Data Rollover:

Do you know the meaning of data rollover?
It means that you can just transfer all your internet data to the next month subscription.
All you have to do is to make sure that you auto-renew your data subscription before it expires, this is the only way to guarantee that all your unused data is automatically moved to the next month plan for you.
This means that you have to subscribe for the next month too before it can be a rollover.
Please note that data rollover feature is only applicable to monthly plans.

How To Send Data as a Gift Plan To Your Love Ones:
