how to activate gtmobile: check bank account balance with mobile phone using gtmobile

i have been using gtmobile on my mobile phone to check my account balance and make payment transactions.gtmobile is mobile application that can enable you to monitor your guarantee trust bank (gtbank) account balance.you can even use it to buy airtime of most Nigerian network operator like GLO, MTN, ETISALAT, AIRTEL etc, pay subscription bills like DSTV,HITV,HITV, and also utility bills like PHCN on your phone without necessarily going to the bank.cool hun.some people were asking me how to activate gtmobile after downloading it.the activation process is not difficult.anyway, today i am going to share with you on how to activate gtmobile.

how to apply and activate  gtmobile

after activating gtmobile, you can be able to check account balance and also pay subscription fees using your mobile phone on the spot.

no need to walk to the banking hall to pay subscription fees like dstv, phch, hitv etc.
with gtmobile app, information on tracking your account statement will be at your finger tips.

===>scroll down to wallet=>card management=>add card.
in the first box==>type your ATMCARD NAME e.g naira master card or any other.in this case i used Nairamastercard,
in the second box=insert the 16 digit card number in front of the ATM CARD,
in the third box==> choose either savings or current as default depending on your account type,
in 4th box==> leave it as YES,
in the 5th box ==>choose the expiring month of the ATM(check your card),

I downloaded the app but formatted my phone. After redownloading, I havnt been able to register my Card. it keeps saying 'this card has already been registered with another wallet', meanwhile, its thesame mobile number.

John Pori on May 18, 2012 at 9:49 PM said...

@mikkarr, you can not activate the card twice since you have already done that.when you format your phone that means the one you have will be removed.so therefore you have to install new one and add the card again.it will tell you that you have already activated it,just go ahead and use it.the message is just to remind you that you have already done it.try to check your balance, you will see the card there.

Mykkarr on May 19, 2012 at 1:53 AM said...

the message is 'this card has already been registered with another wallet'. I tried checking the balance as you said, the sppace for card was empty, i could not perform any operation.

John Pori on May 19, 2012 at 2:26 AM said...

@mykkarr,i updated mine with their latest update last week which has etisalat recharge option.i added the card again and they told me same thing.when i checked to see if the card was added.it was there.just do it again and this time allow it to use sms.

I have same PROBLEM. I have been using Gtmobile since 2010, then on nokai E51. I have changed phone to bb twice and have installed and used the app on each occasion without issues. BUT this time I just got a new bb and can't get app to work. It keeps say msg send failed and I can't register a sms number because its asking for sms code and One time password. I guess they have updated the software. What's the way out please. What do I fill on these fields

John Pori on February 23, 2013 at 2:57 AM said...

try and make use of the phone number you used when you opened the account.also make sure there is credit on your sim.once you send the sms, they will tell you that the card has already been added, then you can go ahead to use it.

sopulu ozoike on March 4, 2013 at 12:20 PM said...

John Pori on March 5, 2013 at 4:36 AM said...

@sopulu, when i tried sending money with gtmobile banking app,it did not work.well, you can try other gtbank application like gtmobile money application which you can download from their website.

Hell there, I have been using gtmobile for many months now without problem. I tried helping a friend get it. After downloading, installing & d card being activated, I tried checkn balance but it keeps giving me a "null" response. Does anybody know what that means?

John Pori on April 9, 2013 at 7:14 AM said...

@anonymous, you just have to keep trying.if it still occurs, then you have to download and try it again.at times it does happens to me like this.i just have to keep trying.

John Pori on April 20, 2013 at 5:39 PM said...
