Without me having to read through all 42 pages in Tips, can someone tell me if there is a code to put in on my phone to check remaining data without having to connect to find dashboard? Having recently run out then unable to access internet.

There isn't, no, aside from (as you mention) your Dashboard, or a data tracking app for your device (providing you have a device with the capability of having one that is).

Most smartphones for example have them generally built-in, though they are not always 100% on the money.

At present you can only obtain remaining data when logged in. There seems to be some technical problem in obtaining information about data via those shortcodes.

 

But there's a special dashboard in development -- see https://community.giffgaff.com/t5/Announcements/Coming-soon-Dashboard-Light/m-p/22046843 -- which will show remaining data and other goodybag contents without having to be logged in. According to the announcement it's being tested with a small random sample of users at the moment.
