United Bank For Africa (UBA) is on the most powerful and oldest banks in Nigeria. The bank provides a variety of services and also uses modern technologies and innovation when it comes to customer service and bank operations. Since the UBA bank is a very reliable bank, it is no surprise that more and more people are choosing to be its customers. Now the bank is working on the development of Mobile Banking and Mobile platform to satisfy customers’ needs. Let’s take a look at how to recharge from UBA account and what the easiest way is.
These days, all banks in Nigeria try to provide faster and more convenient ways to recharge your phone or pay bills. The UBA bank now offers two options for recharging their airtime from UBA account. You can do it either by using USSD code or through the special UBA mobile application. In both cases, you need to have your phone number linked to the UBA bank card. Although, when you use the USSD code, there is also an option to recharge from the number while having it linked to another bank account. Let’s look at these two different ways.
The mobile banking to recharge from UBA account
To make it easier for a customer to recharge airtime, the UBA bank came up with a special dialing code. The code *919# is available for usage 24/7 and does not require Internet connection. It works on every mobile phone and is very convenient to use. With this code, you will not only be able to recharge airtime but can also submit or update BVN number and transfer your funds to other UBA bank accounts. If you haven’t linked your BVN number to the account, you can do so by dialing *919*6#.
