Transferring airtime from mobile to mobile has become very popular as it is an easy and convenient way to load minutes. If you are with MTN, you can easily dial 555, choose option five and send some of your own airtime to another MTN number. You can send anything from R5 and it costs you nothing to send the airtime to a friend or family member. If you make use of internet banking you could also log on at any time, go to the prepaid section and send airtime to any network, including Cell C and Vodacom. All of the South African banks offer this, so if getting airtime online is easiest for you, then that is what you can do.
With internet banking you can also choose to load minutes regularly, so you won’t have to log on to do it, it will be automatic, and transferring airtime from mobile to mobile will be a simple task. Buying airtime online is the way to do it these days and if you have a cell phone that allows internet use, you could even do it all from your phone. All South African banks also allow you to buy airtime from an ATM and this is another way for you to transfer Vodacom, Cell C or MTN airtime to someone else.
These days, it’s not necessary to go to a store and stand in a queue to purchase airtime; in fact, you don’t even need to leave your house to top up your airtime. As everything can be done online, you can send airtime to anyone, across any network you like and all you need is an internet connection or a modern cell phone. Transferring airtime from mobile to mobile is free with some networks, but other networks will charge you a small transfer fee.
