As we all know, Mtn is the largest telecommunications network in Nigeria with over over 60 million subscribers from Nigeria and also remains the largest in Africa with over 235 million subscribers, with their headquarters in Johannesburg, South Africa.

This company introduced Mtn Share n Sell – A service that enables you to transfer airtime from your own mtn account to another line.

This means you can literally send credit/airtime right from you own account and it will be transferred to another person’s airtime account.

Most people are already familiar with this especially people that always transfer to another mtn line, but today’s question is can you transfer to another line like airtel, glo or 9mobile?

The only way you can transfer airtime from mtn to airtel, glo or 9mobile is to transfer directly from your bank account. This is the thing with the normal transfer but the only difference is that your are buy them airtime directly from your bank account.

That airtime that would have being deducted from your account balance would now be deducted from your bank account. This is still better than moving out to buy airtime from retail stores and sending to them as buying them directly from your bank saves you a lot of stress and you can’t do the former when you’re low on cash at hand.

However if you have family or friends that are using mtn line and want to transfer airtime to them from your own mtn line, it’s actually very easy. Here’s how you do it.

First of all you to change your default pin – This is a pin already given to you by mtn for making transfers.
The pin is 0000 but for security reasons, you need to change this pin to your own personal pin before you can be able to make transfers.

It’s important you change this default pin to your  own personal pin to avoid illegal transfers from unauthorized persons. See how to change it below

Then type this in your message; 0000 2543 2543 and send to 777
