In my previous post we talked about how to borrow and check your mtn xtratime balance but today we’re going to be looking at mtn borrowed data balance.

Have you run out of data before? Have you ever stayed throughout a day without accessing the internet? How was the experience? Definitely boring right? Internet freaks like me can’t even imagine staying throughout a day, not to talk of weeks without data, we would go any length to make sure we get our hands on data lol.

Back then it was not really easy especially when you’re dead broke and have no cash on you to buy data, you’ll just keep staring at your phone at that point it becomes totally useless to you.

Well all thanks to mtn that’s all in the past now, since the introduction of the mtn xtrabyte you don’t need to worry about running out of data again, you’ll always have access to the internet even when you’re low on cash until you get cash to subscribe.

Before going to our main topic let’s give a quick summary on mtn xtrabyte and how to borrow data for those that are still new to it.

How to borrow mtn data

Mtn is the largest telecom network service in Nigeria with over 60 million subscribers. They have over the years provided lots of amazing offers and services that have made them stand out and always ahead of their competitors and at the same time satisfy and make life easier for their customers.

They first introduced the mtn xtratime, a service that allows you to borrow airtime whenever you run low on airtime and then pay back later. Now to make life much easier and satisfying, they now introduced the mtn xtrabyte.

This is a service which allows you to borrow data from mtn and then pay back later using your airtime in your next recharge. This simply means you can have data even when you don’t have airtime at that moment to buy and then pay back later.

If you don’t have data and airtime and you would like to borrow just dial *606#, select 2 ( Borrow Data) and then select any data option displayed to you depending on the one you want. The data options displayed to you depend on how often you buy data from mtn.

If you are a regular data subscriber, you’ll be eligible for more and higher data options. All the data options that’ll be displayed to you have their price tag besides each of them, that’s the airtime cost of each data and anyone one that you borrow the airtime will be deducted from your airtime in your next recharge.

You can borrow as many times as you want until you reach your limit, once you reach your limit you won’t be able to borrow again until you pay your outstanding data debt.

That’s how to borrow data from mtn, if you have borrowed data from mtn and want to know your remaining xtrabyte balance now follow through to our main topic below which is how to check mtn borrowed data balance to find out how.

If you have used some of your mtn xtrabyte and want to check the balance and know how many you have remaining just dial *606#, select 2 (My Account), select 2 (Account Balance) and your xtrabyte balance will be displayed to you instantly.

Note: Once you reach your xtrabyte limit, you won’t be able to borrow again until you recharge and pay for the one you already owe with your airtime in your next recharge.

This is a really good development coming from mtn, it’ll help save you in urgent situations where you really need to access the internet but low on cash, with mtn xtrabyte you can borrow some data and pay with your airtime later when you recharge.
