MTN NG Share and Sell Transaction Charges Introduced

MTN Nigeria alert its customers about the new development to Share N Sell which will take full effect From Tuesday 31st January 2017, 12.00am, MTN customers will now be charged a nominal fee ???? for using the Share n Sell service allowing customers transfer credit from one MTN line to another.

The details of this change are as found below;

  • All Share N Sell transactions performed by customers will now attract an applicable transfer fee.
  • Customers will still be able to perform share n sell transactions but will pay a transfer fee for the service.
  • The fees vary depending on the value of the transaction.


Q1. Anytime I want to transfer credit or airtime, how much will I be charged?

Q2. Is the transfer fee fixed irrespective of the amount I want to transfer?

  1. The amount of transfer fee charged on share and sell transactions is not fixed but is dependent on the amount of credit or airtime to be transferred at any particular time.

Q3. Before being charged for each Share and sell transaction, will I be informed of the exact transfer fees to be deducted?

  1. Yes, customers will be informed of the exact transfer fee to be deducted anytime they initiate a share n sell transaction. This transfer fee will be deducted only when the customer confirms or accepts to continue with the transaction after being informed of the amount to be deducted as transfer fees.

The table below shows the applicable transfer fee on various transaction bands:

S/N Transaction Amount(?) Applicable Transfer Fee (?)
1 1-100 1
2 101-500 2
3 501-1000 5
4 1001-5000 10
5 >5000 50

MTN Stops Free Migration Between Tariff Plans

If you switch between Tariff plans on MTN a lot, you should know that it USED to be N100 per migration. However, sometime this year, MTN made it free of charge meaning you can switch between Tariff plans as much as you want to suit your needs without having to pay a dime.

Unfortunately, yesterday I migrated from BetaTalk to Pulse and I received the message below:

How to migrate to MTN Beta Talk

What’s so important about switching Tariff plans?
Well, let’s say you have N1,000 and you want to subscribe for MTNs 1k for 1.5GB data plan and you also need to call someone important, what do you do?
If I was in your shoes, what I would do is;
First Migrate to BetaTalk
Load the 1k recharge card When you recharge on BetaTalk you get 250% bonus.
Now I have 1,000 to subscribe and 2,500 to call or text any network.
And when I’m done using the bonus, I just go back to PULSE, talk about eating your cake and having it.

However according to the message I received from MTN NG, you’ll only get one free migration per month, other migration would attract a N100 fee.

MTN Discontinues 7GB For N2000 Plan

It really saddens me to announce that the MTN 7GB for N2000 I announced yesterday have been discontinued 😦 😦 :(.

Turns out it was just a promo for the just concluded TechPlus event held in Lagos. The event lasted from 21st – 23rd of July that was also how long the promo lasted.

So, if you’re planning on subscribing to the 7GB for N2000 Plan, I advice you use your money for something else.

How To Get Up To 11GB Data On MTN

MTN unveil this plan this week at the Africa’s Biggest tech event in Lagos-Nigeria by TechPlus .. Normally, 3.5GB data goes for N2000 ; but this time, MTN at TechPlus applied the multipliers effect that gives you 7GB of data for just N2000. I know you love it when you get big data for lesser amount. This is exactly 100% bonus.

It is a new plan, a new deal for those who think they value the use of data.

Will it Work on My Device? Yes, it will work on all eligible devices including the un- repented Symbian phones.

How To Activate/Subscribe For This Plan

  • Load N2000 on your MTN line
  • Text 2016 to 131 and you’ll receive a message that you have been credited with 7GB on Tech 100% Dealzone.

But do you know what…. You can even get upto 11GB with your N2000… Ask me How?

It’s simple. MTN is currently on weekend promo called WoW Weekend . This is how wow weekend works, when you recharge any amount, you get free data e.g, when you recharge N200, you get free 100MB. When you recharge N500 and above, you get free 1GB.

Load your line with MTN airtime of N2,000 and you’ll get free 2GB usable only from Friday to Sunday. You can then use your N2000 to get 7GB of data making it 11GB.
It is time to choose which network is your best when it comes to data.

Why You No Longer Receive Data Bonus When You Recharge On MTN

I have been on a research about some facts and vital information to solve the issue of not receiving free MB any time I recharge my MTN sim because I was always given free data bonus on every of my recharge either once or more in a week but suddenly it stopped… #gosh

Well I thought it was all my fault that got me such, but due to massive complains from my friends and readers both offline and online, so I went for a research. Here I have some write up about all you need to know!

Do you really know as an MTN customer on the XtraSpecial, XtraPro, BetaTalk, Trutalk, etc tariff plans, you may have recently noticed that you no longer get your regular bonus data on recharge. Well the reason for that is that it has been discontinued. This applies in equal measure to the weekend data bonus on recharge for the other tariff plans.

However iPulse customers, StartPack, Supersaver+ and SmoothTalk Plus customers will still continue to receive the data bonus on recharge applicable to them.

However, you should also know that some MTN Tariff plans are still eligible for this data bonus offer e.g old tariff and StartPack plans.

Seriously don’t ask me what is 10MB that makes me to sweat and search for such a solution, well hope you haven’t forgotten that N100 was for 10mb before the new system of Cheap data bundle plan so it not a bad thing or big deal if you still wish in getting the free 10mb or more as usual.. lolzzz

I got the message and decided to give it a trial today by recharging with N200 on my MTN BetterTalk sim card and was given 100MB.

NOTE: Your airtime will still be intact!


How to get 1GB Data for #500 on MTN iPulse

The 1GB for N500 MTN data plan has been available for a while now, I would have posted it here but it skipped my mind. However, in a recent post where I talked about the new MTN pulse video, someone asked how to activate it.

I’ll go straight to the point on this, to activate the 1GB for N500 data plan, all you have to do is;

  • Migrate to MTN pulse by dialing*406*1#, you are already on MTN pulse, skip to the next step.
  • Recharge your phone with N500.
  • Dial *406*2# to activate the plan. It is valid for 7 days.
That’s all
