MTN Cheapest Data Codes
We have just seen the cheapest data bundles from MTN and how much they cost. The question that must be going through your mind is, “How do I activate these data bundles?” This section will address this question as we will show you how to activate these different data plans.
MTN Double Data Plan
As we mentioned earlier, MTN gives its customers the benefit of enjoying double their data subscription through this arrangement. This service is available to both new and old customers. How you purchase the bundle doesn’t matter. You can purchase USSD, text messages, or the MTN app. Once your SIM is activated to this service, you will always enjoy twice the data that you purchase.
To activate this service via SMS, take the following steps:
- Launch the messaging app on your phone.
- SMS “DOUBLE” to 131. Once you do this, you should get a message from MTN. Ignore this message and go to the next step.
- SMS “PROMO” to 131. You will receive another message upon doing this but you should ignore this message as well.
- SMS “FREE” to 131.
After completing these steps, proceed to purchase the data and you will get double the bundle that you purchase.
If you are using a new SIM, you can still activate the MTN Double Data service on this SIM card. The process is quite different as you will need to omit some of the SMS codes that we provided above. Here’s the process for activating the Double Data service on your new SIM:
- SMS “PROMO” to 131. You should get a popup message telling you the process is successful.
- Reply to this popup message with “1” to proceed. You should get another confirmation message.
- Dial *131# to purchase the data bundle that you desire and you will get double of the bundle that you purchase.
