MTN BetaTalk is one of the sweetest prepaid plans on not just MTN, but among other networks in Nigeria. In this guide you’ll discover the migration code to MTN BetaTalk, how to check your bonus balance, and how to opt-out or unsubscribe from the plan.
We previously shared a guide that explained all the prepaid plans MTN has for its Nigerian customers; and in that guide we featured BetaTalk.
Every plan comes with its perks, upsides and downsides; and obviously the BetaTalk plan was create for people looking to get more recharge value on calls.
Immediately the tariff was launched, it quickly gained widespread recognition among MTN customers nationwide. At a point, it was claimed that around 60% of subscribers preferred it to other plans.
Right now, however, Pulse seems to be gaining more popularity than any other prepaid plan on the network. Notwithstanding, BetaTalk still remains one of the best, and one in which a lot of people still wish to migrate to.
How MTN BetaTalk Works:
BetaTalk rewards all of its subscribers with 250% bonus airtime on every recharge of ₦100 and above. In other words, if you recharge ₦100 you’ll get ₦250 as bonus, making a total of ₦350.
One good thing about this tariff is that it doesn’t charge an insane call rate because of the huge bonuses it offers… Unlike some networks that charge heavily after gifting their customers with heavy bonuses.
Calls to all networks within Nigeria will be charged at the rate of ₦25.20/minute (42k/sec) from your main account and ₦27/minute (45k/sec) if you have money in your bonus account. Your bonuses will always be charged first. Your main account will not get charged in as much as you have money in your bonus account.
However, calls made to international destinations will be charged at the normal international destination call rates.
SMS to all networks in Nigeria is charged at N4 per 160 characters.
