Can MTN Internet Data Plans Be Rolled over?

Yes, they can. Just be sure to subscribe before your current subscription expires. That way, the roll over will be effective. In a case where the current subscription expires, data roll over cannot be done.

Can MTN Data Plans Be Auto Renewed?

Yes., they can be auto renewed. They are automatically auto-renewed at the end of the validity period. Just be sure to have sufficient account balance enough to pay the subscription bill. If for example, you subscribed to a N1000 data plan, be sure to have a minimum airtime balance of N1000 before the data expires.

Checking your MTN data plan balance can be done in two ways. The first is via the use of USSD codes, while the other is via sending a short message service (SMS).

To check your MTN data plan balance via USSD code, dial *131# and reply with 4. Alternatively, simply dial *131*4#. To check the data bundle balance via SMS, send 2 to 131 and a response will be sent to you containing information relating to data balance.
