Last month was not a good month for users of MTN’s night plan because they reduced the data allocation for the Night plans. However since it’s a new month and you might be renewing your subscription soon so I decided to write this post. I will also post the ones for other networks and post it here as  well. So without further ado , lets get started.

  • MTN Mpulse Data Plan Tweak
The first one I’ll be talking about in this post is the new Mpulse Data plan that  MTN introduced towards the end of last month, this plan gives you

  • 350 MB for N 50 (weekly plan)
  • 1.2 GB for N 150 (Monthly plan)
However you cannot use it to browse on other websites apart from the MTN Mpulse website but there’s a workaround to this you can make this work with HTTP Injector.
Here’s what to do 
Migrate to MTN mPulse Plan>> Dial *344*1# from a new or existing MTN SIM>>Send ‘mPulse’ to 131
Then make sure you have the following
  • An Android phone
  • MTN NG 3G or 4G sim without active data
  • Use the default MTN APN settings


How To Import Config On HTTP Injector Vpn

  • Download HTTP Injector VPN and the MTN Config from the link above
  • After installing HTTP Injector, launch the VPN app
  • Tap on the Paper icon located at the top-right corner
  • Tap on Import Config and locate the MTN Config file and tap on it to import.
  • Finally, tap Start to connect. It will connect within 10 seconds. When it does connect, launch your browser and start surfing

There actually 2 dealzone plans, the new on and the old one. The old one is for MTN pulse users, It gives you 1GB for N500 when you dial *406#

The new MTN Deal zone gives you 4GB for N1000 unlike the regular data plan that gives you 1.5GB for N1000. You also get 1GB for N200 and 250MB for N100

  •  1GB for N200 (7 days validity) 
  • 250MB for N100 (3 days validity)

MTN Bumps its Night Plan Data limit, fair 2GB usage now applies 5

MTN Nigeria has again reviewed its data plan offerings for about the infinite time this year but this time it is all about their night plan subscription.

Having caused a stir earlier in the year with the reduction in the amount of browsing data it offers subscribers; from a NGN25 charge for 500MB to half of that; they seem to be doing so again but all for the good reasons this time. This resulted in users using multiple SIM cards to get through a single night subscription.

However, the new change means users can now accumulate and use a maximum of 2GB for the night without switching SIMs anymore.Before you can access all the crippled night plan though you have to be not only an MTN subscriber but also on their MTN pulse plan.

No stress talks just follow the image below and you’re in

MTN e-SIM card Service: What is it? Here’s everything to know as MTN begins its very first trial in West Africa

MTN e-SIM card Service: What is it? Here's everything to know as MTN begins its very first trial in West Africa 8

So, couple days ago MTN announced it is introducing its virtual SIM technology simply called eSim cards in Nigeria which will provide the same functionalities as physical SIM cards while creating ease and eventual solution with handling many physical cards.

MTN announce e-SIM service in West

With eSim cards now available for mobile, Sim cards have undergone a 360-degree transformation. In this part of the world where telcos have moved from macro sims to micro, and nano sims, eSim cards is the next generation of SIM card evolution.

But many subscribers will be forgiven for not having any clue on the new innovation

We get so many public releases in the world of tech you might actually be swept off your feet ignoring the tiny announcements.

That won’t be the case anymore as we would go through every little facet about the new MTN eSim tech you need to know

Shall we…

What is the MTN e-SIM card tech about?

Basically, the e-SIM card technology represents the next step in the evolution of Subscriber Identity Modules (SIM cards), and designed to deliver unprecedented freedom and flexibility.

MTN Sim card 360 degree evolution

Unlike the physical SIMs, the virtual sim is built into the device(smartphone, wearables) and therefore cannot be lost or damaged by the owner. If the mobile device gets lost or damaged however, the user will need to visit an MTN store to have it deactivated.

They also support multiple profiles and allow customers to connect multiple numbers to their e-SIM devices especially if they are frequent travellers who need to use different sim cards in different countries.

This means, no more switching between different network operators, with the MTN e-SIM, you’re good to go.

How MTN e-SIM cards work

First things first, to use MTN eSim cards, it has to be first activated on your phone.

As with every banking app recently, this is a cautious move to limit the occurance of data and finance theft. By ensuing on the device locked in to the e-SIM cards only have access to its functioning.

According to MTN, activation of the MTN eSim has to be done in an MTN store by a customer care agent. The process is done at no cost to the subscriber too.

Once the device is certified compatible with the eSim, an account profile is created for the subscriber and the agents complete the integration process with the user. Once the integration is completed, a customer will find that using the virtual card is basically the same as using the current sim.

However, there’s a new catch right here which is more or less a welcome addition…

While physical sim cards can store up to 200 contacts, MTN has announced that its eSim cards can store more than 200 contacts.

This is pretty much a good move but a case of doing the right thing at the half-right time. While subscribers have resorted long ago to store contacts on their Google accounts, users who feel the need to keep check of how much their data is used against them might find this helpful.

However, current phone numbers cannot be linked to the eSim cards at the moment.

How to activate MTN e-SIM cards on my device?

Second thing after understanding how the new tech thing works is to check for the eligibility of the new tech for your device.

You’ll need to visit any of our MTN stores. Our customer care agents will check your device for eligibility and walk you through the setup process.

MTN

As with many network providers and their data offerings these days, virtual sim cards are not available for everyone yet, as only a few phones are currently compatible and can be integrated with it. Only certain brands of Google, Apple and Samsung phones can have eSims integrated into them.

For now, MTN states that the few compatible Google phones are Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL. For Apple you have iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, iPhone 11 Pro Max, iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max and iPhone XR. The Samsung S20 series are also compatible with eSim cards.

Talk about prioritising the flagships first…

How the introduction of MTN e-SIM cards could benefit you

Notwithstanding the sophistication of e-SIMs, the onboarding requirements are the same as are required for a physical SIM. Hence, SIM registration in line with existing regulatory prescriptions remains a requirement for activating a device embedded with an e-SIM.

MTN e-SIMs are particularly useful for people who want to manage personal and business lines easily and effectively or want a separate profile for data.

The new technology will also be extremely convenient for frequent travelers and tourists, making it easier for them to opt for and keep a local subscription when visiting Nigeria.

The trial which kicked-off couple days ago will run for one year and is open on a first come first served basis to a limited number of subscribers who own compatible devices.

No doubt MTN is spearheading e-SIM adoption in Nigeria as part of efforts to enable the African digital economy. The feedbacks for the next year will be quite important too moving forward.
