  1. So they don’t charge for sharing data because they know that people don’t use that service much but they charge you for sharing common airtime what a world.??

  2. Tried that of MTN sometime ago and it didn’t work. Made enquiries from CC, and they said only data gifting is possible. Will try it again and see how it goes.

  3. seems like the mtn own is sorta new. cause I remember contacting them some. months ago and they told me it wasn’t possible, hm. not bad though.

  4. Everyone thanking prof for making this old post that no longer work on MTN. why don’t you test something before calling it UPDATED. worst post of the year
