Good news! Do you know that your MTN SIM card can now be upgraded to use the fastest 4G LTE service in the country? MTN 4G LTE service is now available in almost all states in Nigeria following the acquisition of VISAFONE by MTN prior 2016.



MTN now has special 4G data plans available for Nigerians while some of the users are already enjoying it. You too can also be part of MTN 4G evolution by upgrading your current MTN SIM card or by just getting a new SIM card at the nearest MTN service outlet. You must be using a compatible 4G phone before trying to upgrade your SIM card for 4G LTE service.

STEP 1:

How to check if your phone is compatible with MTN 4G Service?

In other to make things SIMple, MTN Nigeria has provided a short message code that can be useful when not sure that your phone is 4G ready for the MTN LTE service. All you have to do is:
  • Text 4G to 131.
If the device is compatible with 4G, you will then receive a message that says:
Yello! Your device is 4G ready, but you need to upgrade your SIM to enjoy MTN 4G LTE. Please visit the nearest MTN store or partner retailer for a SIM swap now.
BUT,
If the device is not compatible to use the service, you will receive a message that says…
Yello! You need to upgrade your SIM card and device to enjoy MTN 4G LTE. Please visit the nearest MTN store or partner retailer to upgrade now.

Your phone must be a 4G enabled one. If not, do not bother proceeding to the next step.

STEP 2:

How to get MTN 4G LTE SIM card?

Welcome to step 2 of this article.
By now, you must have known that your device is capable of using 4G network.
  • Kindly visit any nearest MTN service centre to request for an MTN 4G SIM Card

REQUIREMENTS:

  • A valid ID card (Student or NIMC temporary card will also work)
You will be given a little form to fill. It contains details like Name, Mother’s Maiden name, address, the number of the SIM you want to upgrade, last six frequently dialled phone numbers, current tariff plan, Date of Birth, and last two amount recharged.
I was lucky because I went early enough. So the whole thing took me about 15-20 minutes.
  • Dial *559*444# to get your free 4GB data.
ALSO
  • Dial *131*4# to get 5GB data. You can check your data balance by dialling *559*62#.

MTN 4G Data Plans For January 2017 and How to Subscribe

If you have confirmed your phone is 4G enabled to use MTN 4G network and have finally gotten yourself a 4G SIM card, then dial *444# to check and select any MTN 4G data plan of your choice. Below are some of the data plans with prices.

Gionee P7 with 2GB RAM and 4G VoLTE launched in India: Specs & Price

Gionee P7 with 2GB RAM and 4G VoLTE launched in India: Specs & Price

The normal thing when smartphones in a series are to be launched is for the standard variant to be launched first, and then subsequent variants with suffixes like ‘Plus’, ‘Lite’, ‘Max’, etc added to their names launched afterwards. In the case of the Gionee P7 and Gionee P7 Max, however, things are different. The Gionee P7 Max was launched in September without a previous standard version, and the Gionee P7 has just been launched in India.

The Gionee P7 is a lower version of the Gionee P7 Max and comes with watered-down specs and an equally lower price tag. Both are, however, designed similarly.

Xiaomi Mi 5c Full Specifications Revealed: 3GB RAM & 2.2GHz Xiaomi Processor

For the past few weeks, we’ve been getting leaks of a particular Xiaomi smartphone with the codename Meri. Now live images of the smartphone with the display on have surfaced, and a recent Geekbench listing reveals the name of the device to be Xiaomi Mi 5c as well as details about its software and processor.
What makes the Xiaomi Mi 5c spectacular is that it comes with Xiaomi’s own processor called the Xiaomi Pine core processor. Other big Android OEMs like Samsung (Exynos) and Huawei (Kirin) now use their own processors in their smartphones, so it’s about time Xiaomi followed the trend.
