TIP: How to transfer Econet Airtime

A number of people have asked us how to transfer their Econet airtime to another number.

Many have said that a method they used to rely on (sending a message to 31117) doesn’t work anymore. Other have complained that they are asked for a pin when they use the new method *111#.

For the sake of simplicity, we show here how to easily transfer airtime if you’re an Econet subscriber.

First, you are required to create what Econet calls a Self Care account before you’re able to start transferring airtime.

These are the steps to create the account:

  1. Dial *111#
  2. Select Option 1: My Account
  3. Follow prompts to create a 4-digit pin. You will need that pin whenever you are transferring airtime.

These are the steps to transfer the airtime:

  2. You will see the menu below. Select option 3. Transfer Airtime
  3. You will now be asked for that pin you chose above. Enter it
