Based on meticulous calculations and research, MTN TruTalk has the best and cheapest tariff package for this year. How? If you keep on reading, I’ll show you.
MTN TruTalk is a prepaid tariff provided by MTN. You only pay
11.26kobo/sec for calls to all other Nigerian networks with it, but only after you’ve paid a daily access fee of
Your overseas calls will be charged at the standard international calling rate, not the
Don’t worry, if you don’t make any calls on a particular day, you won’t be charged the daily access fee. When you make a charged national call, MTN will only deduct the daily access fee.
MTN will not charge you the daily access fee if you send your first SMS of the day or engage in any other activity.
And no, you will not be able to use your bonus account to pay for the daily access fee. I’m sure many of us would be happy to do so! If you want to know How to Check MTN Credit Account Balance (Airtime Balance Code), click the link.
Let’s have a look at how to get the free 10MB monthly data bonus on MTN TruTalk because it’s one of the MTN tariff plans that offers one.
To receive your Free
10MB Monthly data bonus on MTN TruTalk, make your first recharge of the month via the below listed applicable recharge channels OR your first call of the month from your main account/XtraTime account.
- Physical/Logical PIN
- Bank/ DYA
Please keep in mind that participating in Share N Sell does not qualify you for the free 10MB TruTalk Data bonus.
MTN will give you the free 10MB monthly data bonus ONCE a month when you make your first recharge of 1 (one naira) or more OR when you make your first call of the month from your main account/XtraTime.
For instance, if your first month’s recharge is 50 Naira, you’ll get the free 10MB monthly data bonus, and if your first call from the main account/XtraTime is 10 seconds, you’ll get the free 10MB monthly data bonus.
It’s important to note that you’ll only get the free 10MB monthly data bonus once a month if you choose one of the options above, not both. To put it another way, it’s whichever one comes first.
You can also use the data bonus to visit any website at any time; there are no limitations.
The free 10MB monthly data bonus is valid for 30 days from the date of allocation.
You are unable to share or transfer the free 10MB monthly data bonus to another phone number.
If you have an active data bundle and the free 10MB data bonus, the data bundle with the least validity period will be the first to expire.
To migrate to TruTalk is FREE at any time. What that means is that MTN will NOT charge you for migrating to TruTalk even if you migrate countless times in a day.
