That is if your etisalat sim is registered with your bank account for alert, and you have an ATM card.

You just need to dial the network provider airtime transfer code, put in the amount you want to transfer, put in the receiver’s number when asked to, and put in your 5 digit mobile banking transfer pin.

    Wrong impression with regards to resetting your pin when you forget it. i called 200 and we asked to give the puk number and some other information you least expect and was not readily available. Even with you bank account, you don’t get such interrogations.
