This is the most common way to recharge Glo airtime. Glo recharge cards are usually in the form of a scratch card pin or a paper with a 15-digit code, which you can buy from a Glo recharge card vendor. They are also commonly called Glo cards.

  2. Scratch gently to reveal the hidden 15-digit code
  3. Dial *123*PIN# e.g. *123*12345 6789 10112#
  4. Your Glo line will be credited to the recharge card value. You also receive an instant message confirming that your Glo line has been credited
