Remembering Me2U @ this season

Market Intelligence:

In a season like e del Fitri, Christmas and New Year, some products and services come handy in terms of sharing the joy of the season and that is why it is relevant to remember the like of ‘Me2U’ introduced by one of the Global System for Mobile communication (GSM), Celtel Nigeria.

According to the telco Me2U is airtime transfer service that is designed to enable subscribers share airtime also known as credit or top-up on their Celtel lines with their friends and families, also on Celtel lines as frequently as they desire to do so, irrespective of location and time.

Celtel officials stated that some of Me2U benefits include a 24-hour availability, which means that airtime could be sent anytime of the night or during the day

In addition, Celtel explained that subscribers could top up on behalf of family members or friends.

Subscribers could transfer airtime on this platform by sending a text message to 432. This, of course, would be after entering ‘2u [space] [space] [space] .”

For instance, to transfer N50 worth of airtime to subscriber 08021234567, the text sent would read, thus: 2u 08021234567 50 1234, that is where the Personal Identification Number (PIN) is 1234.

The second step involves the sender receiving a Short Messaging Service (SMS) to confirm receipt from 432, which reads; “You have just sent N50 to 08021234567.”

While the third step is that the person receiving the transfer would also receive an SMS confirmation from 432 that will read:

“You have just received N50 from 08020000000.”
