As a matter of fact, you will find a lot of queries on the internet concerning MTN data plans. However, there are certainly many things you need to consider when choosing your MTN data plan.

However there are two things you should obviously consider prior to making your choice.

One, if you’re a heavy browser, you will need a plan that is at least 10GB every month. Because when you consider the frequent downloads and streaming, you’ll surely be needing that much.

Two, if you have a tight budget, you’d be looking at a plan that is quite pocket friendly while offering you the best value.

MTN offers a lot of exciting data bundles and with these wide range of plans; you have many options to choose from depending on your unique browsing needs.

MTN Data Bundles

MTN Android One Plan

This plan was launched for the Infinix Hot 2 phone which was at that time new in the market. However, it is also available to other android phones. The plan offers 1GB data at a very affordable cost of N500 and the validity period is 30 days. To activate this plan, send A1 to 131.

3.5GB Data Plan

This is another excellent option if you’re looking for an affordable plan. The data plan is a great choice if your 1GB or 1.5GB hardly ever takes you through one full month. You just need to add an extra N1000 to get this plan which is more pocket friendly.

MTN allows you to roll over your unused data to the next month. For example, if you have 100MB of data left for this month, it will be added to your data for next month — provided that you allow automatic renewal. That is, you must have loaded the subscription amount before your current plan expires.

Note that all the plans work for Android, iPhone and laptop users.

PS. Before subscribing to any of these plans, ensure that the 3G network is available in your area. (If your phone does display 3G or H beside the network signal indicator, this means the 3G network is available). Without 3G, you won’t enjoy high-speed browsing.

  37. Sir, Kuta

    To the best of my knowledge I think you can use the 1.5gb on daylight while 3GB in the night by simply turning off your data and switch it back again at night when it’s 9:00pm that will stop deduction from 1.5gb and switch to 3gb all the nights.

  38. Olotu

    Abbas, pls how do I deactivate automatic renewal of a data bundle? Thanks.

  45. elvis

    Pls can activate 10 or 25 mb with my night plan after the initial 1.5gb gets exhausted so I can use whats app during the day

    1. Abass


      I’m not sure if that will work.

  46. My oga, didn’t know you own this blog. Well done. Got what i needed. Cheers

  47. Lara

    Thanks, the information here has been helpful. About the night plan tho, what do I do if I exhaust the 4.5GB before expiration date? Can I reactivate? And if no, will I have to switch my cellular data off to avoid charges on my account? Plus if I switch my data off while waiting for auto renewal, will it auto renew. Thank you! Very much.

    1. Abass


      If you exhaust your 4.5 GB before the expiration date, you cannot reactivate until after the 30-day validity period. And each time you connect to the Internet before the validity period ends, you will be charged in credit.

      As for the auto-renew feature, it doesn’t work. You will have to re-subscribe by resending the code. However, if you do that on the same day your validity period ends, you will have your unused data from the previous month rolled over to the new month — that’s if you have any unused data left.

      Hope this answers your question?

  48. Please what’s the code I could use to check my remaining data?

    1. Abass

      To check your remaining bonus data, dial *559*2#
      To check your remaining main data, text 2 to 131, and you’ll receive a text message containing your remaining data.

      I’m not sure if you can share with someone else. I’ve never tried it before.

  54. titi

    Happy you acted on my complaint. Have a good day sir.

  55. titi

    Whoever posted information on this website needs to paste the right information. I used the details given for the nite plan (*108#) and that gave me the weekend plan. This is totally on unfair. If posting valuable information on your site please check that it’s correct. Extremely disappointed.

    1. Abass


      With a sense of deep regret, I sincerely apologize for the mistake made in the blog post, which led to your acting upon wrong information.

      It’s quite unfortunate that we got the information from an incorrect source and were not careful enough to crosscheck the blog post afterwards. We’re very sorry for disappointing you and for all forms of inconvenience caused as a result of our blunder.

      Please accept our apology.

      PS. We have updated the blog post with the correct information to avoid misinforming other people.


  56. pls will this plan work for a PC? As in can i use it on my modem?

    1. Abass

      Yes, it will work on your PC through a modem

    2. Chris

      Firstly! There is a way you can use the 3G night in the day time when your 1.5 day plan is exhausted. And is working
      Secondly! You can subscribe for more data even when your monthly subscription is not yet expired and your remain 3G night plan will be rolled over. The second information is simple. And can be said or written publicly And this is how it works, if you subscribe for the 4.5 day and night plan and your 1.5G morning got finished you can simply subscribe again by by texting 102 to 131 and you remaining data will be rolled over. The first. The first information is confidential and can NEVER be said or written publicly because of the unknown.

      1. Laycon

        Pls i need information on how i can use 3Gig Night in d day. Pls

  57. Daniel U.C

    Hello sir, pls if my night plan is still remaining, can it be reactivated with a lower plan? I mean like with 100MB plan

    1. Abass


      No, you cannot reactivate it with a lower plan. You need to renew with a similar plan.

  58. Thanks much for sharing. Abass, please how can I make the 3gigg to work during day after the 1.5gigg is exhausted. Thanks

    1. Abass

      Lekan, there’s no way you can get the 3GB to work during the day (except, perhaps you go the unethical way). Once you’ve exhausted your 1.5GB bonus, your use of the 3GB data will be restricted to between 9pm — 6am.

  59. kesha

    Abass can the 3GB exhaust before it expires before

  60. Thanks a lot for this valuable information you have shared.

  61. Luqman

    Thanx for the info. For the nite plan, is it possible to use the main 3gb @ nites while the bonus 1.5gb can be used exclusively in the daytime? I want to be sure that I will not have to exhaust the 1.5gb on both day and nite before I can access the 3gb which of course can be used only @ nites thereby getting cut off in the daytime.

    1. Abass


      Well, that’s exactly how it works. You will have to exhaust the 1.5GB bonus on both day and night before you’re restricted to the night-only 3GB.

      If you’re looking for a way to restrict your bonus 1.5GB to the day, while you use your 3GB at night, sorry, that’s not possible.

      1. Luqman

        A bass,
        Thank you. God bless you. Keep up the good work.

        1. Abass

          You’re welcome, bro.

  62. This is a great information. thanks

    1. Abass

      You’re welcome, Chibuzo.

      1. paul
