  1. not working!!!

    prepared subscribers should have theirs too!!
    we students will appreciate it pls


  2. I guess it’s not working bcs I didn’t subscribe to any of the mtn data plans you listed. Mtn don’t have sense. They ought to make the share for all data plans even if it’s as low as 100mb. They have plenty customers that’s why they can make all these unfair conditions.
