solution of jamb profile code issue insufficient balance. IN error code 4012.

on this issue, there is actually two problems here.

the first one is insufficient balance while the other one is error code 4012.

to solve the issue of insufficient balance, make sure you have at least 100 naira airtime on your account balance.

IMPORTANT THINGS TO NOTE regarding the issues of error code is 4012

you can not receive your profile code using any bonus airtime Ballance.

when using MTN Sim, load the airtime with *555*, do not recharge with *888* or any other bonus code, definitely, it will not work.

another, make sure you are not owing MTN any airtime.

when using Airtel, make sure you recharge your sim with normal code which is *126*, do not try any bonus code is you are really recharging to get your profile code.

for people using other services like Glo or 9mobile, use the required code, do not load your airtime with any bonus code because definitely, it will not work.

you may have more than 1k airtime in your sim but due to the fact that they don’t make use of bonus airtime, they will still reply you with low balance or insufficient balance.


another Important note: make sure that you are sending the massage with the real Sim card which you are suppose to Use.

if you have two sim card in your phone, you may remove the second sim card or check your setting to confirm the sim that can send massage in your phone. ( I recommend you remove the second sim card if you can’t change it on your setting ) probably, this will solve your issue of low balance or insufficient balance, the only thing remaining if error code 4012.
