The app is a must-have for every MTN users for access and full control of your phone number and what better time to download this app if not now that MTN is giving out 500MB for doing so? The MyMTN app is available for download on both the Google Play store for Android devices and the Apple App Store for iOS
However, it has to be the first time you’re downloading the MyMTN app on that device for you to get the bonus as MTN is only giving the bonus to first-time users of the app. So if you have previously downloaded the MyMTN app on your Android or iOS device then you will not get the 500MB bonus for downloading the app.
As for eligibility and knowing if your SIM is eligible, all SIMs are eligible for the bonus as long as your device hasn’t downloaded the MyMTN app before. If you haven’t downloaded the MyMTN app before then you can follow the steps below to download the app and get your 500MB.
How to download MyMTN app and receive Your 500MB
MTN is giving out a free 500MB bonus to its subscribers through the myMTN app and in this article, we will be showing you how to get your own 500MB simply by downloading the MyMTN app.
First things first, you’ll have to download the MyMTN app from the Google Play store if you’re using an Android device or download from the Apple App Store if you’re using an iOS device. Alternatively, you can send “MYMTN” in a text to 5018 and a direct link to download the app will be sent to you.
- After downloading the app, launch it and select your country.
- Next, input your MTN phone number and an OTP (One-time pin/password) will be sent to that phone number.
Once you get it, input the OTP in the app and if you haven’t downloaded the app on your phone before, you’ll receive 500MB which will come in form of a text message saying “Dear customer, your free 500MB Data Activation was Successful. Expires in 3days Time.
If you get “Y’ello, your subscription to Myapp has failed. Please retry AGAIN LATER” then you know that you are not eligible/the app has already been downloaded on your phone before. Nonetheless, you can still use the app to do all the stuff listed above.
The 500MB is said to expire in 3days but some MTN users have reported that the data often gets wipe in 24hours which just a day so I’ll recommend you make use of the data as soon as possible before it gets wiped. You can check the remaining data by dialling *559 *4#. If you have any further questions about the MyMTN app then feel free to drop it in the comment section down below.
