USSD – Unstructured Supplementary Service DataTerm used in Cellular / Mobile Service ,is a protocol used by GSM cellular telephones to communicate with the service provider’s computers.

USSD can be used for prepaid main balance check,data balance check, wap browsing , prepaid callback service , mobile-money services , location based content services , menu-based information services , and as part of configuring the phone on the network.

USSD messages are up to 182 alphanumeric characters in length. Unlike SMS service messages, USSD messages create a real-time connection during a USSD session.

The connection remains open, allowing a two-way exchange of a sequence of data. This makes USSD more responsive than services that use SMS.
