In this blog post, the code to recharge / top up your 9mobile line – formerly and still popularly known as Etisalat in Nigeria – is what I will be showing you.
Making calls and sending SMS are the top basic reasons why people purchase mobile phones and SIM cards. None of the two will be possible without airtime.
So, airtime is important. You would agree with me that your cell phone will be less useful for communication if your airtime balance reads 0.00 Naira.
How do you get airtime? It is simple; take money and purchase a recharge from a vendor and load it on your phone. Loading airtime requires recharge code and every mobile network has its own unique one.
As a 9Mobile customer, the code to recharge really should not be a question to ask unless you just joined the network newly. However, it is still possible for old customers to forget this easy code or maybe come to confirm if it is still the same as the company rebranded. Let’s learn.
9Mobile Recharge Code
To recharge your 9Mobile SIM, the code to use is *222*Recharge Pin#. Simply dial the code and send from your 9Mobile SIM and your SIM will be credit with the airtime amount.
To ensure that your recharge is successful, make sure that you enter the 15 digits of the recharge pin correctly. Incorrect recharge makes your SIM subject to being barred if done up to 5 times.
What you should do next after recharging your line is to check your account balance. You should be credited after recharging but to clear all doubts, it is advisable that you check your balance.
To do that, the code to use is *232#. Once dialed, you will get an onscreen notification and SMS alert containing your airtime balance.
Other Way(s) to Recharge your line on 9Mobile
What are the other means via which you can recharge and get airtime as a 9Mobile customer? I’ll show you a few.
9Mobile More Credit
Sometimes, you might want to recharge your 9Mobile line but you have no money on you. Do you know you can still recharge? Yes, you can via the 9Mobile More Credit.
This platform allows to to recharge and pay later when you have the money. But you first need to meet some certain requirements; how do you know if you meet these requirements?
The system will notify you if you are qualified or not. If you are not, it will also tell you what to do to qualify.
If you are qualified, then use this code to recharge – *665*Amount#. The amounts you can recharge includes N50, N100, N200, N500, N1,000 and N2,000.
Using this service is not free, you are being charged 15% of the airtime amount as service charge. What this means is that you do not get the amount you recharge in full, 9Mobile credits you with only 85% of it.
However, when you want to pay back, you will pay in full. Pay back is automatic and the amount is deducted whenever you recharge your SIM.
If your 9Mobile SIM is connected with your bank account, you can recharge directly from your bank account by using *737*Airtime Amount#.
Dialing this code will introduce you to a new menu where you’ll follow the onscreen prompt to complete your purchase. Note that this service is not active for all Nigerian banks.
Another method to recharge your line on 9Mobile is by using their online eShop. To do this.
- Visit www.9mobile.com.ng
- Click on eShop from the drop down menu
- Select Buy Airtime
- Enter your phone number, airtime amount and e-mail address (All are compulsory)
- Click on Buy Airtime
- Pay using your debit card. All Nigerian cards are accepted (MasterCard, Visa and Verve)
- If your details are correct, your airtime account will be credited and money will be deducted from your bank account.
This method is ideal if you do not have airtime but you have data. However, only smart phone users can access it as it requires the internet.
Getting to this point, it is certain you have found the primary interest that brought you to this page which is the recharge code of 9mobile though not only that, but other useful information as well.
