How to Transfer Airtime on MTN to Airtel Via SMS
Unlike Glo airtime transfer, it is very possible to transfer airtime on MTN via SMS (text message).
But is it possible to transfer airtime from MTN to Airtel via SMS?
To be sincere, NO! It is not possible.
It is very clear that MTN has a feature that allows its customers to send SMS (text message) to a specific number and get their airtime transferred in a snap.
But however, that is only available for MTN to MTN airtime transfer.
Yes, you’re right! MTN doesn’t allow you to transfer airtime to Airtel via SMS.
If that isn’t possible, let’s call the customer care line and see if they can help.
How to Transfer Airtime From MTN to Airtel by Calling Customer Care
I would have loved to say something like “just call the MTN customer care line and tell them to transfer from your airtime balance to an Airtel number/line. And BOOM! They’ll do it instantly”.
You should know that we at Networkwayout don’t write or create our posts just by copying what other people say.
Instead, we do our own original research, then gather our information, and publish it on the web for people like you.
In common sense, what I mean is that we called the MTN customer care line and spoke to an agent who then told us that it is not possible to transfer airtime from MTN to Airtel. And further explained that one can only transfer airtime from MTN to MTN line.
Literally, that means there is no way MTN customer care can help you transfer airtime from your MTN number to an Airtel line.
Therefore, how to transfer airtime from MTN to Airtel isn’t a question that even MTN customer care can find the solution you need to.
Using the MTN Website
It is no doubt that the MTN website has made a lot of self-care services easier than memorizing toms of codes and calling customer care over and over and over again.
With just a few clicks, you can perform any self-care services on the MTN website very fast and easier.
But can you transfer airtime from MTN to Airtel there?
The short answer to this question is NO!
Even as the MTN website covers almost all the self-care services needed by its subscribers, they do not have a feature to transfer airtime to Airtel network, nor do they allow you to transfer airtime to other networks.
How to Send Airtime From MTN to Airtel
You can send credit from MTN to Airtel by simply going to a nearby retail store, buying the amount of MTN airtime you want to send, going to the message app on your mobile phone, creating a new message, entering the recharge card pin, and send to the MTN user you want to transfer airtime to.
Also, you can just easily buy airtime for the Airtel number via your mobile app or bank USSD token.
And that’s the only solution to transferring or sending airtime or credit from MTN to Airtel.
If you’re expecting any USSD code, SMS method, or website hacking trick of transferring airtime from your main balance on your MTN line to an Airtel line, I’m so sorry to disappoint you that nothing of such exists.
