD command.

Webworks does not have api to call USSD command.

read more about USSD.

Hi everyone - I wanna write a virus to shovel all your cash off to Nigeria


I can't write this myself so I thought I'd come here and get someone who helps people out to write it for me


I will share the proceeds of my little project with you once you send me your bank account details and deposit one million dollars in my Western Union account




They're now spamming threads?


For those of you who don't know we're being targeted by conmen.


I've had two so far and BB are aware of the situation (I had a legit post blocked for a short while owing to some spam filter or another)


Its hard to work out how BB should handle this. They could add a captha if a member has < X messages / likes but that's easy to abuse.


Can we put our collective minds together to come up with a decent idea as to how to stop this kind of intrusion into a resource we all find useful without maing it impossible for a new member to as legit Qs we can help with?
