Sharing your mobile phone credit with friends and family members is a feature that has since gained popularity over the years with Safaricom unveiling Sambaza while Airtel calling it Me2U. Telkom as well has a nifty feature that allows subscribers on the network to share or transfer part of their airtime to other numbers. The service which is dubbed PASHA works in a similar way as the other two mobile service providers and customers can easily access using a USSD code.
Some notable limitations though; you can only transfer airtime from a Telkom Kenya number to another Telkom number with a minimum of Ksh.10 and Maximum of Ksh. 3,500. This is expected as is the trend with the other Telco’s as well. There are times when you may urgently need airtime but in an area that’s away from shops or might just not be in a position to purchase for yourself. PASHA comes in handy in such circumstances with a simple trick to share credit.
Of course, you could do a reverse call, but what if the person you want to talk to isn’t in a position to have enough credit as well? In my opinion, you could do a reverse call to someone who can assist with airtime and proceed to make a call to the other party which makes PASHA legible for all Telkom subscribers.
How to share or transfer Telkom airtime with friends and family
- On your phone dial *140#
- Then enter the amount you want to transfer
- On the next screen, enter the beneficiary’s Telkom number
