How to activate or deactivate auto-borrow credit on airtel and glo

Shortly after the credit borrowing service was launched by major telecommunication providers in Nigeria, plans were quickly made to put the whole system of borrowing credit on Auto-pilot to make sure our calls don’t get interrupted when credit get exhausted. It’s a really cool initiative but sometimes we make some calls and don’t really wish to call back if the current call credit gets exhausted. So, if you’ve opt-in for the auto-borrow service on your glo and airtel lines but wish to deactivate it now, here’s how to go about it.


1. To activate / deactivate auto-borrow service on your glo line

  • Dial *321#
  • Reply with 1 for “auto-borrow”
  • Choose the amount you wish to be credited with when your call credit gets low
  • Wait for confirmation SMS from glo network

***Don’t forget you will be charged a transaction fee of 10 naira for every 100

  1. Thanks it worked for me. This is how I did it. To activate, dial *321#send,then 1 for auto-borrow and 2 for borrow, then you choose from nos 1 to 5,for the actual amount you want. Then, to deactivate, I followed all you said to the last letter. Dialed as usual *321#send,then 1 for auto-borrow send and this time 2 to unsubscribe. And a message was sent to me immediately that, you have been deactivated from our auto-borrow service. Thanks and I hope this helps those who couldn't understand.
