How do you browse without a data subscription on MTN?

We use the system called MTN PAYG which means Pay As You Go that allows you to browse with your airtime.

Yes, the service was launched by MTN to enable users to browse at the rate of 3₦ per megabyte (N3/MB).

It can't activate itself. Even though you exhaust your active data bundle, and you have airtime, all data connections will be disconnected.

You will have to opt into PAYG to power all browsers and access the internet with your airtime.

It's funny when most people rejoice to the free browsing on their phone without realizing that PAYG is activated and they browse with the money in their account balance.

Now, how do I browse without a data subscription on MTN? Follow the simple recommendations below.
