Are you running low on airtime on your telecom service provider? Don’t worry – you can easily borrow airtime to make the call.
Borrowing airtime is a great way to stay connected without having to top up your phone. Most mobile phone operators offer this service, so you don’t have to worry about running out of airtime.
In this article, we’ll take a look at how to borrow airtime on telkom. I’ll cover the different types of airtime borrowing services, how to activate them, and the different airtime repayment options available. Let’s get started.
Types of Airtime Borrowing Services
Most telecom service providers offer two types of airtime borrowing services. The first is a prepaid service, which allows you to borrow a predetermined amount of airtime and then repay it at a later date. The second is a postpaid service, which enables you to borrow airtime and pay for it at the end of the month.
How to Activate Airtime Borrowing Service
Activating an airtime borrowing service is usually a very straightforward process.
You can usually do this by simply dialing a code or sending a text message. For example, if you’re using a prepaid service, you may have to dial a code such as 120# or 122#. If you’re using a postpaid service, you may have to send a text message such as “credit” to a specific number.
How to borrow airtime from Telkom
On your Telkom line, simply dial *133# and follow the prompt. Example: when you request for PEWA 100, this means that you will receive the requested credit advance less 10%.
Subscribing to PEWA 100 and you will receive ksh 95 credited to your main account. 10% is immediately deducted from ksh 100.
Airtime Repayment Options
Once you’ve borrowed airtime, you’ll need to repay it. Depending on the type of airtime borrowing service you’re using, the repayment options may vary. For prepaid services, you’ll usually be able to repay the airtime in full or in instalments. For postpaid services, you’ll usually be able to pay for the airtime at the end of the month.
