Things are tough and most of us have been in a situation where you run out of airtime when you most need it. With mobile network operators, including Econet, charging $0.48 per minute for calls its a situation you are most likely to find yourself in more often than not.
When that happens Econet allows you to borrow airtime. The official way they advertise is to use *179# and follow the USSD prompts to borrow airtime. Unfortunately, at the time we wrote this article, the prompt only allows you to borrow less than $1. That’s a meagre 2 minutes of calls.
How to borrow up to $10?
To borrow more than $1 and up to $10 you need to go through the following steps:
- Download and install the Yomix App if you don’t have it already. Unlike in the past, there are no age restrictions
- Launch the app and log in by selecting the Yomix verification Code to log in.
- Once you have logged in tap on the bottom menu
- You will be presented with various amounts you can borrow from $1-$10
That’s it you are done.
