How can I change the Airtel default transaction pin? 

Before you become eligible to use the airtel transfer pin to send data to another airtel SIM user, you must change the default transfer pin.  

  • To change the Airtel default transfer pin, follow the procedure below:  
  • Launch the Call App.  
  • Dial the USSD code for an AIRTEL-to-AIRTEL transfer using an active AIRTEL SIM card: *141*6#
  • Select the option that says, “Change the default pin,” which is 1234
  • Enter your preferred transfer pin, e.g., 4444
  • Confirm your transfer pin by typing again 4444
  • A notification that will be sent to you confirms that your transfer pin has been changed successfully. 


You can also transfer data to AIRTEL via SMS. I know most people don’t know they can transfer 1 GB to another Airtel SIM card via SMS. 

  • Launch your messaging app. 
  • Type “share.” 
  • Follow the instructions to complete the process. The details must be sent via SMS. Just send “SMS ADD” (space) (Airtel mobile number) to 121 and follow the details. 
  • Follow the instruction that appears on the screen (on-screen message) to complete the process. 
  • A confirmation with a detailed message will be sent to you. 
  • After the confirmation, the data bundle will be successfully sent to the Airtel SIM card. 


Step 1: Check your Data Balance. Before you initiate the data transfer process, make sure that you have sufficient data balance in your account. You can check your data balance by dialing *121# and following the instructions on the screen. You can also check your data balance via the Airtel app or website. 

Step 2: Dial *141# Once you have confirmed that you have enough data balance, dial *141# from your Airtel number. This will take you to the Airtel USSD menu, where you can access various Airtel services, including data transfer. 

Step 3: Select Share TalkTime and Data from the USSD menu, select the “Share TalkTime and Data” option. This will take you to the data transfer section. 

Step 4: Select Share Data Next, select the “Share Data” option from the data transfer section. This will prompt you to enter the Airtel number that you want to transfer data to. 

Step 5: Enter the Recipient’s Number Enter the Airtel number of the person you want to share your data balance with. Make sure to double-check the number before proceeding. 

Step 6: Enter Data Amount After entering the recipient’s Airtel number, you will be prompted to enter the amount of data you want to transfer. In this case, enter 1GB. 

Step 7: Confirm the Transaction Once you have entered the data amount, you will be asked to confirm the transaction. Verify that all the details you have entered are correct, and then confirm the transaction. 

Step 8: Data Transfer Confirmation Once the transaction is completed, you will receive a confirmation message from Airtel indicating that the data has been successfully transferred to the recipient’s number. 


The 1GB of data transfer from Airtel to Airtel is one of the services that every Airtel subscriber can enjoy. 

It is important to note that you can transfer the 1GB bit by bit. Not all at once. You can follow any method in this article that suits you to transfer 1GB of data from Airtel to Airtel.
