How To Transfer Airtime On MTN In South Africa 2024

In this article, I will show you how to transfer Airtime on MTN in South Africa. For those subscribers using MTN in South Africa, you can transfer Airtime on the MTN network using the USSD code *136*3# or the *136*6328*Amount**Recipient# USSD Code.

Advancements in technology in this generation have made communications very easy and, to be quite frank, cheaper than in previous decades. One of these advancements is Airtime, which is charged to give you time to send or receive communications from anywhere in South Africa.

Sometimes, you could run out of airtime, or a friend or family member might need airtime. This article will show you how you can transfer some of that excess airtime you have or recharge an MTN scratch card directly to another MTN user mobile number.

How to Transfer Airtime on MTN(3 simple methods)

Transferring airtime from your MTN account to another number.

To use this method, you must first have airtime on your MTN account that can be transferred to the account you wish to transfer to. If you don’t have any credit on your MTN account, ensure you buy and recharge, or this won’t work.

To transfer airtime on MTN;

  • Open your phone’s dialer app, and dial *136*3#.
  • Follow the prompts provided to transfer airtime on MTN in South Africa.

Alternatively, you can dial 141 and follow the voice instructions provided by the automatic voice prompts. Please note that this service gives you the option of sending only airtime on MTN. If you are considering sending other plans such as data, voice or SMS on MTN, please use the method I have provided below.

The third method is beneficial because it doesn’t require you to follow many prompts that might confuse you. To use this method, dial *136*6328*Amount Of Airtime*Number of Recipient#, where the amount of airtime is the amount you want to send, and the recipient number is the MTN number of the person you want to transfer airtime to.

What You Need To Know Beforehand

Before sharing airtime between MTN numbers, avoid mistakes by counter-checking the recipient’s number to ensure you do not send it to the wrong number. Also, ensure that you enter the correct amount so you don’t send more MTN airtime than you had budgeted.

Note that when you share airtime on the MTN network in South Africa, this process is irreversible, so sharing this airtime with the wrong person or sending the incorrect amount cannot be corrected by MTN.
