Use any of the data codes above for your iPhone, Android or other smartphones and it will work perfectly fine.

To buy MTN data, follow these steps:
Make sure your MTN line is in your phone and is active
Recharge your MTN line with the amount you need for your preferred data plan
Dial the code or send the SMS for the data plan you want using the codes above
A screen will appear asking you to confirm your purchase
Type 1 for Yes and click OK
You will receive a message saying your purchase is successful and the amount of data you bought
Note that if you are using a dual SIM Android phone, you will have to check your SIM settings in the Settings menu to make sure that MTN is set as the preferred network for browsing because only one network can be set to browse at a time.
Also check the cellular network settings to ensure that the preferred network type is what you want it to be whether 3G only, 2G only, 3G & 2G or 4G.
Also note that it is better to buy a more expensive data plan with more data allowance that will last longer than to buy a cheaper data bundle that will cost you more over the same period because you buy it multiple times.
