If you are a regular MTN subscriber, you should have noticed an increase in the prices of some data plans, as this change appears to have affected more popular data plans, such as the ‘2.5GB – 2-day data plan.’
MTN is known for having numerous data offers, one of which allows customers to get 450MB for as little as N50 and 1.5GB for as much as N200. This offer is superior to the Welcome Back plans, but as is customary with MTN offers, eligibility requirements apply. This offer is no exception. In this article, I’ll guide you on how to activate this cheap data plan and how to find out if you are eligible or not.
Steps on how to activate 450MB for N50, 1.5GB for N200 on MTN
Don’t make a recharge on your SIM yet. Dial any of these codes:
- ∗131∗87#: 450MB for N150
- ∗131∗88#: 1.5GB for N200
Reply with 1 to make a ‘One-off Purchase’ on that plan. If your SIM is eligible to purchase the plan, you will get a message saying, “insufficient balance…” If the reverse is the case and your SIM is ineligible to purchase the data plan, you will get a message that reads, “you’re not eligible for this offer…“
You would know what to do if you received any of these messages. If you are not eligible, you can still take advantage of other MTN network special offers.
