  1. Must i go to bank before i will be able to use ALAT virtual dollar card? Can i set everything up with my phone without going to bank?

  2. I have monthly subscription on my MTN line…my question is that if i subscribe to the night plan,will it affect my current subscription or what?

  3. When I subscribed for the night data, I was planning to download some videos, but it deducted the data from my main data plan and the nightlife is still at 250mb, and the time was around 12:30, can it be that I can’t use the night data when I’m still having my main subscription?

    • It’s not supposed to remove from your main data while having an active night plan. I think you either have exhausted the nightlife data or you didn’t subscribe before browsing.

      • I don’t think that’s the case. I’m currently experiencing the same, the data is being removed from my main account while my night data remains at 250mb

  4. See MTN is taking more than they can chew. Whch one is 50naira for 250mb whch network does that?. I hate this. I just don’t knw why I did not get Airtel card this evening while coming home. Mtn sucks.

  5. I’ve been busing the MTN night stuff but recently, each time I try activating the night stuff, they replies me that I can’t activate because am on DND.
    What’s DND? I never subscribed for such.
    Please, contact me on 08034634441 via text or Whatsapp. Please help.

  6. How long does it last? I subscribed to it some days ago but didn’t use it. I tried to subscribe tonight and they’re tell me it’s only for pulse customers. Meanwhile, I’m suspecting my former subscription is still active.

  7. Comment:hello…I subscribe as usuall but the thing is telling me that only ipulse user can used it and am on ipulse already…help me out

  8. I tried to subscribe as usual around 12.05am and i recieved the text that said that my request has been received but i haven’t gotten d subscription or any other reply that shows that the transaction was successful,and i have airtime on my phone for it.

    • I contacted MTN regarding the “MTN night plan not subscribing“. They said they are aware of it and the case has been reported to their technical support team. Feedback will be provided when fixed.

  9. It has been working, bt lately it stoped. Wheneva I send d msg, it wont go. It will say msg nt sent even with enough airtime on my phone. I tried usin d code, bt it said d command is wrong

  10. So if one has a data plan of 1.5gig can he still enjoy the the 25naira free night browsing without the 1.5g data being deducted

Hey fam, don't go without a reply!
