MTN Secretly Reviewed Its Tariff Plans, Checkout!

MTN disabled some tariff plans to promote higher plans without giving prior notice. Recall last year that MTN launched two tariff plans: the MTN Xtra Pro and Xtra Special tariff plans. The MTN Xtra Pro tariff plan was touted and recommended as the cheapest call tariff plan on the network.

What makes Xtra Pro the cheapest tariff plan is the ability of subscribers on the network to make off-net and on-net within the country at a FLAT rate of 11kobo/sec (N6.60KB/min), upon successful access charge deduction of N5 daily.

Unfortunately, it was reported from a source that MTN secretly eliminate and discontinued Trutalk tariff, since 5 April, 2017 and Xtra Pro tariff plan with some other tariff plans from its list of tariff plans. So, these are the available list of tariff plans customers can presently migrate to:

√ MTN Pulse
√ MTN XtraSpecial
√ MTN BetaTalk
√ MTN XtraValue

Customers will no longer be able to migrate to the following plans below, but customers on these plans can migrate out to other available tariff plans but can never migrate back again.

× MTN TruTalk (Old)
× MTN BetaTalk(Old)
× MTN SuperSaver
× MTN SmoothTalk
× MTN iPulse
× MTN Zone

Before XtraPro tariff plan was discontinued on the 5th of April, 2017, the code for migration was *401#, but presently, if you choose to go back or migrate to the Xtra Pro tariff plan, you will get a prompt telling you that you are already an existing MTN tariff plan customer as well as giving you the MTN pulse code for direct migration which is *406#.

What's your say about this MTN review? Do you think is appropriate for MTN to just eliminate and discontinued the cheapest call tariff plan?

See How to Choose A Smartphone that is Smart for you

If you are looking for how to ignore varieties of smartphones and make up your mind in choosing your choice, this article will definitely help you conquer that attitude. When, you finally made up your mind in choosing a smartphone but may find it difficult to make a choice among the many brands and varieties of smartphones on display at the phone store.

I have fallen in this situation before when making a budget in choosing my smartphone but the display of many phone brands made away my primary choice and later bought Infinix Hot 4 Pro instead of Tecno Camon CX.

If you do not decide intelligently on your choice, you might end up buying a smartphone that does not make things smarter for you. There are some phone stores that retails over 20 different brands of smartphones such as: Infinix, Tecno, Gionee, Huawei, iTel, Motorola, Samsung and lots more which might divert your attention on other phones.

So, these are some classic clues that will help you in choosing the right smartphone.

1. BUDGET - This is the most important thing to consider before deciding on buying a smartphone because you don't want to buy a smartphone and later go broke. Moreover, you should also know that features of inexpensive smartphone can be more than expensive one.

So, properly check the features of smartphones within your budget first before you decide to go for a more expensive one. If you find all the features you need in a smartphone falls within your budget, there is no need then in going for expensive one.

2. OPERATING SYSTEM (OS) - There are many smartphone manufacturers that provides system update for their users to fix bugs and other errors. In fact, operating system is very important in a smartphone because is a software that runs the phone. You could choose from operating systems like Windows, Android and iOS.

Android and Windows are available on many smartphone brands, while iOS is only available on Apple brands. If you decides on choosing Apple brand, you should be prepared for a huge budget.

3. SYSTEM CONFIGURATION - In buying a smartphone, the main thing to consider is the system configuration because is responsible for the performance of your smartphone and how the smartphone operates.

The system configuration are the network type (2G,3G, 4G...), camera, battery capacity, RAM, ROM, external memory, connectivity, camera power, processor, screen resolution and among others.

You will find devices using good processor but the RAM might spoil it and decrease its performance because they almost carry out same functions. Try to get at least 3GB RAM or above and multiple processor to boost your smartphone performance to eliminate hanging, lagging and others.

To browse faster, you should choose a smartphone that supports 3G or 4G network type. In battery capacity, I recommend 3,000mAh and above.

4. UTILITY FEATURES - If you prefer a smartphone that is Smart, you should go for the one with utility features. Some smartphones are usually bundled with features like GPS, MP3, E-mail and video player.

If your work requires you to stay connected to the internet throughout the day, but you prefer listening to music. You should consider an utility featured smartphone because is better than carrying an MP3 device separately.

5. AFTER-SALE SERVICE - It is wiser to pick a brand that offers after-sale service. Giant brands like Samsung and Apple offers this service even in Nigeria, Tecno, Infinix, Apple, Samsung and lots more have after-sale service centre.

