MTN Discontinues Free Night Calls | Xtra Cool 2017

Top of the day to you MTNDATA Readers, The saying that whatever has a beginning must surely have an end might have just been applied to MTN subscribers, as MTN has finally suspended all free night calls. Now, MTN will charge you at normal rate during Happy hour (12:30AM to 6:00AM) regardless of the amount of airtime you are having at that time. 
The hours of unending chit chat with friends and family at free hours of the day has been brought to an end by MTN.  Recently MTN stopped the TrueTalk + tariff plan and now again they have stopped the free Midnight call. The so called MTN XTRA COOL that have being saving lives, most especially the students.

I’m sure guys that has being using this free mid-night call will testify how it has helped them in so many ways and also save them from little cash, not only that, it alos helped them to get in touch with their lovers and pals that are far from them.  According to MTN Update recently, they said 

Please cascade to the associates that MTN happy hour call (Free mid-night call) which started October 2006 has been discontinued effect tonight, as directed by NCC. Hence, all happy hours calls will be billed from tonight. Thank you!.” 

Like seriously, it’s a sad news indeed because I’m a victim of MTN free mid night call Xtracool which before now users can make free mid night calls from 12:30am to 4:30am with a minimum of N100 in their balance. Though there is MTN Beta Talk tariff plan, for those that don’t really understand this tariff plan should kindly read my post concerning that and how to opt in for the tariff plan

If I may ask, what do you think you will miss from this suspension or do you no longer make free night call? But whether you like it or not, the memories of MTN Xtracool free night call will surely live in the mind of many Nigerian youths your long.

HOW TO CHANGE YOUR PIN VIA USSD

To change your transfer pin via USSD, dial *601*default/old PIN*New PIN*New PIN# then press the send button.  For example, if you want to change your pin from default to 1234, then you have to dial *601*0000*1234*1234#.  If entered correctly, you will receive a notification message that your pin has been charged successfully.

MTN SEASON OF SURPRISE NOW YEAR OF SURPRISE SECRET BEHIND IT | MTN DATA

MTN SEASON OF SURPRISE NOW YEAR OF SURPRISE SECRET BEHIND IT | MTN DATA
No doubt MTN Nigeria is one of the leading and reliable GSM mobile network provider in Nigeria.  Recently, MTN Nigeria last year announced a promo tagged Season of Surprise.  It was a month long promo through which subscribers were reward with bonus call credit, bonus SMS and even some were given bonus MTN data to access the internet.  The Season of Surprise promo of using just #50 to get almost N8,000 credit was attractive to us all but it’s beneficial to MTN Nigeria in many ways too.

MTN SURPRISE DATA PLAN 1.3GB FOR 1K | 3.7GB FOR 2K MTN INTRODUCES NEW DATA PLAN

Since November 2014, MTN have been coming out with different surprises.  We are in the ninth month of the year and I am sure their bag of surprise is yet to be empty.  But before they come out with the end of the year surprise, I will try to look at most of what MTN have offered their subscribers this year and what benefits can they be getting from such gestures.
MTN Nigeria is currently giving credit up to eight thousand naira N4000 and N4800 in two different accounts to selected line for just N50 per day and N200 per week.  Some Nigerians have to try up to three sim/lines before they can get a line that is eligible for the offer.  If you are yet to benefit from the promo, the code for this offer is *142*3*1#.  Some selected lines are also enjoying 100% bonus on all recharge but it is valid till 11:59PM of the day.  More surprise is here with MTN weekend bonus of 100% to be used till the end of every weekend.  MTN Nigeria is definitely throwing more surprises to the party.

The bonus credit code was originally *567*1# “it was a bonus of N33,600 for just N30 imagine!”.  The subscription code was later changed and also MTN carried out some changes to the promo.  MTN Nigeria has not totally neglected the *567*1# and they are currently using it to surprise some of their customers with Call Credit and Internet Data.  This is again being offered to selected line and the surprise even differs from one subscriber to another.  I was given 1000minutes of call time and some internet data for just N1,500 only with 1 month validity.  Others are given less value for a lesser amount and with 7days validity.
MTN Nigeria is also beginning to increase the value of the data given for each price.  One thousand naira purchase will give you up to 500MB of data “I still believe SME Data is better and you can check it out here”.
Not all the surprises have been very pleasant.  They have surprised a lot of their customers by blocking their main line with little or no prior notice. 
MTN Customers Sim Validation Without Prior Notice
Those that were notified have to queue for hours and some even for days before they can re-register as requested of them.  It is a directive from Nigeria Communication Commission (NCC) as we are told; it’s applicable to all GSM service providers’ lines in Nigeria.
MTN Customers Sim Validation Without Prior Notice
One other surprise was that newly registered MTN Nigeria lines were able to browse without subscription early in the year 2015.  Some were even able to share data to other lines without making any purchase of data.  Don’t jubilate; it is no longer working.  If you wish to enjoy MTN internet access, then make a subscription to any of their data plans.
Finally,
Our Dear MTN DATA Readers, MTN is without doubt the biggest GSM service provider in Nigeria and anything that the company does will always have an effect on the sector.  Again, MTN must find a way to keep customers and acquire new one in a very competitive environment.
It is there a possibility that MTN is bringing out this surprises as a way to keep their customers.  One of the factors that are used to determine the size or position of GSM service providers in Nigeria is the number of action users on their network.  If you want to enjoy the bonus credit offer and you are not given on your main line, you will automatically purchase another line.  Your main line will still be important to you because that is known by your friends, family, business associate and even your bank.
What better way can you now find that allow a GSM operator to keep its customers and increase the number of active lines? Your answer might be as good as mine.

How to Open + Update Your MTN Line Using BVN Details


Has MTN Blocked your Line?  Unblock Now with your BVN.  Late 2015 and earlier this year 2016 MTN has disconnected and blocked the line of some subscribers which they think have not properly done a complete registration.

Recommended:

What will happen when a line is blocked?

A blocked line will be unable to make and receive calls, messages and even access the internet with their sim card.

Initially, the only solution to unblocking/reactivating any line blocked by MTN is to visit their nearest office.

A moment ago, I checked some of their offices in my area; the queue was so long to the extent of causing traffic congestion.

Of late, MTN make public another means of reactivating without any commotion, through the use of BVN.  This can be done from the comfort of your room under 5 minutes or less.   You only need to grant MTN the permission to use your BVN registration details to complete your line registration without stress.


HOW TO REACTIVATE YOUR BLOCKED MTN SIM WITH YOUR BVN DETAILS


MTN won’t just use your BVN to complete your SIM registration without your consent.  You have to give them a go ahead by sending a command via SMS.

Send “Yes” to 799 to grant MTN the permission to use your BVN to complete your SIM registration.

NOTE:  This only work for the line you used for your BVN Registration

If you don’t have a BVN, you will still have to visit MTN office to complete your registration and activate your line back.

I think this concept will reduce the unnecessary and long queue at MTN offices Nationwide or what do you think?
