How to transfer mtn airtime to another mtn line

Do you have an mtn sim and don’t know how to transfer mtn airtime to another mtn line? well it’s not difficult at all, I’m going to walk you through on how to do that.

With close to 60 million subscribers, mtn remains the largest telecommunications network in Nigeria and largest in Africa with over 235 million subscribers.

Mtn started and has its headquarter in Johannesburg, South Africa but still operates in over 20 countries including Nigeria. Infact one-third of the company’s revenue comes from Nigeria.

I’m not surprised because almost everyone in Nigeria has an mtn sim if not for calls you’re definitely using it for browsing as we all know their fast network is second to none.

So back to the topic of how to transfer mtn airtime to another mtn line, like I said it’s actually very easy, all you need is your mtn sim, transfer pin, recipient’s number and of course your mtn airtime.

You must have anytime on your sim o, don’t try to transfer airtime when your account balance is reading -499, you’re owing mtn and still want to transfer on top the one you’re owing? nawa lol.

Don’t mind me but it’s not possible you must have a valid airtime before you can make transfers. See how to transfer mtn airtime to another mtn line below

How to transfer mtn airtime/credit to another mtn line

With mtn ‘share n sell’ you can transfer your airtime or credit to your family or friends using mtn sim but first you need to reset your mtn transfer pin.        

How to change transfer pin on mtn

Before you can be able to transfer mtn airtime to another mtn line you need to change your default transfer pin which is 0000.

This pin was automatically assigned to you by mtn for making transfers, but you wouldn’t want to use that would you? I guess not, you’re smarter than that.

For security reasons, it’s important to change this transfer pin first to your own personal pin that you can remember in order to avoid illegal transfer of your airtime from unauthorized people. Now how do you do that?
There are basically two ways of changing or resetting your mtn transfer pin

1. Through text message
To use this method using your mobile device just go to message > create message and write using this format –

  • Default pin[space]New pin[space]New pin and send to this mtn number 777

Example: if the personal pin you want to change to is 2938 then your message should go like this;

  • 0000 2938 2938 send to 777

Make sure you repeat your new pin twice like I did up there, it’s very important for confirmation. After sending the text, you’ll receive a notification message confirming your change of pin.

Remember: 0000 was your default pin and you won’t be needing it again while 2938 is the new pin you’ll be transferring with and don’t share it with anyone.

If you can’t go through all the message method of changing your transfer pin don’t worry, there is an easier method of doing that, follow through below.

Mtn just made it easier to send credit from your line to another mtn line. All you have to do is to;

  • Enter Amount (That’s the airtime amount you want to transfer to the other mtn line)
  • Enter PIN (That’s your transfer pin)

Another way of sending airtime from your mtn to another mtn is by dialing;

  •  *600*Recipient’s phone no.*Airtime amount*Transfer pin#

Example: if you want to send N500 to this mtn line 08123456789 with your new pin 2938 just dial;
*600*08123456789*500*2938# and then send/call

Very easy right? please note that this service is totally free of charge, and you can only send N50 – N5000 at a time. You are not allowed to send below N50 and above N5000 to someone at a time.

However you are also not allowed transfer airtime containing kobo, example; you can’t transfer N500.50, you can only transfer N500 don’t add 50kobo to it, you get me?
