If you are one of Globacom Limited’s (widely known as Glo) more than 50 million customers and want to learn how to load a recharge voucher and subscribe to a particular data package in Nigeria, we have you covered.
How to Recharge a Glo Card
Use the code *123*Recharge Digit# to recharge your Glo card in Nigeria. Once you’ve dialed the number, you’ll have to wait for a message. Once it’s successful, it’ll say so, and you’ll get a confirmation text.
PINs for Globacom cards are normally 15 digits long. The PIN can be found on the recharge card. Some recharge cards may require scratching; look at the back of the card for scratching areas and scratch gently and carefully.
It’s not a good idea to scratch a card if it is wet, you may scrape off a number, which you will need to contact Glo customer service by dialing 121 to retrieve it; you can also access customer service by dialing 08050020121 from any network.
Glo 5X Recharge code
Dial *555*RechargePIN# to obtain five times (500 percent) the value of your recharge.
How to Recharge Glo Line from Your Bank
If you live in a place where recharge cards are hard to come by or are too tired or busy to go to a glocard vendor to buy one, your bank can help.
Many banks have their own unique USSD codes, like the GTB’s *737#, First Bank’s *894#, and United African Bank’s (UBA’s) *919#.
But, if you don’t remember your bank code, phone *805# to get a recharge from your bank. You’ll be given the choice of recharging with your bank account or a voucher. You can select your desired option and/or bank from here.
There are now 13 banks using the *805# platform:
- Access Bank
- Diamond Bank
- Fidelity Bank
- Jaiz Bank
- Heritage Bank
- Keystone Bank
- Skye Bank
- Union Bank
- Unity Bank
- Zenith Bank
How to activate Glo special data plan
Globacom Limited (Glo), which is managed by Nigerian tycoon Mike Adenuga, prides itself on being the grandmaster of data. The telecoms corporation is credited as being the first to offer large amounts of data in exchange for airtime recharged.
In general, dial *777# on your smartphone to view the various data plans provided by Glo. You can also use the bank method or your unique bank code to access the service. When using the bank method, select data instead of airtime.
If your SIM is new, we recommend that you first recharge your phone with airtime before switching to data.
This is because you’re likely to receive a bonus on your recharge, giving you two benefits for the value of one recharge. However, if you no longer qualify for recharge bonuses, you can recharge instantly from your bank without any issues.
Direct Data recharge
Use *223*RechargePIN# for a quick and direct data recharge/subscription. As soon as you recharge, the network credits your data balance with the corresponding amount of your recharge.
