Mr A
FirstBank now allows customers to buy airtime or recharge their lines the easiest way possible.

Before now, I already taught you how to buy airtime from Quickteller using your ATM card, as well as how to buy airtime from your bank's online portal, but nothing can beat buying airtime just by dialing a code on your phone. Now you can eliminate the hassle of walking down to a shop, scratching off the protective film, and squinting like a myopic patient as you carefully type in the digits from a rumpled voucher.

Are You Eligible To Buy Airtime From FirstBank?

To be eligible to use this service, your number must be tied to your firstbank account. That is, you can only buy credit from the line with which you receive FirstBank alerts.

This means that if your FirstBank number is an MTN line, you will only be able to buy MTN airtime. If it's an Etisalat line, you will be able to recharge that line only. Same thing for Airtel and Glo.

If you have a FirstBank account and do not receive SMS alerts for withdrawals and deposits, visit a FirstBank branch to register your number for the SMS alert service.

FirstBank Airtime Recharge Code

To buy credit instantly from your FirstBank account, simply dial *894*Amount# from your line. E.g If I need to recharge my sim with 500, all I need to do is dial *894*500# and my phone is instantly recharged with N500.
The cash will be taken directly from your bank account. No extra charges.

Are There Any Recharge Limits?

Minimum: Yes. The minimum amount you can recharge at one time is N50. This means that you cannot recharge N30 or N45.
Maximum: Yes. The maximum amount you can recharge "in one day" is N3000. This means that when you have recharged up to N3000 in one day, you would have to wait for the next day to continue recharging.

That is also a very welcomed development. They texted me of that a couple of days back. I aslo operate with First Bank plc, so glad I do not need any ATM or data to process online recharge. It's what I can do within a couple of seconds sitting in my room.
That's very good,this is a very good way of recharging without stress
The queue is what annoys most of the time when one wants to recharge or withdraw some certain amount of cash in a bank, but this newly introduced development would make it more easier to recharge our phones by dialing some USSD codes. #Nice Development
No more queuing up man!

But How @ Sirphil
You cannot convert your airtime to real money, you can only take cash, cheque or money transfer into your account.
@sir-phil I have never think of something similar to this, would be introduced in the future. Will they benefit from us if we buy recharge cards and decided to convert it to real money?
How mucg recharge cards do you buy? Isn't it easier if you just let the money in your account? Who would buy N5000 recharge card just to save it in his account? I dont even think they will ever come up with something of sort.
That is true. These people are too smart
But I read from someone on the net that they can help people convert airtime to cash in the bank account, with charges. I think l saved it on my offline page; what of that?
Or are they 419 ?

Mr Paul, this is fraudelent and it is ubelievable. All i know is that they are trying to hoax people into believing that they can do it for them after all they can't. And if it is truth, we will have been informed since.
But I learnt that some children of the devil, who deceive people that they have won prices on their calling lines and thereby collecting recharge cards from people; after they have collected those cards ( 'cos l believe they collect from many people, what are they using it for ?
are they not converting it to money or cash? l thought in my heart like that one day.

I think those people are converting it to cash; if not, they will not be deceiving many people to collect recharge voucher from them.
