MTN Nigeria is stepping up to the plate with compelling mobile data bundles that offer huge volumes of data. One of those is the MTN 4GB for 1200 naira offer. It isn’t a standard data bundle but actually a double data promo under MTN’s Mega Deal Zone.

How it works is that MTN doubles the data you get on their standard 2GB for 1200 naira data plan, so you get 4GB instead. Validity on the total data volume is 30 days.This makes it great value for money if you are on a small budget for mobile data..

How to subscribe to MTN 4G for 1200 naira double data

There are two ways you can subscribe to MTN 4GB for 1200 naira double data offer – one by using the MyMTN mobile app, and the other by dialling a USSD code.

Option 1: Activate MTN 4GB for 1200 naira via MyMTN mobile app

  1. Download MyMTN mobile app from the Play Store by clicking HERE.
  2. Sign in to the app.
  3. Make sure you have ₦1,200 on your line.
  4. In the app’s Homepage, tap the “Mega Deal Zone” box
  5. You will find yourself on a page that says, “Crack The Egg
  6. Tap the egg labelled “Bundle” to display a DOUBLE DATA offer
  7.  If you get an offer to buy 2GB + EXTRA 2GB data bonus at ₦1,200, tap the “Accept” button. If you don’t, tap “Crack Another Egg
  8. Once you get the 4.5GB DOUBLE DATA offer, tap the “Accept” button.

PS: Note that there are times this offer is not available at all and you are presented with say a 20GB for ₦3,500 mega deal, or 9GB for ₦2000 deal, instead.

That is the first way to subscribe to this MTN double data offer. The second way does not require an app and Internet access. All you need to do is dial a USSD. Let’s look at it below.

Option 2: Activate MTN 4GB for 1200 naira via USSD code

  1. Make sure you have ₦1,200 on your line,
  2. Dial *121# on your line.
  3. On the next menu, select the option labelled “Data Offers 4ME“.
  4. On the next menu, select the option that says “Get 4GB for N1,200

Once subscribed, you will get a text message from MTN Nigeria confirming activation of your plan, as well as your data volume. That is it. You can use the package on your smartphone, feature phone, USB modem or MiFi. The MTN 4GB for 1200 naira subscription works on 2G, 3G, and 4G coverage.

A question people keep asking is, How long will this 4GB for 1200 naira double data offer and others from MTN be available? No-one knows. MTN Nigeria could keep it running for years. They can also put a stop to it at any time. It is a special offer on their regular 2GB for 1200 naira Monthly data bundle with a validity of 30 days. It has been around for some months now. Enjoy it while it is available.

2024 Update

MTN Nigeria appears to have taken the Data4Me and Mega Deal Zone plans off the table. They are no longer available in the app and I have not found them listed or offered anywhere else. Seeing as how things have become so hard in the country, I cannot even blame them for doing this. They have to find ways of surviving the current madness.

Personally, I have now adopted the XtraSpecial data offers as my preferred or favourite plans. If you are interested, you can check my recent tip-off article where I wrote about it: MTN Xtraspecial Prepaid Gives You The Best Data Plans.

  1. I know about the second option, this special offer isn’t permanent, sometimes it changes. I just hope MTN keeps it for a very long time, so we can enjoy it more.
