You can not.

These deals are locked to a specific list of routers and locked to 4G only and can not make calls. This is for the Black Friday Home packages. Not sure the others.
Yeah the data deal is ''home''. Those are the only ones that are fixed internet like with everyone else.Esim isnt too hard to get done, not sure on the device support, apple is popular I don't see having major issues with regards to esim support.

I screenshotted the wrong deal the carrosel switched as I screenshot.

Assuming I meant the normal deal, the bigger part of my question is, can I get that on a esim only (in order to use it on my apple watch?)

I go through MTN Business and have been offered 2 deals:

330GB (150GB+180GB[Promo]) + 110GB Night Express @ R279pm x 24

450GB (250GB + 200GB[Promo]) + 110GB Night Express @ R329pm x24

I think I will go for the 450GB, of which 150GB is shareable.

I was offered only this @ Retentions for my Business line:

25GB + 4GB YouTube + 220mins ALL NET @ R349 24 months

18GB + 4GB YouTube + 50 + 50mins @ R299 x 24 months

Yes, that is all there is @ Retentions. Unbelievable!

I might settle for the 15GB + 500mins ALL NET @ R149 x 36months

I was on prepaid but have other numbers on contract for business.

They told me it's a 50/50 chance of it getting past vetting as the number was not on contract and therefore retentions deal won't apply.

Told the consultant to try it anyway as I have nothing to lose.

Got approved and took 3 more, which also got approved

500 all net minutes / 500 sms's / 15GB data - R149

Thanks. Can you take it up as a normal client? Which number did you call?

Not sure.
I only speak to MTN Business.

I am happy with 450GB @ R349

last year i was trying to get onto the 500GB @ R499, but couldn't as i was not a client at the time.

Is there any carry-over of unused minutes and data on this package?

At this point, it seems safer to go prepaid.
R129 for 600 minutes and just data share from another data sim

don't know about safer - it's sim only and MTN allow you to cancel easily

(30 days notice, no penalty)

Does anybody know if the prepaid "Black Friday Double Your Data" data bundles (18Nov - 2 Dec) can be shared?
