I Forgot My MTN Share N Sell Pin

Before you can do share and sell on MTN, you need a transfer pin. If you have created it already and probably forgot the pin, you want to recover it. Firstly, you need the following details: the mother’s maiden name, date of birth, and state of origin. All details must correspond with the ones you provided when registering your SIM card.

There are actually two ways to recover or reset your forgotten pin. You should try the second if the first one I will be explaining below does not work.  The second is by reaching out to the customer care department for help. Call 180 or the new code 300 and ask to speak with a customer care representative.

Here is the first solution to your forgotten transfer pin:

  • Dial the new code *321#
  • Select SME Data Share
  • Then select the option or number that says Pin Retrieval & Reset
  • Now, enter your mother’s maiden name as requested.
  • Enter your date of birth.
  • Type in your state of origin
  • If the information you provided is the same as the one you used to register your SIM card, you will be sent your forgotten password.
