We’ve been grateful to see some few offers from MTN this year and the offers just keep on coming in as time goes by. It should have come across your mind by now that since you can call someone without having airtime on your Airtel SIM card, then what’s the possibility of not being able to send SMS for free with any of your SIM cards?
This post, however, is not about to show you how to send SMS for free on your MTN, Glo, Airtel or 9mobile SIM cards but only on MTN SIM cards. I want to let you know this is not a hidden trick as it is an official feature from the network operator, MTN.
I should let you know that there are disadvantages for just being able to send SMS for free on your MTN SIM card, like for instance, you will have to migrate out of your previous tariff plan meaning that you will lose all the benefits that are attached by being on the previous plan.
But why will you have to migrate out of your tariff plan, you might wonder. Well, the thing is that in order to be able to send SMS for free on your MTN SIM card, you need to migrate to the MTN Biz Class plan by dialing ∗460∗2# on your mobile device to migrate to the plan.
Here comes the second disadvantage, by being on this plan, you cannot subscribe to the normal data plans only the bundles under the Biz Class package. Thankfully, I’ve covered an article on all that you need to know about the MTN Biz Plus plan, it is similar to the MTN Biz Class package and you can learn all that you can from here – MTN Biz Plus – All that you need to know about the MTN Business plan.
After migrating to this new plan, you can now send messages free of charge to any MTN number of your choice. Now here comes the third disadvantage, SMS can only be sent for free to MTN numbers and no other network carrier.
The only advantage of being on this plan is that you get to send free SMS to any MTN number of your choice, there is no advantage asides from that and the worse part might be that you are limited to send a number of messages. You can migrate back to your previous plan, however, but it will cost you N100 to do so within the same month, if you want to spend no money migrating back to your previous tariff plan, you need to wait for at least a month to pass by before you can do so.
