Monday 21 December 2020 | 11:04 CET | News
Nigerian operator 9mobile has started an intelligent portal for instant verification so its customers can link their SIM cards with their National Identification Number (NIN). The Online Self-Service NIN update portal www.9mobile.com.ng/nin has already gone live on the 9mobile website. It enables subscribers to submit and verify their NIN without physically visiting any Experience Centre.

Yours is the most unserious network in linking NIN to SIM. It is really Pathetic. I am considering dropping the use of Etisalat lines . Other network link to NIN is very simple but not yours . Am so so disappointed.

Please and please stop sharing your NIN in a public domain. It is your identity. I posted earlier that: To check your NIN dial *346# on the number you used during National ID registration. Then it would be sent to your phone. To link ur 9mobile is very simple. Just dial *200*8# and enter your NIN. For MTN, dial *785#, For glo Text UPDATE NIN, UR NIN NUMBER, UR FULL NAME AS IT APPEARED ON UR ID and send to 109. For help text only to 09080560927. AGAIN: STOP sharing your nin in a public domain. It is your identity. TOBEST STUDIOS CARES FOR YOU

i want to link my line with sim for 9mobile but it has been difficult. what is wrong with your network or your company.

9mobile is not serious on the issue of nin number that is why they did not make any provission.
Abubakar Sani @ 17/1/2021 - 08:33

I tried several time link you nin number to my 9mobile line which is 08099661895, when I captured the camera it will tell me image captured successfully but I press the next button it will say capture face, this is really frustrating.i got a text this morning from 9mobile telling me my nin is not valid which I find it difficult to believe because that is the Nin number on National ID and has been linked to my other network, so please what is the problem?
