Steps to Share or Transfer Airtel Data Bundle (MB) Plans with Friends

A lot of complains has been made about the former procedure which happens to be true. Airtel recently updated their data bundle plans and sharing codes.

This part is created to guide you on the proper steps to take when buying a data bundle plan for someone else or sharing your with family and friends.

Note that the recent data share capability on the Airtel Nigeria’s network is code-named SmartSHARE and lets you have access to:-

  • Me 2 U:  That allows sharing from an already purchased bundle. “giving out” or “sharing” from an already purchased data bundle from an “owner customer” to other customers. In this case, the given out data subscription bundle will reside in the other customer’s wallet. Only one customer can be Me2U’d at a time.
  • Gifting: That allows buying a data bundle plan from the “owner customer” to another customer; data bundles in this category includes all the bundles listed on Airtel’s list of bundle plans and Airtel Android Data bundles.

Now to share Airtel MB in the latest update, you will need dial *141# USSD code on your phone, press * from the next window and then select either data share or gifting from the options provided.
