MTN 100% double data offer doubles your purchase data. Normally, the bonus will be activated automatically by MTN once you insert your SIM on any eligible smartphone but this article will show you how to activate the offer using another easier method.
Nevertheless, I published an article in activating the 100% double data offer by tweaking IMEI number of your phone but this article will definitely put an end to that method. Regardless of your phone type, you will be able to activate the 100% double data using just a USSD code.
So, if you are using an iPhone, Tablet, Android and any type of phone, you will be able to activate the offer without tweaking your IMEI and rooting of your phone.
MTN 100% double data works in a wonderful way. If you buy 500MB weekly data plan from MTN, it will be doubled to 2GB and vice versa.
How to Activate MTN 100% Double Data without Tweaking or Rooting
Go to your phone SMS message or Dialpad;
1. Send DOUBLE to 131 as a text message.
2. Send PROMO to 131 as a text message.
3. Finally, Send FREE to 131 as a text message.
After that, you will receive three messages saying;
1st message: "Sorry, The Command you have entered is incorrect."
2nd message: "Y'ello! Your request has been received and is being processed. You will receive a response shortly. Please don't resend your request. Thank you!"
3rd message: "Dear Customer, Enjoy data offers on MTN Deal zone, Dial *131*1#".
If you receive the last or third message, you can proceed to subscribe to any data plan and it will be doubled immediately. You can subscribe for the daily data plan of 50MB for N100 and if it works, you can then subscribe to higher data plans to get your data doubled.
Note: The third message determines your eligibility for the offer, so you must receive the third message and you can only subscribe to MTN data plan by dialling *131*1# and not other way.
How to Check Data Balance
You can always check the data balance by dialling *131*4# or send 2 to 131 as a text message.