I hope these tips help you in getting a smartphone that is smart for you? You can add more tips in the comment section below.

Why VPNs Are A Safer Choice Than Proxies, Checkout!

Over the past several years, there has been a debate about which is safer—proxies or VPNs. Both proxies and VPNs allow users to mask their online identities and change their IP addresses. In this manner, both of them allow users relative anonymity on the internet.

For the average internet user who doesn’t know much about online security, VPNs and proxies might not seem much different. But it is important to recognize the differences between the two tools so that you can stay at your safest online and avoid hackers, fraudsters, and cyber criminals. After all, the last thing you want to do is have your personal information compromised while you are trying to stay safe online.

VPN and Proxy Usage Has Skyrocketed

The usage of VPNs and proxies has jumped significantly because a greater share of internet users are looking to keep their personal data safe. There are also more users than ever who want unfettered access to the internet.

With so many countries restricting the internet and blocking sites and particular types of content, it is easy to see why more people are turning to proxies and VPNs. Both tools help to open up the internet by giving users access to the web without having being curtailed by government content blocks.

Proxies Have Security Vulnerabilities

Proxies might seem like a great option, especially for the novice internet user who isn’t well-versed in the world of cyber security. But proxies have a number of issues. They are notoriously difficult to setup, they don’t always hide your online traffic well, and they don’t secure your data at all. In fact, if a hacker (or the proxy company) decided to target you, they could use the proxy to track all of your online activities while you are using the proxy. Bad news!

Choose a VPN and Encrypt Your Online Activities

If you want to make sure that you are keeping your online activities safe, then it is important to use a VPN. VPNs encrypt all of your online activities and communications, so that your online history is completely private and anonymous. If a hacker even could access your online data, they wouldn’t be able to decipher the encryption. VPNs are the safest option for internet users who are looking to stay anonymous online and keep all of their personal information protected.

Betwen VPN and Proxy, which do you prefer?

Check account balance, pay bills, pay for recharge cards, send money and perform other basic transactions with new short code Keystone bank had introduced. This short code *533# doesn't require internet access and can be dialed on any type of phone.

This feature comes when other Nigeria banks had successfully introduced their respective short USSD mobile banking code. 

According to Mr. Ernest Obi, the bank's Divisional Head, E-business channels, said the *533# code is reliable and can be used to make or perform third-party transfers to both Keystone bank and other account holders in Nigeria.

However, to initiate transfers to Keystone bank account and other beneficiaries in other banks, simply dial *533*Amount*Nu BAN number* from the number you registered with Keystone.

You can also top up by dialling *533*Amount# and from third-party, it can be done by dialling *533*Amount*Phone number#. Customers will require the 4-digit PIN created at registration to authenticate each transaction.

Activate MTN 100% Double Data without Tweaking IMEI Number

MTN 100% double data offer doubles your purchase data. Normally, the bonus will be activated automatically by MTN once you insert your SIM on any eligible smartphone but this article will show you how to activate the offer using another easier method.

Nevertheless, I published an article in activating the 100% double data offer by tweaking IMEI number of your phone but this article will definitely put an end to that method. Regardless of your phone type, you will be able to activate the 100% double data using just a USSD code.

So, if you are using an iPhone, Tablet, Android and any type of phone, you will be able to activate the offer without tweaking your IMEI and rooting of your phone.

MTN 100% double data works in a wonderful way. If you buy 500MB weekly data plan from MTN, it will be doubled to 2GB and vice versa.

How to Activate MTN 100% Double Data without Tweaking or Rooting

Go to your phone SMS message or Dialpad;

1. Send DOUBLE to 131 as a text message.
2. Send PROMO to 131 as a text message.
3. Finally, Send FREE to 131 as a text message.

After that, you will receive three messages saying;

1st message: "Sorry, The Command you have entered is incorrect."

2nd message: "Y'ello! Your request has been received and is being processed. You will receive a response shortly. Please don't resend your request. Thank you!"

3rd message: "Dear Customer, Enjoy data offers on MTN Deal zone, Dial *131*1#".

If you receive the last or third message, you can proceed to subscribe to any data plan and it will be doubled immediately. You can subscribe for the daily data plan of 50MB for N100 and if it works, you can then subscribe to higher data plans to get your data doubled.

Note: The third message determines your eligibility for the offer, so you must receive the third message and you can only subscribe to MTN data plan by dialling *131*1# and not other way.

How to Check Data Balance

You can always check the data balance by dialling *131*4# or send 2 to 131 as a text message.
