Everything you need to know about sharing Airtime on 9Mobile

Before going, here are some things that you need to know before you share Airtime on 9Mobile so it can be successful as there are rules guiding it.

  • You can only share airtime with fellow 9Mobile users. It is available to new and existing 9Mobile users with a prepaid or hybrid package.
  • A minimum balance is needed after you share airtime. You need to have a minimum balance of 10 naira after sharing airtime. For example, if you have a balance of 100 naira, it is not possible for you to share 100 naira, as a minimum of 10 naira is needed, and you would be able to share only 90 naira.
