How to Transfer & Share Data from AIRTEL to AIRTEL

Data Plans have been known to be used by a user-per-phone,  but the narrative has changed in recent times as Network Service Providers came up with the idea of sharing and transferring data between multiple users.


That implies, that a data plan that is subscribed to by you can also be used by your friends & families, without breaking the bank and having access to the internet regularly.


AIRTEL, chief among the telecoms company in Nigeria is not to be left out of the conversation when it comes to ideas that will improve customer satisfaction. They have a simple process for it & it can be done via USSD.




To transfer data from your line to another, follow the steps outlined;


  • Ensure you have an active data plan
  • Dial *141#
  • Select 6 – Gifting & Sharing
  • Select 4 – Data Me2U
  • Select 2 – Send Me2U from Existing Allowance
  • Enter Recipient’s Number
  • Enter Data Allowance
  • Enter PIN
  • Send


At a time, the maximum amount of data that can be transferred is 200MB, and the maximum number of users that can be transferred to is limited to 2 per Day




Data Sharing & Transfer are two different acts in all entirety. However, sharing of data which is also known as AIRTEL Smartshare or AIRTEL Data Me2U is done by;


  • Send SHARE TO 121
  • Wait for a message which will enable you to add numbers to share data with
  • Send “ADD RECIPIENT’s NUMBER” to 121 e.g ADD O123456789 to 121
  • You will receive a message, press 1 to confirm
