How to Share Airtime on MTN to MTN for The First Time
Before we dive into how to send airtime on MTN sim, there are certain things that I would want you to bear in mind. These are important tips you must follow to ensure your transactions’ success.
If you are looking for how to transfer airtime on MTN for the first time, please remember that you cannot do this with the default pin for MTN airtime transfer, which is ‘0000’. You have to change it to a new 4-digit pin.
If your MTN account balance is not enough to support the amount of airtime you are trying to send out, your transaction will not be successful. And you will get an error message informing you that your transaction was unsuccessful. To avoid this, always ensure that you have enough airtime.
- Firstly, you can’t transfer N50 when your account balance shows N49.
- You cannot transfer airtime in Kobo amount. For instance, you cannot transfer N50.65, but you can transfer N50 or N51, as the case may be. Your airtime must be in Naira amount.
- You can make as many transactions as you can in a day.
- The minimum amount that you can transfer in a transaction is N50. And the maximum amount per transaction is N5,000.
- MTN Nigeria allows you to transfer up to N50,000 to a single line or several other MTN lines in a day.
- You cannot transfer airtime on MTN without a transfer pin.
- The last thing that I want you to remember before we go into how to send airtime on MTN sim is that you must have up to N1,000 in your MTN account as a postpaid MTN user.
- But for the prepaid MTN users, you can start transferring when you have up to the amount you want to transfer, which must not be less than N50.
Methods of Sending Airtime on MTN
Now, let’s go into details on how to send airtime on MTN sim. There are two methods of sending airtime from your MTN line to other MTN lines: the SMS method and the USSD code method, which deals with the code to transfer airtime on MTN. Whichever one you choose to use, just know that MTN offers its share service free.
How to Send Airtime on MTN Through SMS
The first method I will share with you is the SMS method, which you can use to transfer airtime to other MTN users within a minute. To use the SMS method, follow these steps;
Go to the messaging app on your phone and compose a message like this ‘Transfer, receiver’s phone number, amount, transfer pin.’ And send it to 321.
For instance, if you want to transfer N50 airtime to 08033445566 and your transfer pin is 2244, all you have to do is to compose your message like this, ‘Transfer 08033445566 50 2244‘ and send it to 321.
MTN will ask you to confirm your transaction by texting ‘YES’ to 321. If you do not wish to proceed, you can just cancel the transaction; otherwise, confirm it. And N50 will be deducted from your account balance and sent to 08033445566. That’s all on how to send airtime on MTN through SMS.
How to Send Airtime on MTN Through the USSD Code
The second method on how to send airtime on MTN sim that we will look at today is the USSD method. This is the method that I use most of the time. It is also fast and convenient, just like the SMS method. To use the SMS method, follow these steps;
Open the phone app on your phone and dial *321*receiver’s phone number*amount*pin# and send it.
For instance, if you want to transfer N50 airtime to 80833445566, your transfer pin is 2244. Just dial *321*08033445566*50*2244# and press the send or OK button.
You will receive an SMS informing you of the success of your transaction.
