@I.am.Sam will have to answer that. I think a BF data only contract

That’s why I said just be careful since it might depend on the type of contract. You can PM me your wife’s number to test.

I just got a BF data only contract and 60GB is definitely shareable

R499 Unlimited calls + 55GB.
For clarity its actually Unlimited MTN to MTN (FUP of 3600 Min) + 500/600 All Network Min + 15 GB Anytime Data (+ 40 GB Promo Data = 55GB Anytime Data)
Product Code: CT00021BF

PRODUCT CODES:
Product codes all start with 2020991
You can change the last 2 digits and it will give you other deals as well
It seems possible that devices can be taken with these contracts
Some of the 36 month contracts have 24 month alternatives at R50pm additional, see cancellation note below
I wasn't able to tell which deals were 36 months and which were 24 please clarify before upgrading

CANCELLATION:
Any time = 1 month subscription penalty + current unbilled invoice.
So makes no sense to take the 24 month at a higher rate per month, if you can cancel in anyway when you want for the same penalty. Only difference is that you can "upgrade" earlier on the 24 month contract.

DATA SHARE:
Data share uses non promotional Data, promotional Data cannot be used for Data share, non promotional Data carries over for 2 months, promotional Data not used is forfeited at 30 days. You use promotional Data first, by default...

The issue is to what numbers is it shareable! I got caught in 2018 when the sales rep specifically said I would be able to data share with my daughter and wife on contracts and I could not. You can data share to a prepaid number and afaik, that is about it....

So this year daughter goes from contract to prepaid, wife goes R149 for 550 minutes and 15.5gb anytime data and I'm sticking with a R199 data intensive package (80gb anytime, 80gb night time, 40gb anytime shareable and 40gb night time shareable)... My spend the last 2 years around R680 a month. Now R348. I'll data share to the daughters prepaid number and buy sms bundles and voice minutes when necessary.

Well now I am confused, specifically on the 500GB for R499. Shouldn't there also be 500GB night data and with 400GB shareable since it is on the MyChoice 400GB contract, so only 100GB should be promotional (and hence not shareable)

I think you’re misunderstanding what’s happening here.
These are both BF contracts.
One is a MyChoice and one is a Made For Me. The Mychoice is able to datashare to prepaid simcards but not to the Made for Me contract sim.

They've given me like 30GB somehow.
I think there's a certain amount that you can't toggle off, that's once-off and has to be used within 30 days.

Mine looks like this...

Where do you find this? Is it an MTN app? And how do you check your limit? The SMS said my limit has been set to R1080 for some dumb reason.

The MTN app has brilliant deals on bundles. I generally buy around 700 to 1200 any network minutes for around R250. Smaller bundles voice and sms also available.
I think the app presents offers based on your usage.

Just confirmed. The R299 deal is being called My MTNChoice 50 gig. With100 gig being the promo to give the 150gig. Thus i would guess only 50gig is shareable on this
