It works with all types of phones.
With this code, you do not need to go to the ATM machine to check your bank balance. This comes in handy when you are expecting money and yet you have not gotten the alert, no need to force yourself to buy credit from the bank before confirming whether you have received the money or not as you would not like checking your balance in such a manner always even though that is another alternative of checking your bank balance.

This new code sends the account balance directly without you doing any transaction first.
