My BF deal was ending in Jan. Went and took the new offer of R350 for 41 gigs + 100 min.

Popped into my local MTN shop yesterday and all the BF deals are still being offered (old BF customers only).

Now using DataShare across 7 SIM cards. So incredibly handy. Even if you ask an MTN sales person to activate your prepaid SIM, be sure to do it yourself...DataShare will not activate until your number has been issued and a price plan confirmed (both SMS).
So whats the process for data share

do you buy a sim and then ?

You a buy a prepaid SIM at MTN for R3.50 and then activate it in a feature phone (or smart phone I guess). The SIM will not activate in a router and must be switched on in a phone. (Note that MTN did this for me last week and somehow it failed...had to activate myself anyway)

You’ll get confirmation of your number and your price plan. At this point, the SIM is activated. Before this, DataShare will give you an error.

Use the MyMTN app, navigate to DataShare and add your newly activated number. You’ll get an SMS to the new number that DataShare was successful.

What did the 199 deal consist of?
Also is this new deal with 650mins any network mins?
If you look at the screenshots shared of the deal you'd notice 150min anytime, and 500 bonus minutes, ie mtn2mtn is the 500mins

The deal they had on black friday had the 500 min as any network. I get a total of 650 min to any network. I think this one wont be any different

So is that deal only for people who didn't take a new black Friday deal on black Friday weekend?
Or can you only get it if you got the email

Dual calling can be taken out with the above package but apparently only the 150min and the 1gb are shareable.
