Why Credit Share is useful

The credit share facility is actually very useful. However, it doesn’t appear to be widespread, save in Africa. There, people routinely share airtime with friends and family. We have previously shown how it’s done for Cell C in South Africa and for Airtel in Nigeria. Within the developed world, Malaysia is an exception. There are times when you are stranded and you don’t have airtime. What do you do in that case? Well, you can simply request for airtime from those closest to you using the steps outlined in the article in the provided link.

When your friends receive your request, they will then send you the required airtime. However, you may need to use this facility sparingly, or at least spread it among your friends. If you are the only one that requests airtime all the time, you could soon exhaust their patience. Anyway, that’s all beside the point. The fact that there is the Celcom airtime transfer facility at all is indicative of the kind of warmth that we have as Malaysians.
