How To Borrow Data On MTN, 9mobile, Glo And Airtel

There are times you would want to do something important online but due to some reasons, you couldn’t recharge your line to enable you purchase some data bundle; this is why I am making this post.

Just like borrowing airtime, you can as well borrow data from your various network provider. Some charge a small percentage for service charge while some don’t.

In this post, I am going to show you how to borrow data from your various network providers such like MTN, 9mobile, Glo and Airtel. Without typing much, let’s get down to the main topic.

You must be on the network for at least 3 months to be eligible for borrowing data.

How To Borrow Data On MTN

To borrow data on MTN is very simple. All you have to do is dial *606# and select the Xtrabyte option. It’ll bring out a list of data volumes you can borrow and the price for each of them.

The more you are active on the network, the more data volume you will be eligible to borrow.

When next you recharge, the owed amount will be deducted automatically.

How To Borrow Data On Airtel

Borrowing data on Airtel network will attract a small percentage service charge (15%). It will be deducted from the amount of airtime you borrowed. That is, if you request for N200 credit, your phone will be credited with N170 while N30 goes to Airtel as service charge.

To borrow data from Airtel Nigeria, kindly dial *500# and choose option 3 to Borrow Data. Choose the amount of data you want from the option.

How To Borrow Data On 9mobile

9mobile doesn’t allow subscribers to borrow data yet. You can only borrow airtime and use the borrowed airtime to purchase data. This is because, borrowed airtime on 9mobile always reflects as your main balance.

To check if you’re eligible to borrow airtime on 9mobile, please dial *665*3# or sms Status to 665.

To borrow airtime on 9mobile, please dial *665*amount#.

Available amounts to borrow are: N50, N100, N200, N500, N1000, N1,150 and N2600

Please note that a service charge of 15% will be deducted from your borrowed airtime.

How To Borrow Data On Glo

Glo Borrow Me Data has been available for years now. It allows Glo subscribers to borrow data while they pay back later.

To borrow data on Glo, kindly dial *321# and follow the on -screen options.


You will payback the borrowed data whenever you make a recharge. In addition, Glo also made official 3 other existing offers which i will paraphrase below:

Double Free Tomorrow: This offer gives back to the subscriber 200% of whatever is spent on calls, SMS or data today to use for free the next day. In the re-loaded offer, Globacom calculates all the value of airtime a subscriber used in a day for internet services, phone calls and SMS, and credits the subscriber’s phone with double this value at the start of the next day.

In other words, when you spend more today, you get much more tomorrow.  For instance, if a subscriber on the Glo network uses N500 credit in a day on calls, SMS and data, Glo will give back N1,000 credit to the subscriber the very next day to call all networks, SMS and browse for free,


If you are interested in this offer, you are to dial *300#.

Gbam Plus 11k per second: It’s as a simple flat tariff plan which allows customers enjoy heavily reduced call rate on local and international calls.
Under the plan, calls are charged at 11k/s to all local networks and for international calls to 30 top destinations.


You are to dial *211# to migrate to the plan. Daily access fee of N5.00

New IDD Packs: The IDD pack covers calls made from Nigeria to 30 major international destinations for as low as N6.60 per minute. The IDD 100 gives the subscriber 12 minutes of call valid for 3 days, while IDD 200 gives 24 call minutes for 7 days. The IDD 500 bundle gives 60 minutes of call for 14 days, while the fourth bundle, IDD 1000, will avail the user 150 call minutes valid for 30 days.
