How To Transfer Data On Airtel[Different Methods]

You can use two different methods to transfer data to another airtel user. You either use “Airtel data me2u or Airtel data gifting.” Both require you have a data bundle on your sim, while the other does not require data.

I’ll be providing a step-by-step guide on how to use either method.

1. Airtel Data Me2U

You can transfer data from your Airtel sim card to another Airtel user using this data-sharing option. This function is also known as data sharing or data transfer. However, using this option would help if you had an active data bundle.

Furthermore, the data you’ll share is as valid as the one on your sim card. For example, if your airtel sim card has 4GB of active data bundle, you can use data me2u to transfer 200MB or more to another airtel user while the data is still active.

Please note that you can share data with a maximum of 2 recipients daily. You can share a maximum of 200MB each with 2 recipients daily.

Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to use Airtel data me2u

  • Open the dialer app on your phone.
  • Click the next option.
  • Type in “13- gifting and sharing” and click send
  • Click on “4 – data me2u.”
  • Click on “2 – send me2u from the existing allowance.”
  • It will ask you to enter the recipient’s number. (please note that you can only transfer data to an airtel number)
  • Enter how much data you want to transfer
  • Enter your transfer pin. (The default transfer pin is 1234. However, I’d recommend that you change the default pin to a personalized one before proceeding)
  • Confirm the transfer by clicking send. 

2. Airtel Data Gifting 

Airtel data gifting is another method of transferring data to friends and family with an airtel sim. Using your airtime balance, you can buy data directly for another user’s Airtel sim card. In other words, you can buy 4GB of data from Airtel using your airtime balance.

You can gift data to as many people as many times as you wish. There are no restrictions.

Here’s how to use airtel data gifting to transfer data

  • Open the dialer app on your phone.
  • Dial the USSD code *141#
  • Click the next option.
  • Click on “13- gifting and sharing.”
  • Click on “2 – data gifting.”
  • After clicking on “2,”. It will ask whether you want to buy monthly, weekly, daily, or mega data bundles.
  • Click on the one you want to buy and select the plan you want.
  • After selecting the plan you want, click on 1 to activate it.
  • After activating, you’ll be asked to input the recipient’s phone number. 
  • After filling in the number, click send and enter your transfer pin. (please note that the default pin is 1234, and you have to change it to a personalized one before you can use it.)
  • After filling in the pin, click send. The data plan will automatically be sent to the number as long as you have enough airtime in your balance.
