January 2023 Update: MTN has stopped the offer of 24GB For ₦3500. There is no way to confirm if this is a temporary or a permanent move on their part. Feel free to give it a try every now and then. You never know.
If you are familiar with our work here at Mobility Nigeria, you already know that we do not get involved with free data cheats. We stay off all illegal and unethical practices here. As such, the information about getting 24GB data for ₦3500 that we are sharing here is 100% legit and officially offered by MTN, Nigeria’s largest telecom operator.
This was my favourite data plan for several months, so I am well conversant with it. You will agree with me that a data volume of 24GB data for ₦3500 is a mouthwatering offer.
But it doesn’t end there. When you subscribe for this plan, MTN also includes a YouTube Night data of 6GB for your use between the hours of 11 pm and 6 am.
Validity on the 12GB data is 30 days. Validity of the 12GB bonus data is about 2 weeks. The validity of the YouTube Night data is 2 weeks as well.
If you are subscribed to MTN, you can subscribe to this data offer and enjoy bonus data for a month for the tidy sum of ₦3,500. It is one of the most generous, pocket-friendly data offers I have seen.
How to activate 24GB data for ₦3500 on MTN Nigeria
You can activate 24GB data for 3500 naira data plan offer – one by using the MyMTN app. That is the way I do it all the time. Below are steps on how to get it activated.
- Get the MyMTN mobile app from the Play Store by clicking HERE.
- Sign in to the mobile app with your MTN number.
- Make sure you have ₦3,500 on your MTN line.
- On the app’s Homepage, tap the “Mega Deal Zone” box
- You will find yourself on a page that says, “Crack The Egg“
- Tap the egg labelled “Data4ME” to display a data offer.
- If you get an offer to buy 12GB + EXTRA 12GB data bonus at ₦3,500, that’s the one you want. Tap the “Accept” button. If you didn’t get that offer, tap “Crack Another Egg” for another offer.
- Once you see the 12GB + EXTRA 12GB offer, tap the “Accept” button.
That is all. Once done, your line will be credited with 24GB data, and you will get a text message from MTN Nigeria confirming activation of your plan, as well as your data volume. Once you get the notification, you can start using your data right away.
This data package is usable on your smartphone, feature phone, USB modem or MiFi. This 24GB data subscription works on 2G, 3G, and 4G coverage on MTN.
I have heard complaints from people saying that this offer is not valid and that they only get 12GB data. Probing further, I found out that all such complaints come from those using the *121# shortcode.
I don’t use that USSD code and so cannot speak about what the results are. But I have consistently gotten 24GB data from MTN for just ₦3500 by using the above process via the MyMTN app. It works.
It also appears that this offer may be available to subscribers who spend a minimum amount monthly on their MTN line. I have not been able to verify this. But I remember that some people have said to me in the past that they cracked the egg multiple times and didn’t get the offer.
That suggests to me that the 24GB data offer is not available for everyone but is restricted by the telecom operator to subscribers based on their monthly spend. I might be wrong, but if certain people are not getting the offer, that seems the only plausible reason.
I will love to have your feedback if you have tried this before. Share the results you got. It might help other subscribers.
