Same for me, seems if you are on a business contract, these deals do not apply.
I have 1 Business contract. MTN champion said I must wait till Friday cos they still deciding on giving Business renewals the same as consumer retention renewals.
But from my last experience, actually took me the entire morning to get through to a champion on that Black Friday.

R 79 - 10.5GB Anytime Data, 500MB Night, 150 Min, 50 SMS’s
R 99 - 21GB's Anytime Data, 50 Min, 50 SMS's
R199 - 51GB Anytime Data, 50 Min, 50 SMS's

Are the data portion from these deals shareable to other sims?

I was told the non promo data only is shareable. Mpho at retentions said mtn is tightening the sharing rules .

As far as data and minutes carry over is concerned, data has 1 month while minutes are 2 months. I think it use to be longer on both with our old contracts.

Just got off the phone with MTN retention agent.

R 79 - 10.5GB Anytime Data, 500MB Night, 150 Min, 50 SMS’s
500MB can be data shared, 10GB promotional data, not sharable.

R 99 - 21GB's Anytime Data, 50 Min, 50 SMS's
1GB can be data shared, 20GB promotional data, not sharable.

R199 - 51GB Anytime Data, 50 Min, 50 SMS's
1GB can be data shared, 50GB promotional data, not sharable.

R199 - 15.5GB Anytime Data, 100 Min Product Code: CT 00004 BF
500MB can be data shared, 15GB promotional data, not sharable.

Would really love a Black Friday deal with talk time built-in and data that can be shared, but unfortunately MTN will not allow such a sweet deal...

Eventually went with the R199 80GB Anytime/80GB Night deal for 36 months contract, where 40GB can be data shared, I'm content.

Just keep in mind a yuuuge bonus with the Bf data deals is they are not fixed, you can roam anywhere with them and use datashare, the MTN at home deals as far as I know only work in one location, ie at home.

Stay on farm, MTN best network around. Need for house internet

I was at a mtn store today, a very big store, but only 2 agents, the rest work from home. For some of the specials, they need to look up on there emails, as of this lock down and bf thing. The one where the mifi router is involve, the sim and mifi is locked to each other and network locked. There is a anytime contract type of thing, I think R299 x 24 months = 100 gig data, that one is only from online,

The question might have been asked before. Can data be shared on the 1TB data deal and if so how much? Can the data be shared with a prepaid number ?

Also, can anyone confirm how much can be data shared on R499 deal. There seems to be various amounts being stated
I was told 400GB. I got the deal but on my breakdown of bundles, data share is showing on the data I had left from the previous contract. I guess I will have to wait till 12 December to see properly.

I ordered it via online today as an additional line. When you say network locked you mean you can’t put another sim in it? Stupid question but it’s not location locked so I can use it wherever I go?

So I got 2018's BF special and my contract was set to end next year this time (Nov 2021).

I spoke to a retention agent via 135 for an upgrade, was told it wouldn't cost anything to upgrade although my contract was still active since I had a SIM only deal. Upgraded to the R499 unlimited minutes + 65gb data today.

Deal Structure:
MTN Made for Me XS

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...

SUPPORT/ CONTACT
083 135 Call center -> Retentions


Not 100% verified, just sharing, good luck.
I phoned 135 and upgraded 2 2016 / 2018 BF deals to the 149.00 36 month ones. I was told there is a 1 month cancellation penalty with these deals. I can live with that

network lock= router only work on mtn, etc.
router lock= only this sim will work on this router
tower lock= work only on a tower.
I wish I could answer you on your question. Maybe someone else could help you.
