Why do Visafone mobiles need airtime?

Prepaid mobile phones on the Visafone network need airtime, also known as ‘credit’ or ‘talk-time’. Without airtime, the mobile phone can’t be used to make calls, send texts or use data. Topping-up the airtime allows these services to be used once again. Once the airtime has been transferred to a Visafone Nigeria mobile, it cannot be transferred back into cash or used for any other purpose.

What is Visafone?

Visafone Communications is one of the leading mobile phone networks in Nigeria. It was recently bought by MTN, another network we can help you send airtime to. However, Visafone continues to operate just as before and provides mobile services to millions of people in Nigeria.

How to send airtime to a Visafone mobile

The process is extremely simple. All you need is the number of the mobile you want to send the airtime to. Then, using the box on the right-hand side of this screen, simply select the country the mobile user is in, choose the service, which in this case will be ‘Airtime’, then enter the phone number and select the top-up amount. Both you and the recipient will receive an SMS notification to inform you that the top-up has been made.

The Visafone airtime top-up will be completed immediately, although there may occasionally be small delays if there is congestion on the local Visafone Nigeria network.
