Today, we are going to post on how MTN users can share data bundle (MB) with friends and family.
Not only can you share to family and friends, but you can also subscribe for a single data plan and let your other phones, tablets or even internet modems connect to it via MB sharing.
To transfer MTN data, first of all, Activate any MTN Data Plan of your choice, Then follow the instructions below;
Dial *131*2*1# or text REG to 131; to register for MTN Data Share, you will receive a unique security PIN
Change the system generated PIN to a new PIN they can easily remember by dialling*131*2*5# or by texting Change OLD_PIN NEW_PIN NEW_PIN to 131. E.g Change 0000 1234 1234 to 131. Where 0000 is old PIN and 1234 is your new PIN.
After changing the PIN, you are required to add beneficiaries to your MTN shared Data Bundle account via USSD menu *131*2*2# or by texting Add <MSISDN> <PIN> to 131. You can add up to 5 beneficiaries.
Once done with these processes, you will be able to share your available data bundle among the added beneficiaries by sending the keyword Share <PIN> to 131 or simply dial USSD code *131*2*3#.
NOTE: The MTN Data Share feature is charge less.
