Which Mtn Tariff Plan Has The Cheapest Call Rate?
After careful calculations and studies, MTN TruTalk has the best and cheapest tariff plan for this year. How? I’ll show you if you keep reading.
MTN TruTalk is a prepaid tariff. With it, you pay only 11.26kobo/sec for calls to all other networks within Nigeria, but that is after you have been charged a daily access fee of ₦7.17.
This 11.26k/sec tariff does not cover your international calls as they will be charged at the standard international calling rate.
And don’t worry, if you don’t make any call on a particular day, you will not pay the daily access fee. MTN will only deduct the daily access fee whenever you make a chargeable national call.
Even when you send your first SMS of the day or carry out any other activity, MTN will not charge you the daily access fee.
And No, you will NOT be able to pay for the daily access fee from your bonus account. I know some of us will really love to do that!
Since this is one of the MTN tariff plans that gives a data bonus, let’s see how to receive the Free 10MB Monthly Data Bonus on MTN TruTalk.
Monthly Data Bonus on MTN TruTalk
To receive your Free 10MB Monthly data bonus on MTN TruTalk, make your first recharge of the month via the below listed applicable recharge channels OR your first call of the month from your main account/XtraTime account.
- Physical/Logical PIN
- Bank/ DYA
Just note that Share N Sell does not qualify you for the free 10MB Monthly TruTalk Data bonus.
MTN will gift you the Free 10MB Monthly Data Bonus ONCE every month on your first recharge of ₦1 (One Naira) and above OR after you have made your first call of the month from the main account/XtraTime.
Take, for instance, if your first month recharge is ₦100 (One Hundred Naira), you will receive the Free 10MB Monthly Data Bonus, or if your first call of the month from the main account/XtraTime is 10secs, you will also get the Free 10MB Monthly Data Bonus.
Note that it is only from one of the scenarios above you will receive the Free 10MB Monthly Data Bonus once a month and not from both. In other words, it is whichever one that comes first.
And you can use the data bonus to browse any site at any time; it has no restriction.
The validity of the Free 10MB Monthly Data bonus is 30days from the date of allocation.
Sorry, you cannot share/transfer the Free 10MB Monthly Data Bonus with another number.
If you have an active data bundle and also have the Free 10MB Data Bonus, it is the Data bundle with the least validity period that will deplete first.
How To Migrate To MTN True Talk
To migrate to TruTalk is FREE at any time. What that means is that MTN will NOT charge you for migrating to TruTalk even if you migrate countless times in a day.
Follow the steps below to migrate to MTN TruTalk:
- Text ‘TT’ to 131
- Dial *400# or dial *123*2*6# for the code to migrate to mtn true talk plan.
- myMTN App: Login to myMTN App, select ‘Other Plans’ and select ‘TruTalk’.

- Enter your phone number.
- Enter OTP and select ‘Proceed’.
- On the top right corner of the home page, click your name.

And note this, MTN will NOT charge you the daily access fee as soon as you migrate into MTN TruTalk. They will charge you the ₦7 access fee only when you make your first call in a day after migrating.
So once the access fee has been deducted, your calls to all local Networks in Nigeria will be charged at 11.26k/sec.
And if you do not have enough airtime to pay for the service fee, your calls to all local Networks in Nigeria will be charged at 15.36k/sec on the call rate.
Also, if all you have is just ₦7 in your main account after migrating to the TruTalk plan, your calls to all local Networks in Nigeria will still be charged at 15.36k/sec.
If for whatever reason(s) you decide to migrate to another prepaid plan after paying the MTN TruTalk daily fee, then your calls will be charged based on the call rate of that new tariff plan.
How To Check Balance Of MTN Trutalk Free 10MB Monthly Data Bonus
