What happens if I exhaust my data bundle before the renewal date?

  • Buy another data plan by dialing *131*1# or *904#.
  • Borrow data by dialing *606#.
  • Opt-in for Pay-As-You-Go browsing by dialling *131*200# to continue browsing with your airtime at N3/MB.

On which bundle will I be able to enjoy night data bonus?

You will be able to enjoy night data bonus only on the 500MB +250MB Bonus Weekly  plan. However, you can only use the 250MB data bonus between 1am and 7am daily, but the 500MB main data bundle will be used at any time of the day.

Also note that the bonus will have the same validity with the main data bundle BUT all unused bonus will be cleared after expiry.


Will I enjoy other data bonus offers when I activate a data bundle?

Yes, you will be able to enjoy 25% LTE bonus, 50% and 100% bonus offer on the main data when you activate a new device on the network.


Will I still get bonus if I activate a data bundle with bonus?

No, you will ONLY enjoy the 100% on the main data bundle and the data bonus will be credited into the data bonus account.


Example: If you are currently enjoying the 100% device offer and activate 500MB +250MB Bonus (1am – 7am) weekly bundle, you will receive additional 500MB in your device bonus account.


Will I be able to rollover my unused main data bundle?

Yes, you will be able to roll over any unused main data bundle as long as you buy another bundle before the current bundle expires or within the allowed grace period after the bundle expires BUT you will NOT be able rollover any unused data bonus.

Data PlanApplicable Rollover Period
One (1) DayOne (1)
Above 1 Day but less than 30daysThree (3) Days
Thirty (30) Days and aboveSeven (7) days

 


I have 1GB remaining from my expired 6.5GB Monthly data bundle. Will I be able to rollover the remaining 1GB when I buy a daily bundle? 

Yes, you can rollover your unused 1GB bundle when you activate any data bundle from daily, weekly OR monthly plans. However the validity of the new data bundle activated will be applied to the unused bundle.

Example 

If you have an unused 250MB upon expiration of 1.5GB Monthly plan, and you now activated 75MB daily bundle, the 250MB will be rolled over to the daily bundle and all the bundle (250MB+75MB) will be valid for 1day.


What will happen if I do not renew my expired bundle or purchase another bundle of the same category after the rollover period?

If you fail to renew your expired bundle or purchase another bundle of the same category after the rollover period, all your unused bundle will be cleared.


I have 1GB left after my bundle expired. Will I be able to use it within the grace period?

No, you will NOT be able to use it within the grace period until you renew the bundle or purchase another data plan.


Will I be able to rollover my unused data bonus?  

No, you will NOT be able to rollover any unused data bonus even if the bundle auto-renews before expiry, upon expiry or within the applicable rollover period.

Example: if you activate the 500MB weekly plan + 250MB Bonus and on the day of expiry you have 200MB remaining in your data main account and 100MB in your bonus account. After renewal, the remaining 200MB data bundle will be rolled over to the new data, while the unused 100MB bonus will be cleared.


If I activate the same data bundle with bonus multiple times, will I be able to use the bonus of the first bundle I activated?

Yes, if you activate the same data bundle with bonus multiple times, you will be able to use the data bonus of the first bundle until the last day of its expiry or exhaustion, after which your data activities will be charged from the next data bonus. But, on the day of renewal only the last bundle activated will be auto renewed.

Example:If you activate 500MB Weekly plan + 250MB Bonus on June 23rd and activate the same data plan on June 25th, you will be able to use the data bonus of the bundle activated on June 23rd  until it is exhausted or last day of its expiry.


If I have multiple data bundles active, which bundle will auto-renew first? 

If you have multiple data bundles active from the various plans, the last bundle purchased from that plan will be the bundle that will be auto-renewed; that is, all bundles will renew according to their bundle category – daily, weekly and monthly.

Example: if you activate two data plans from the daily plans; (75MB on Oct 1, 150MB + 75MB on Oct 5), two plans from the weekly plan; (500MB +250MB Bonus (1am-7am) on Oct 3 and 350MB on Oct 4), on the day of renewal, only 150MB +75MB from the daily plan and 350MB from the weekly plan will be the plans to auto-renew.


Will I be able to browse from my airtime automatically after exhausting my data bundle?

You will be able to browse from your airtime after exhausting your data bundle BUT you will be required to opt in before you can browse from your airtime at Pay As You Go rate.


Can I share my MTN Data Bundle?

No, you will not be able to share your data bundle.


I have 2GB Monthly data plan active and then activated 1.5GB Monthly data plan, which of them will deplete first? 

The 2GB data plan will be used first and after the data bundle has been exhausted then data charges will be deducted from the new 1.5GB Monthly plan.
