For those who would want to know how to share data on the MTN network, here is the easiest procedures to accomplish this task within a minute or less.

To share MTN data, you need to know that there are rules and regulations. The very first thing I must point out to you is that it’s NOT all MTN data bundles you can share.

For you to successfully share MTN Data, you need to specifically select from a list of MTN Data share bundle plans.

Another important piece of information is that you can ONLY share MTN data with users from the same network.

How To Share Data On MTN.

The first step is very important. Before you’ll be able to transfer data, you first need to register for MTN Data Share. To register, dial *131*2*1# or text REG to 131. you will receive a unique security PIN, which is automatically generated by the MTN system.

Security-wise, I highly recommend you change this pin. You need to change this pin to a pin ONLY you know.

You are expected to change the system-generated PIN to a new PIN, which you can easily remember by dialling*131*2*5# or by texting Change OLD PIN NEW PIN NEW PIN to 131.

Here is what I mean. Change 0000 1234 1234 to 131. Where 0000 is your old PIN and 1234 is your new PIN. You can select any four numbers of your choice, and in the place of 1234, put the number there.

After changing the PIN, you are required to add beneficiaries to your MTN-shared Data Bundle account, and this can be achieved through the USSD menu.

To access this menu, simply dial *131*2*2# or text Add <MSISDN> <PIN> to 131.

IMPORTANT: Please take note that you can add up to 5 beneficiaries. Meaning that 5 phone numbers are the maximum you can share your data with.

Once you have added beneficiaries to your MTN sim card which has the data, will be able to share your available data bundle among the added beneficiaries by sending this message.

Share <PIN> to 131 or simply dial USSD code *131*2*3#.
