You can reset your Airtel transfer PIN by sending an SMS (text message) to 432 in this format; PIN {space} Default PIN {space} New PIN.

Let’s see if we can use SMS.

How to Transfer Airtime on Airtel to MTN Via SMS

I would have loved to say something like “Go to the message app on your mobile phone, create a new message in this format; #******# and send to ###.

Will that work?

Actually, NO!

This is because Airtel doesn’t have a feature that allows you to send SMS (text message) to a specific number to get your airtime transferred from Airtel to MTN.

Similar to transferring airtime from Glo to MTN, there is no SMS method to transfer credit or airtime from Airtel to MTN.

Once again, Airtel doesn’t offer such a feature.

If this doesn’t exist, are there any other methods or tricks on how to transfer airtime from Airtel to MTN?

Yes, of course! The main question is; will it work? Let’s see!

How to Transfer Airtime From Airtel to MTN by Calling Customer Care

If you’re reading this post carefully and line by line, then you should remember I made mention of calling customer care earlier.

We at Networkwayout don’t write or create our posts just by copying from what other people say. Instead, we do our original research.

As part of our research for this guide is the customer care line that we called.

After telling us that the USSD code isn’t working, he further explained that we can only transfer airtime from Airtel to Airtel, and not from Airtel to other networks.

He also said that customer care can’t help initiate an airtime transfer transaction, that it is to be done by the sender him/herself from Airtel to Airtel.

That means there is no way the Airtel customer care can help you transfer airtime from your Airtel number to another Airtel number, not to talk of transferring airtime from Airtel to MTN.

Therefore, how to transfer airtime from Airtel to MTN isn’t a question that even the Airtel customer care can find the solution you need to, the only thing they can do is just to tell you “IT IS NOT POSSIBLE”.
