I received an SMS from MTN that said, “…Get 4.5GB Data for only N2,500 to browse, chat, download all day, all night. Text 120 to 131 to activate.” I called MTN Nigeria Customer Care to confirm that this isn’t their night plan in disguise. “No,” the guy said. He assured me that I can use the 4.5GB 24/7.
So I loaded airtime and activated the plan, only for me to get a shocker… “Y’ello! Welcome to MTN Smartphone Bundle. You have 4.5GB (1.5GB Day & 3GB Night) valid for 30 days..” That was the SMS I got in response to activation. Turned out it is the same night plan that MTN is pushing out codedly!
I’ve been taken for a ride by MTN. Stay clear of the “120 to 131 4.5GB data plan being advertised by MTN. #CORPORATE419.
