How to Check MTN Data Balance Offline and Online

MTN Data Balance

MTN Data Balance – Just like other telecom network providers, you can check data balance on your phones and other device either through SMS, online or via USSD. Yes, there are different ways you can use in checking your data balance with this network. 

Let me give you the up to date information on how to check your data balance on MTN and would be beneficial for Both Old and New MTN subscribers who do not know how to check data balance. The MTN USSD code is one effective way of checking data balance. 

Below are the Methods of checking data balance on MTN. 

How to Check MTN Data Balance via SMS 

Checking data balance on MTN can be done via SMS. This can be done by sending 2 to 131 or 403 to 131

A text message will be sent to you, and this message contains all the information you need to know about your current MTN internet subscription. There you will get information on remaining data balance, data bonus, and expiry date

How to Check Data Balance via USSD Code

You can also check your MTN data balance via USSD, and this requires you to dial *559#. After completing the task, a message will pop-up, showing your data balance. 

Via Email or Calling Customer Care Number

  • Another method is by email or calling MTN operators. The use of the MTN USSD code is more reliable than calling MTN operators. You can check your data balance 24 hours of the day and 7 days a week while the operator has a working time limit.
     
  • You can also check data balance using internet chat, and the internet chat also has limited working hours. The internet chat works in the hours of 8 am to 5 pm on weekdays, and 8 am to 1 pm on Saturdays.

Here are other uses of MY MTN App:

  • Activate and subscribe to data plans
  • Check data balance
  • Buy Bundle with your Debit Card.
  • Buy Data bundle for a Third party.
  • View Data Usage per traffic type (Facebook, YouTube etc.)

I hope the basic steps I have provided will also help the numerous MTN subscribers to choose from the many offers, the most affordable tariff plan. 

I can assure even an elderly person using the MTN line in the village that the codes for checking credit balance provided in this guide are as simple as they appear. 

How to manage your MTN DATA offline and online

Limit the amount of time spent on streaming apps.

Streaming apps can consume a significant amount of data on your device.
If you are utilizing an app that streams movies, songs, or even just big pictures, your data usage will skyrocket.

Spotify, YouTube, or any other heavy-data apps should be used on a pc rather than your Android smartphone. You should also only access these apps while connected to a secure Wi-Fi network.

Limit the amount of data you use for specific apps.

Reducing data consumption for selected apps might also help you conserve data subscriptions over time. This requires turning off the feature that lets an app use data while it’s active in the background of your smartphone, even when you’re not using it.

Select “Apps” in the App settings on your Android smartphone.

Select the app for which you wish to set data limits.

Select “Mobile data.”

To check if background data usage is enabled, look for a white and blue slider next to “Allow background data usage.”

To deactivate this option and save data, move the slider to the left until it is simply white.

Set a cellular restriction on your Android phone or tablet.

If you want to take things a step further, you can establish a limit on how much data your Android device can consume. This can be done in the Settings section of your smartphone.

1. Go to the Settings app on your Android smartphone.

2. Select “Connections”.

3. Select “Data use”.

4. Select “Mobile data usage”.

5. On the topmost edge of the screen, select the gear logo.

You can then configure a data notification to let you realize when you’re nearly out of data, or a full mobile data use limit to ensure that your device doesn’t use data after a specified amount of time until your next payment cycle.
