Hey guys!! Remember when Infinix launched the Android One phone in collaboration with MTN Nigeria. As part of the deal, MTN offered all users of the Infinix Hot 2 1 GB of data for N500, which can be renewed over a period of 12 months.
It seems MTN have backed out from their initial offer, stating they can no longer continue. Normally, you send a text A1 to 131 to activate the plan. Here’s the new story when you text that command:
Sorry, in adherence to regulatory requirements, the Android One bundle has been withdrawn. Please dial *123*3# *123*4# for other exciting bundles offers. Thank you.
Here’s another reply to a tweet from MTN Nigeria’s handle:
It’s sad really. Many buyers of this device tried and failed to activate this plan on their phones. I never bothered. No thanks to our tweaking boys, who must’ve harvested the data even before the phone got to people’s hands. I still blame MTN for their laxity. Why announce a plan you know clearly doesn’t adhere to regulatory requirements? Come to think of it, did anyone here use this plan at all?
