Subscribers can quickly transfer their data in megabytes and gigabytes using just one simple USSD code with the 9mobile Data Share feature. This service, unlike Glo, is not data gifting or data renewal. This one is primarily for those who have active data plans on their 9mobile SIM and desire to share them with their friends or families.
This article will teach you how to transfer data on 9mobile using USSD and other methods you can use to transfer data.
Guide on How To Transfer Data On 9mobile
There are several ways to transfer data on 9mobile. They have two ways of transferring data. They have the “9mobile data transfer” option. This option allows you to transfer 200MB to a person at once, with a daily limit of 1000MB. This implies that if you want to transfer 1GB to a friend, you’d have to transfer 200MB five times to complete the 1GB.
9mobile also has the “9mobile multi-divide data plan” option. This data sharing option on 9mobile allows you to share your data across four 9mobile sim cards, including yours, totaling five in number.
This option is not like the first data-sharing option. This option allows users to access a single data subscription across multiple sim cards.
Here’s how to activate the 9mobile data transfer option.
1. 9mobile Data Transfer
You can transfer data to another 9mobile user using this feature. You must simply dial *229*pin*volume of data*recepient’s number# (*229*0000*200*08090399708#).
However, this option only allows you to transfer 200MB per transfer. You also have a daily limit of transferring 1000MB. So if you want to transfer 1000MB to someone, you’d have to transfer 200MB five times.
2. 9mobile Multi-divide Data Plan
This option allows you to share a single data subscription across four 9mobile sim cards. It allows you to share your data with your friend and family. Unlike data transfer, this allows the person you share your data with to access the same amount of data the owner has.
To activate this option, all you have to do is dial *215*pin*1*new number*new PUK#. Please note that you’ll change the number “1” with “2” when adding another number. Your PUK number is usually at the back of your sim pack.
