  1. Hi FNB. why Is it so difficult to access the ewallet without airtime? One needs to have airtime its really ridiculous, the money is there but I can’t use it or access it without buying airtime from the ewallet first. So one can’t send it to someone who have already used all their resources and advance airtime is not sufficient to generate another pin. Please fix this and make it available for everyone to access
