How To Transfer Airtime From Glo To Glo
The simple code to transfer airtime from one Glo user to another is *131#. However, there are other methods you can use to transfer airtime from one user to another.
Transferring airtime is not limited to the USSD method alone. You can also transfer airtime to another user by calling customer care. You can also transfer airtime by sending an email to customer care.
I’ll explain step-by-step how to use any of the methods used in transferring airtime on Glo.
1. Using USSD Code To Transfer Airtime
USSD is the most used and probably the easiest method for transferring airtime from one Glo user to another. This method works with any phone as long as it has connectivity to the Glo service.
Here’s how to use USSD to transfer airtime
- Open your dialer app. (If you are using a button phone, all you need to do is ignore this step and follow the next one)
- Dial *131# and click send
- After sending, Glo will require you to input the recipient’s phone number. The amount you want to send and the transfer pin.
- If this process is too long, you can simply dial *131*recepient’s number*amount to be transferred*transfer pin#
Please note that the default pin for transferring airtime on Glo is 00000. However, you cannot use the default pin to transfer; you have to change it to a personalized one before you can use it to transfer airtime.

2. Calling Customer Care To Transfer Airtime
Not everyone likes using USSD codes to get things done on their phone, or the USSD method looks too complicated for them. This method is for you if you’re one of those people. You can call customer care to assist you in transferring airtime to another Glo user.
Here’s how to call customer care to transfer airtime
- Open your dialer and call 121, the official Glo customer care number.
- Ask to speak with a customer care representative.
- You might have to wait a few minutes before a representative is available. It depends on the number of people they are attending to.
- When your call is being answered, tell he/she that you need help transferring airtime to another user.
- He/she will ask you some personal questions like when did you register your sim card or what’s your mother’s maiden name just to be sure you’re the owner of the sim.
- Once your identity is verified, the customer care representative will ask you to call out the recipient’s phone number.
- The airtime will be debited from your account and credited to the recipient’s account.
3. Using Email To Transfer Airtime To Another User
This method is not popular and rarely used. However, it is worth mentioning. If, for some reason, you can use any of the methods to transfer airtime, you can send an email to customer care to assist you in transferring airtime.
Here’s how to use an email to transfer airtime to another user
- Open your email app and compose the message below
- “I want to transfer airtime to another Glo number from my Glo airtime balance” for your message not to be found in Spam.
- Then copy and paste the following in your email message (body) “Hello. I am contacting you to help me transfer N200 to 07050399708 from my Glo SIM card airtime balance, and my number is 08055235406*. Please, it is urgent!”
Shortly, any active Glo customer care will attend to your message. He/she will let you know whether your request has been received proper action or not.
4. Using Glo Mobile App To Transfer Airtime

After installation, launch the app and sign in with your Glo phone number. If you’re just using the app for the first time, you’ll be sent an OTP for verification purposes. Once verified, you can use the Glo mobile app to send airtime to another user.
