On a regular basis, Infinix and Innjoo promise free data with the purchase of specific devices from Jumia Nigeria. You hear something like “3GB free for 12 months”, “2015MB free data”, or some other free offer. Well, one mobilista says that he has made four purchases and not gotten the promised data:

I am aware that some buyers of the Infinix Hot Note had trouble activating the free MTN data that was bundled.. At some point, it was supposedly resolved and what buyers needed to do was text “Infinix” to 131 for new MTN subscribers and ‘Free” to 131 for existing MTN subscribers.
Have you purchased any smartphone from these brands with the promise of free data and gotten the data? If yes, what did you have to do to get the freebie? Do share, perhaps the info can be of help to others facing issues. If you didn’t get the free data…well, tell us your experience as well.
