MTN users will be offered free N5000 airtime when they update their Sim registration details.
This comes in line with NCC directives and it must be adhered to.
This process also known as Sim Card Update usually requires that you walk into any MTN center close to you with a government issued ID card.
The process involved is simply providing the details you used during the Sim registration, details such as date of birth, address, gender, name, and biometrics will be inquired of.
Airtel was the first to inform users of this update and now, MTN is doing same.
Benefits of MTN Sim Updates
Interestingly, MTN will compensate you for all the hassles you’ve passed through during the Sim update process by crediting your Sim with free N5000 airtime.
Failure to make this update on or before 19th of August will lead to disconnection from the network.
The telecommunication firm have already sent sms to millions of their subscribers requesting them to update their Sim details.
According to MTN:
“Y’ello! Kindly visit any MTN store with a valid government approved ID. Your SIM details need to be updated before August 19th. Dial *123*7*1# for the nearest store.”
If you are yet to receive the message, get ready, because it will soon get to you.
