Airtel Me2U is a service that enables an Airtel subscriber to show love to another Airtel subscriber by transfering a portion of their credit to the other person. This means that as a subscriber, you can recharge a card and share it your family members, friends or even colleagues as far as they are on the network. Each subscriber can do a transfer of not more than N5000 per day.

Every active line is enabled to be able to enjoy the service, you only need to change the default PIN that came with line to a personal and more secured PIN that you can remember easily but difficult for anyone to guess. I do recommend that you change the default PIN. The default PIN is 1234.
