I am using the rinkeby test network and i created a custom token using the basic code stub given on the ethereum.org site. So I transferred to another account which is also on the rinkeby network. But the balance is not reflected. Can anybody help ?

There are at least two ways to do this.

  1. Etherscan. Enter the address of smart-contract where the token is deployed. Go to "Token holders" (it will look like this).

  2. You can check the balance by calling script below via loadScript() in your geth or geth console (example).

    var contractAddress = '0x';
    var abi = [{"constant":false,"inputs":[{"name":"spender","type":"address"},{"name":"value","type":"uint256"}],"name":"approve","outputs":[{"name":"","type":"bool"}],"payable":false,"type":"function"},{"constant":true,"inputs":[],"name":"totalSupply","outputs":[{"name":"","type":"uint256"}],"payable":false,"type":"function"},{"constant":false,"inputs":[{"name":"from","type":"address"},{"name":"to","type":"address"},{"name":"value","type":"uint256"}],"name":"transferFrom","outputs":[{"name":"","type":"bool"}],"payable":false,"type":"function"},{"constant":true,"inputs":[{"name":"who","type":"address"}],"name":"balanceOf","outputs":[{"name":"","type":"uint256"}],"payable":false,"type":"function"},{"constant":false,"inputs":[{"name":"to","type":"address"},{"name":"value","type":"uint256"}],"name":"transfer","outputs":[{"name":"","type":"bool"}],"payable":false,"type":"function"},{"constant":false,"inputs":[{"name":"spender","type":"address"},{"name":"value","type":"uint256"},{"name":"extraData","type":"bytes"}],"name":"approveAndCall","outputs":[{"name":"","type":"bool"}],"payable":false,"type":"function"},{"constant":true,"inputs":[{"name":"owner","type":"address"},{"name":"spender","type":"address"}],"name":"allowance","outputs":[{"name":"","type":"uint256"}],"payable":false,"type":"function"},{"anonymous":false,"inputs":[{"indexed":true,"name":"owner","type":"address"},{"indexed":true,"name":"spender","type":"address"},{"indexed":false,"name":"value","type":"uint256"}],"name":"Approval","type":"event"},{"anonymous":false,"inputs":[{"indexed":true,"name":"from","type":"address"},{"indexed":true,"name":"to","type":"address"},{"indexed":false,"name":"value","type":"uint256"}],"name":"Transfer","type":"event"}];
    var token = web3.eth.contract(abi).at(contractAddress);
    
    function getBalance(addr) {
    token.balanceOf.call(addr, function (err, bal) {
        if (err) { console.error(err) }
        console.log('token balance for account ' + addr + ' is ' + bal.toString(10));
    })
    }
