To transfer airtime from etisalat to etisalat (9mobile) is one of the easiest transfers you can make. Unlike the transfer procedures of other telecom operators like mtn, glo or airtel, to transfer airtime from etisalat to etisalat is very easy and straightforward, stick to this post to find out what I mean.
Etisalat, though being the fourth largest telecom operator in Nigeria, has over 25 million subscribers in Nigeria and still counting.I’m not surprised because etisalat (now rebranded to 9mobile) have being giving to their customers back to back lots of goodies and offers that makes you not want to leave the network.
I don’t even want to start talking about their cheap call rates, data plans with not just 3G but superfast 4G internet services! and lots of other amazing offers, but that’s not what we’re here for today. We want to know how to transfer airtime from etisalat to etisalat, so let’s dive into it.
Like I said earlier sharing airtime from etisalat to etisalat is very easy and straightforward, no much pressing and sending but just like other networks, you must have a transfer pin.
Transfer pin is a short pin or code that will grant you access to making transfer, just like the security unlock pin of your phone, without this transfer pin you won’t be able to transfer your airtime to anybody.
But before now, etisalat have by default assigned a transfer pin to you which is 0000. If it’s your first time of transferring that is the pin automatically assigned to you for making transfers.
You might be wondering how I know this, it’s because is the same pin given to everyone that is yet to make a transfer of airtime from their etisalat to another etisalat, now imagine how many other people out there that know this.
Which is why you must change that pin to your own personal pin to avoid other people from making transfers with your phone without your knowledge.
Changing this transfer pin will keep your airtime secured and safe as no other person but you know your new transfer pin.
The ussd code for changing your etisalat transfer pin or code is *247*Default Pin*New Pin#
Default pin: This the pin that was already assigned to you for making transfers, which 0000.
New pin: This is the personal pin you want to change to and start using as your transfer pin. Just select 4 digits random numbers you can remember, lets say you selected 5768.
Now using your phone dial; *247*0000*5768# then send, you’ll will receive a notification immediately confirming your change of pin.
From then, that will be the new pin you’ll be using for your transfer of airtime from etisalat to etisalat.
Having known how to change etisalat transfer pin, let’s now proceed to how you can use it and transfer airtime from your etisalat to your family and friends using etisalat.
To transfer airtime from your etisalat to another etisalat, you must have your new transfer pin, the phone number of the person you’re sending the airtime to and of course you must have airtime ( I mean real airtime that you purchased not bonus airtime, you can dial *232# to confirm if you have airtime).
Having all that you can now use this ussd code to transfer airtime; *223*New Pin*Airtime Amount*Recipient’s Phone Number#
Example; Let’s say the etisalat number you want to transfer airtime to is 08019876543 and your new pin is 5768 with the airtime amount you want to transfer to be N200
Then you should dial; *223*5768 *200*08019876543# and send. Once you send it, you’ll receive a message that will want you to confirm or cancel the transfer.
Crosscheck the recipient’s phone number, the airtime and transfer pin, if everything is correct and in order, then press 1 to confirm, if there’s a mistake or they are not in order press 2 to cancel, then correct everything and try again.
If you confirmed the transfer by pressing 1, you will immediately receive a message confirming this transfer and the airtime will be deducted from your account and sent to the recipient’s account.
Note: Any transfer made can not be reversed, make sure you crosscheck before confirming. You can’t transfer airtime amount containing kobo, example; you can’t transfer N200.80 but you can transfer N200, you grab?
