If you have observed closely, MTN has stopped to deduct their customer’s airtime whenever their data are used up. At least i love the idea because of the dangers of background data on Android phones. Now, I shouldn’t bother my airtime being zapped even when i have no data. But if you still insist on browsing with your airtime, you can as well browse with airtime on MTN and other networks.

Is this idea really cool?

Yes it is. The reason is because most of their customers subscribe to some specific data plans. It is now left for you to tell them when you need to browse with your money. Some of these plans are;

  • Opera bundle for Airtel
  • Social bundles
  • WhatsApp bundles
  • Eskimi bundles and others.
If an MTN customer has chosen any of the above plans, it simply means that he/she just wanted that specific data plan. If he/she chose WhatsApp bundle, his/her airtime won’t be deducted as data charge. But in a situation where you needed to complete your activity online with your airtime, you can simply request for a data reset.

Code to browse with airtime on MTN
