All You need To Know About Borrowing Airtime From Your Various Networks


We network users borrowing airtime from our various Telecom networks is the best means where by we enjoy their service. Borrowing airtime is just for us to use for the main time when we need it and most of us don't know how to borrow airtime. Most of us can do but we misuse it or do not pay back rather we dispose the sim card. Therefore how to borrow airtime from all networks is what I want to discuss in this today's article.


How To Borrow Airtime From MTN. Via MTN XtraTime.

MTN XtraTime allows only eligible customers access airtime on credit when their account balance is too low to have ordinarily continued with an on-going call. The airtime received on credit can be used for all chargeable activities on the MTNN network.

Who Can Utilize MTN XtraTime?
MTN XtraTime will be available to active prepaid MTNN customers.
Other. Eligibility criteria include:

  • SIM must be prepaid
  • SIM must be registered
  • Customer's main account balance must be between N0 and N12
  • MTN's consideration of Customer's monthly recharge frequency
  • MTN's consideration of Customer's average monthly spend
  • Customer must have paid up any previous XtraTime request and the charges associated thereto.

How to access MTN XtraTime
Customers can access MTN XtraTime by dialling *606# .
The following Menu will then be displayed:
1. Check Eligibility Status
2. Request for XtraTime
3. Check XtraTime Balance
4. XtraTime Transaction History
5. AboutXtraTime
6. Exit
Customers can then subsequently check eligibility status, request for XtraTime and learn more about XtraTime by dialling the corresponding USSD code.

Receiving MTN XtraTime credit
When an eligible customer requests for XtraTime, the XtraTime credit will beloaded in a special XtraTime account once the request is approved. Customers can check their Special XtraTime account balance by dialling *606#. But sad as MTN Has Now Increased Their Xtratime Interest Rate To 15%. That is they will deducte 15% from the airtime you borrowed. 

Using MTN XtraTime
Airtime advanced with MTN XtraTime can be used for all
chargeable activities on the MTNN network. Once XtraTime credit is exhausted, customers will not be able to perform any other chargeable activities until the XtraTime borrowed is paid for.

MTN XtraTime Service charge
MTN XtraTime attracts a service charge of 10% of the airtime borrowed. For example, if N100 XtraTime is requested for, a service fee of N10 is first deducted, and the remaining N90 isbcredited to the customersspecial XtraTime account.

Paying back MTN XtraTime
Customers can use the usual balance enquiry command
(*556# ) to check the outstanding XtraTime amount owed. This command will return a negative value showing the outstanding XtraTime amount. This owedamount will be recovered at the very next recharge made by the customer.

In cases where the recharge amount is less than the outstanding XtraTime amount, subsequent recharges will
be used to recover whatever is outstanding. The recharge can be via any of the available physical or
logical channels.
