Frequently Asked Questions on MTN Data Plans
I have selected some of the frequently asked questions about MTN data bundles and their answers. See them below
I just received a pop-up menu to choose either One-off or Recurrent option after activating a data bundle. What does this mean?
The Pop-up menu is a new feature that allows you to set your data bundle on One-off or Recurrent purchase:
- One-Off Purchase means that your data bundle will not renew after expiry.
- Recurrent Purchas means your data bundle will auto-renew after expiry.
If I exit the Pop-Up Menu or it times out before selecting an option, will my data bundle be on One-off or Recurrent option?
A. If you exit the Pop-Up Menu or it times out before selecting an option, your data bundle will be on One-off purchase. This means that your data bundle will not auto-renew upon expiry.
If my data bundle is on One-off option, will I be able to opt in for Recurrent option or renew the bundle?
Yes, you will be able to opt in for Recurrent option or renew the bundle by sending R+bundle code to 131.
Example: If you have an active 50MB daily bundle that is on One-off option, you will be able to renew it by sending R104 to 131.
See all Recurrent commands in the table below.
Will I be able to cancel auto-renewal anytime?
Yes, you will be able to cancel auto-renewal on your bundle anytime by sending the opt-out keyword to 131.
Can I purchase multiple MTN Data bundles?
Yes, you can activate multiple data bundles and all the data bundle purchased will have its own unique expiry dates.
If I have multiple data bundles active, which bundle will deplete first?
If you have multiple data bundles active, the data bundle with the least validity will be used first.
Example: If you have a 30-day bundle plan and 1day plan active, the 1 day plan will be used first before the 30-day plan.
What happens if I exhaust my data bundle before the renewal date?
As soon as you exhaust your data bundle before the expiry, your data access will be suspended and you will not be able to browse again. To continue browsing, you will need to do one of the following:
- Buy another data plan by dialing *131*1#,
- Borrow data by dialing *606#
- Opt-in for a Pay As You Go browsing by dialing *131*200# to continue browsing from your airtime @N3/MB
Will I be able to rollover my unused data bundle?
Yes, you will be able to roll over any unused data bundle as long as you buy another bundle before the current bundle expires.
Will I be able to rollover my unused data bonus?
No, you will not be able to roll over any unused data bonus even if the bundle auto-renews before or upon expiry.
Is there data bonus on any of the MTN data plans?
Yes you can enjoy data bonuses on selected MTN data bundles. However, you can only use the data bonus between 1am and 7am daily, but the main data bundle can be used any time of the day.
Also note that the bonus will have same validity as the main data bundle
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 active 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 it is exhausted 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.
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. I.e. All bundles will renew according to their bundle category – daily, weekly and monthly.
Example: if you activate two data plans from the daily plans; (50MB on Oct 1, 150MB on Oct 5), two plans from the weekly plan; (500MB on Oct 3 and 1GB on Oct 4), on the day of renewal, only 150MB from the daily plan and 1GB 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.
I have 1GB bonus data plan active and then activated 1.5GB Monthly Data plan, which of them will be used first?
The 1GB data plan will be used first, and after the data bundle has been exhausted , the data charges will be deducted from the new 1.5GB Monthly plan.
