  1. Well done ms Linda, you’ve got the way! let MTN go and re- organized this plan again, is not benefiting at all.

  2. When I had about it I thought I can convert it to data, just wasting without making
    used of it let them change it to data bonus as the case may be..

  3. The MTN incoming minutes is not benefiting to people like us for now. If you really want to help customers, increase its area of application. You can show us how to convert it to data or how to use it in our country.

  4. This free incoming minutes whatever is not benefiting me in any way I was even thinking it’s something I can use in exchange for data or so but certainly it’s not so the incoming 300mins that u people gave is just useless to me so pls I prefer the pulse point bonus or even data bonus thanks.

  5. It is better if as someone mentioned you give us additional bonus or data as we have very very little to do with that roaming something. Certainly many will benefit and may will not.Thank you for having me.

  6. That’s not encouraging atall, so despite all the call and data charges you people can’t come up with the idea of dashing subscribers bonus on call or data instead of dashing us what will not be useful, I was sent a message that my free incoming calls is now 300mins,glory be to God for that but you guys should pls stop sending me such message.

  7. Are you saying that without the free incoming call minutes from MTN, when someone calls me from Abroad, MTN will charge me that is being called for receiving call from overseas. If this is correct then it’s a discouragement for someone to receive normal call from Abroad. I go kukuma dey use WhatsApp or Facebook calls

  8. So, uhm, they believe receiving calls from abroad means you are a G boy so they charge us. Lol. These Telecommunication networks have turn to SARS.

  9. Why would I be charged for receiving a call in the first place when I’m not the one calling??? Shouldn’t it be the caller that bears the cost and since I have free incoming minutes, the caller shouldn’t be charged until the free incoming minutes has been exhausted..

  10. Why give me 300 incoming minutes when from my call data, nobody has called me from overseas for the past 2 years. Can it be converted to internet data for me? Or the policy is cast in stone.

  11. If I don’t have some one from abroad how can I get to use them it’s of no use because I can’t even call someone, instead of giving us incoming minutes they give us data bonus for our recharge

  12. They are telling me that I am qualified to receive free calls in my next trip abroad. Does it mean that I can’t receive free call from someone abroad,based on my 300 bonus?

  13. Why would receiving calls be able to tamper with my main balance in the first place when I’m not the one calling? It doesn’t make sense. It should be free airtime to call loved ones abroad.

  14. Admin you haven’t explain to my best understanding, I have 300 free income minutes, I am eligible, but how do I use my free incoming minutes, is it that when my love ones call me from abroad they are not charge for calls on till my free incoming minutes of 300 exusted? Or how do I send it that what I want to understand here, less it becomes of no use to me.

    • Hello Moses,

      “Incoming minutes” means you receiving a call. Yes, It applies when a number from abroad calls you, you will get no charges for the duration of minutes you have.

    • Not all calls from abroad but selected 15 countries with the line providers over there.
      You can check mtn website to know the roaming network abroad or countries.

      If non of these network and countries call you, then they will be charged.

  15. What do I gain by incoming calls?. If I don’t have someone to call me from abroad then is all wasted. Is of no use to me if you give me something I can use. Thanks

  16. The question; How do i use MtN free incoming minutes? As not been properly explained here. Is there a code i have to enter before pickin up a call from an eligible destination ao my main airtime isnt tempered with Or what?
