How to get started
Although transferring airtime is as simple as dialing *223*PIN*Amount*Phone Number#, there are certain things you have to do first. Firstly, you have to start by setting your transfer PIN. This is because everybody’s PIN is set to a default number 0000 and for security sake, it has to be changed. Therefore, after that, you can then proceed to use your new pin to carry out the transaction.

How to change your new PIN
Firstly, just like earlier said, you would need your default pin (0000) to set your new pin. Basically, doing this ensures that only you have the password to transfer airtime from your SIM. Here is how to change to your new PIN:
Dial * 247 * 0000 * new PIN #. Putting it in context, assuming you want to set your new pin as 4343, simply dial * 247 * 0000 *4343#. Read on how to borrow airtime from 9Mobile.
