I’ve gotten lots of questions from people who want to know how they can transfer airtime from their airtel line to a non airtel line like mtn, glo or 9mobile. Well we’re going to find out right away
How to send airtime from airtel to mtn
Airtel Me2U allows you to ONLY send airtime from airtel to airtel. This means you can’t transfer airtime from your airtel line to mtn, glo or 9mobile line. You can only send to people using airtel line.
The only thing you can do at this point is to recharge their non airtel lines directly from your bank account. However if they still have their airtel lines, you can send them some airtime using this simple procedure below.
How to transfer credit from airtel to airtel
To transfer airtime from airtel to airtel is not rocket science, if you can follow this guide thoroughly, you’ll see it’s just a piece of cake.
I don’t know if you’ve heard anything like “Transfer Pin” before. A transfer pin is a short pin that grants you access to make airtime transfers.
Just like other telecom operators, you’ll need to have your airtel transfer pin before you can be able to transfer airtime from your airtel sim to another airtel sim.
If this is your first time of making transfer, you already have a transfer pin, you might be wondering how you got that? Before now airtel have already assigned a default transfer pin to all first timers in the airtel me2u service.
The default transfer pin is 1234 and if I can know about this, trust me most of your friends out there know about this too.
Inorder not to risk your airtime and prevent it from getting into wrong hands that might take advantage of your airtime without your notice and consent.
it’s better to change this default pin to a secret pin you can remember in order not to have unauthorized persons tampering with your airtime.
So how can you change this default pin to your own personal pin you can remember, well it’s very simple.
There are basically two ways of doing this, you change change your default transfer pin via text message or via ussd code.
If you want to use this method then using your phone; Go to message > create new message using this format;
PIN<space>Default Pin<space>New Pin, then send to this number 432
Example: Let’s say the New Pin you want to change to is 9173 (note: your default pin is 1234 and your new pin must not exceed four digits)
Then your message should go this way; PIN 1234 9173 and send to 432. Once you send this, you’ll recieve a notification confirming your change of transfer pin.
If you can’t go through all the above procedure, you can simply dial; *432#.Options you can chose from will be displayed to you;
Select option 4 (PIN Management)
Select 1 (Change of PIN)
Enter Current Pin (Current pin is your Old or default pin)
Enter New Pin ( the pin you want to change to)
That’s it! very straightforward right?
Ok if you followed the above procedure and successfully changed to a new transfer pin, you can now transfer your airtime to another airtel line. It’s very easy and time saving.
