Here’s a format to enter for <DATASIZE>
To know the correct “Datasize” code you need to send, here’s an example shared below. When sending a data size, you need to ensure you don’t add the MB and GB, for example:
1. If you want to share 250MB with a beneficiary, the datasize code is just: 250
2. 500MB → 500
3. 750MB → 750
4. 1GB → 1000.
Take note that you are ONLY allowed to share data in multiples of 250MB, 500MB, 750MB or 1GB. Sharing data in multiples of any other data sizes are not allowed in the MTN Network.
For example, if you decide to share a datasize of 250MB of data with beneficiary using this phone number, 08031234567 and MTN PIN ‘1234’, your message should go like this, which you’re to send in an SMS to 131 (or Dial *461# and follow the prompt);
SMESHARE 08031234567 250 1234 = Correct Format!
SMESHARE 08031234567 200 1234 = Wrong Format → This is because you can’t share data of 200MB.
