Subscribers of all GSM networks in Nigeria are now able to share data with friends who are on the same network. Personally, I think this is an awesome service which will really come in handy.
I ‘m very sure that we’ve all been in situations were we run out of data but a friend has gigs of data on his phone but just can't share it. Well, that is now over. I’m going to show you how to send those megabytes of data from one phone to another.
How to Share Data on MTN Nigeria
Thanks to MTN Data Share, subscribers can now send megabytes (MB) of data to one another. To get started you’ll have first activate the service by dialing *131*2*1# or you can also send the word REG to 131.
You will then receive your default PIN which you’ll have to change by dialing *131*2*5# or by using the SMS format, which is “Change <Old PIN> <New PIN> < New PIN>” to 131. E.g “Change 0000 4321 4321” to 131.
Now that you’ve successfully changed your pin, you can add your recipients phone numbers to your MTN shared Data Bundle account by dialing *131*2*2#, you can also do this via SMS by texting in this format, “Add <recipients phone number> <PIN>” to 131. Note that you will only be allowed to add 5 beneficiaries.
To share data with the numbers on your beneficiary list, all you have to do is send an SMS in this format “SHARE <PIN> to 131 or you can dial *131*2*3#.
To check your data balance on MTN, Dial send “2” to 131 via SMS
