After a fraction of seconds, your menu will appear from which you can choose features like sharing talk time or Buying happy hour packs, Taking Loan/Asking for talk time etc. Simply answer with the number representing the choice that you need to go for and the further process would be able to be executed afterwards. Suppose option 1 reads share talk time, enter “1” into the answer field and then click the “Send” button.
4. Enter the Amount to be shared:-
In order to transfer balance to the other mobile, you would be needed to enter the amount you want to transfer and the talk time amount that you enter will be shared with the other number. You can share a minimum of rupees five and a maximum of rupees forty and in order to send balance you should have a minimum balance of rupees ten in your balance.
5. The Further Execution:-
You can make five transactions per day and thirty transactions per month. The charges along with the service tax get displayed when you choose to send a balance amount and then you are required to enter the receiver’s mobile number say 9989*****9 and then click the send button.
