How to Borrow Airtime from MTN, Glo, Etisalat and Airtel Nigeria Mobile Networks.
Most of us have at one point in time stranded of airtime (have a zero credit balance). You might have money to purchase the airtime, but maybe nobody sell in your current location. It might also be because it is too late to go out and you need to make that important/urgent call. It for this reason that all Nigeria telecommunication companies (MTN, Glo, Airtel and Etisalat) launch a platform that allow you borrow airtime pending the time you were able to purchase a recharge card.
