MTN Data share, all the details and applicable data plan


With MTN Data Share, you can now share your MTN data bundle with anyone (friend, family or enemy) as long as they have an MTN SIM.

And it's very easy to set-up.
Check the table below for the data bundles supported.

Data Plan Bundle Price Plan Validity Bundle Code
250MB N1,300 30 Days *109#
500MB N2,000 30 Days *110#
1GB N3,500 30 Days *111#
3GB N6,500 30 Days *129#
5GB N8,000 30 Days *101#

And don't forget that MTN is doing a Data Delight promo, so for every 250MB plan you buy you will get 375MB. For 500MB plan you will get 750MB. For 1GB plan you will get 1.5GB. For 3GB plan you will get 4.5GB. And for 5GB plan you will get 7.5GB. So you can collaborate with your friends and buy 3GB with the price split equally among you, in the end you'll get more value for each naira.

So back to how to do the Data sharing.
You (any one of you all) have to buy the Data bundle (must be one of those in the table above).
Then dial *131*2*1# or text REG to 131; to register for MTN Data Share, you will receive a unique security PIN
You are required to change the system generated PIN to a new PIN your friends can easily remember by dialling*131*2*5# or by texting Change OLD_PIN NEW_PIN NEW_PIN to 131. E.g Change 0000 1234 1234 to 131. Where 0000 is old PIN and 1234 is your new PIN.
After changing the PIN, you are required to add beneficiaries to your MTN shared Data Bundle account via USSD menu *131*2*3# or by texting Add to 131. You can add up to 5 beneficiaries.
Once you have added beneficiaries, you (the initiator) will be able to share your available data bundle among the added beneficiaries by sending the keyword Share to 131 or simply dial USSD code *131*2*4#.

And that's how to share your Data bundle on MTN.
