  1. 2442 Its not working. The impression is that bulk of the unsolicited text messages come from anonymous bulk SMS providers that's false. This is because you activate DND you still get loads of junk messages from strange numbers starting with 5*** Best is to activate True Messager App on Android phones its a product of True Caller app coy. Then You get some peace. DND also helps you block all reasonable text messages that could be an info alert on your phone but does no Block MTN

  2. Yes! I still get few disturbing unwanted unsolicited SMS from MTN even when I have fully stop all sms from them, But the fact remains that the number of unwanted sms has greatly been reduced.

  3. The truth is that whilst there are many value added services out there, there are only a handful of those that offers truly genuine contents and guarantee maximum value for money.

    These services are;

    MTN Music+
    MTN Game+
    MTN CallerTunez
    MTN CallerFeel
    MTN MBlog
    and also MTN Comedy+ and Mobile Newspaper Service

    Now here's the bit you may not actually know about these services. They are easily the most structured service on the MTN network and also they are 100% compliant with all NCC and other consumer protection body rules and regulation.

    These services account for less than 10% of all VAS related complaints on the MTN network, reason being that they not just only focus on providing wonderful services (which I am actually subscribed to some and enjoying it), they also care about user complaints and try to minimize it constantly.

    Now how do they go about satisfying customers both with the best contents and care.
    1) They ensure that all their contents are gotten from the best possible sources, make some exclusive, and also ensure that they are what is in trend.

    2)They provide incentives to users on a regular basis, such as free air-times, data, and physical gifts from promos carried out periodically. (And yes, I have actually benefited from such severally).

    3) They review their price plans and try to come up with flexible subscription packages that will appeal to different categories of users.

    I have been a partaker of these sevices and will be lining out the benefits of each one of the in 5 different posts (starting with Music+ on this post).

    The MTN MUSIC+ service is easily the next best thing after shazam (locally, that is). It contains the largest database of music from all genres exclusively from local artists. Name any artist in the country (Yes, even the top shots) and I can assure you that they have exclusivity with MTN Music+.

    Now not only does this service offer you the chance to stream songs (you can even stream for 30 seconds free if you are not subscribed) you can also instantly download (high quality versions) the song to your device. Even more interesting is the fact that the mobile app has been optimized to integrate with your phone and serve as a very high quality music player for songs stored on your device.

    Users can stream offline, purchase, download, and share their favorite music and send the music as gifts to their friends and loved ones. When users subscribe to any of the Music Plans, they can get FREE data bundle and stream unlimited music, they also can enjoy the Pricing discounts available for HD Full Track purchase.

    Also, there are free data and unlimited streaming of the latest naija songs for each plan. See below some of these price plans

    Plan Name Price Priviledge
    3 Days Plan N100/3Days Free 30MB & Unlimited Streaming
    7 Days Plan N300/7Days Free 150MB & Unlimited Streaming
    30 Days Plan N600/30Days Free 300MB & Unlimited Streaming
    7 Days Download Plan N100/7Days Free 8MB, 2HD Tracks & Unlimited Pre-listening

    (To subscribe to the plans above simply send the any of the codes 3a,7a,30a,w respectively to 5900)

    Users can stream, offline, purchase, download, and share their favorite music and send the music as gifts to their friends and loved ones.
    – When users subscribe to any of the Music Plans, they can get FREE data bundle and stream unlimited music, they also can enjoy the Pricing discounts available for HD Full Track purchase.

    Basically, you get to kill many birds with one stone just be subscribing to any of the package plans. That is not to mention that you also get to hear hit songs from some Top artists first on the Music+ platform even before it hits the popular music websites you know.

    This service is a great great great service and one that will appeal to nearly everyone, no matter your age or taste of music. So long as its Naija I can assure you that the Music+ service will satisfy you.

    Yes you can ask me any question regarding any of the services and I will be happy to assist you.
