My fellow NLanders, MTN is at it again!

I refused to migrate to the Happy, Fun or SmartLink tariff plans because I never understood what they 'really' were & MTN never cared to explain, so I remained and was comfortable in XtraConnect.

To my surprise I woke up this morning and discovered my XtraConnect and my mums FunLink had turned PayGO! I hope this is not the trap I have been tryna avoid for long.

Also, is MTN authorised to switch you to other tariff plans without your consent?

What the fk is wrong with this mtn! they will just wakeup one day and do whatever they like to your line and dont give a shi-t how you feel abt it!

Re: What The Hell Is MTN PayGo? by mcnepow(m): 11:59am On Jan 20, 2011
I got this from Mtn Loadedng (a group on FaceBook)
MTN PayGo is a simple tariff plan that we designed with the aim of empowering you to do so much more with your mobile phone without having to pay more. With PayGo, you can talk to 6 Family & Friends @ N12 per minute, including one international number and one from other networks. You also get free calls to 1 Magic number @ N250 / month and free midnight calls.
Re: What The Hell Is MTN PayGo? by mcnepow(m): 12:02pm On Jan 20, 2011
MTN LoadedNG also made mention of MTNTalkON but didnt explain wat that was.
I ask - is the magic numba a 24/7 tin and more clarificatn is needed as to how the nite call works.

MTN PAYGO is the new tariff plan that MTN has introduced to show real value for money with no hidden charge whatsoever. on PAYGO, you have the opportunity of registering 6 numbers comprising; 4 MTN Numbers, 1 other number plus an international number on your Friends and Family and make calls for 20k/sec or N12/min to those special numbers.
Also you can register one special number ( Magic Number) for N250 flat rate and call that number free of charge, all day, all night for one MONTH!!!!!! can you beat that?
Also you can purchase bundles that will enrich your calling experience Text (HAPPY to 131) - 22 Onnet mins, 30 Onnet SMS @N400 valid for 30 days
(FUN to 131) - 60 Onnet mins, 200 Onnet SMS @N1500 valid for 30 days

MTN launches new price plan .
Thursday, 20 January 2011 16:45 Bill Okonedo

Re: What The Hell Is MTN PayGo? by Stallion84(m): 4:12am On Jan 21, 2011
To me, the whole package is RUBBISH. whilst other networks are slashing call rates massively, MTN dey do cunny cunny. u can imagine that thier on net mtn- mtn calls still go for 30 naira while to other networks is still 35 naira. Previously, family and friends used to be 15 naira, and all they could do was a 2naira cut off it (now 13naira). do they think i only have 6 contacts on my phone or what. As far as i am concerned, Aitel and Etisalat are better choices and henceforth my MTN is meant for recieving kols only. am going airtel asap. MTN waayo
Re: What The Hell Is MTN PayGo? by Mobinga: 6:23am On Jan 21, 2011
