There are times when you are out of airtime, and there is no way you can recharge right immediately. This is why you should learn how to borrow MB from Etisalat (9mobile) or any other mobile services, for that matter. In this article, we will tell you how to borrow credit from Etisalat (9mobile), including the terms you should be aware of, and the code for borrowing credit.
How to borrow airtime from Etisalat (9mobile)
If you want to know how to borrow money from Etisalat (9mobile), you should know about their special offer called morecredit. With this 9mobile (Etisalat) borrow credit feature, you can borrow some airtime to spend on data, voice and other services and repay this loan when you recharge next time.
Morecredit is available to prepaid customers regardless of their tariff plan. It works the same way as regular airtime does, so, now we can tell you how to borrow data from Etisalat (9mobile).
Now, you cannot borrow just any amount. 9mobile can lend you ₦50, 100, 200, 500, 1000, 1, 1500 or 2,600. Moreover, you will not receive the exact amount you borrow, as there is a service fee of 15%. So if you borrow, for example, ₦500, you will receive ₦425.
When it comes to paying back what you have borrowed, 9mobile seems pretty lenient. It does not say and how long you have to repay the credit, only that the amount you borrowed would be deducted from your airtime balance the next time you recharge your line.
You can do it any way you like: with a recharge voucher, e-top up or even with airtime transferred from other 9mobile customers.

While telling you how to borrow credit from Etisalat (9mobile), we have not mentioned the most essential thing, and that is the code you need to use if you want to borrow credit. As the credit is not borrowed automatically when you run out of airtime, you will have to order it yourself. So let’s talk about that.
Before you even get to borrowing credit from 9mobile, you need to find out whether you are eligible for this feature in the first place. To do so, use the code *665*3# or text the word STATUS to the short number 665.
If you are eligible, you can borrow credit by executing a USSD command *665*amount# or send a text to 665 that says ‘amount’. By ‘amount’, we mean how much you want to borrow. So, for instance, if you want to borrow ₦100, use the code *665*100# or send 100 to 665.
As you can see, there is nothing complicated about borrowing credit from Etisalat (9mobile). You just need to use the code we have mentioned and then use the airtime the way you would use your regular airtime. And when you have the money for the recharge, you can pay back the money you owe. Simple!
