  1. Great tariff plan though but I am sticking with my mtnpulse.

  2. A friend collected ghs15 from me and register some internet bundle for me of which every month they will update it for me for 6 months. how is it done? I mean how to register for such offer?

  3. we need the pkg that we could be charging N2
    per minute

  4. i cannot share credit from my mtn like. that the plan i’m running on does not support such service, ihave successfully changed my pin

    • You might be right about it Umar, Some of their tariff plans do not support 777 credit transfer. But you can always get in touch with their support for clarification

  5. A friend yesterday told me of the Home Zone plan of MTN. She gave me the migration code as *135*1# and I applied it. Later, MTN asked me to dial *135*4# to configure my phone for the zone thing. I did that also but rather than send any instruction to me, I was and still being given an error message on my phone screen. I use a Phantom 3 Tecno phone. I need your advice on what next to do.

    • you can switch to home-zone by dialing *123# and then use the tariff plan migration option

    • Throw that handset inside water for two consecutive days, the solution to your problems would be solve within shot period of time
