This guide shows you how to stop auto renewal on Etisalat Nigeria if you have a running data plan and do not want it renewed automatically on expiration.

When you subscribe to any data plan on the Etisalat Nigeria (now 9mobile) network, that plan is automatically set to renew. This means that the data plan will renew itself on its expiry date without asking you. This can be a good thing or a bad thing, depending on where you’re standing.

There are those who want the data plan to renew automatcally, and there are those who do not. If you prefer to not have it auto-renewed, the steps below show you how to cancel the auto renewal feature.
