Data Sharing has been re-enabled on MTN which means that as an MTN subscriber you can now send data from your data balance to your friends and family. Before now this particular feature was deactivated by MTN for unknown and undisclosed reasons but they’ve reintroduced the wonderful feature which means if your friend has data he or she can easily share to you by just doing simple things or following simple instructions;
>> First of all you need to have a data bundle on your phone or your friend needs to be subscribed to a data bundle before embarking on the data gifting/sharing mission.

>> Simply dial , then reply with .
>> You’ll get a list of options to choose from. You can transfer data from your data balance, buy for a friend, or even request data from a friend.
>> Kindly choose the option you want to go for and proceed which the desired code and proceed to choosing the amount of MB you wanna send
>> Enter the friend’s number if you are trying to send while you enter your number if you are the receiver and must be on the senders device.
Then you finalise the transfer, the wonderful thing about this new data sharing is that it doesn’t require you set up a pin(in a way is good in another way it’s really terrible) and you can’t transfer more than 2times which is a security measure to prevent Unauthorized transfer of data. That’s all you need to rock and share your unlimited or huge data plan with your friend. With these steps you can easily transfer data to your friends and family.
As a Warning though, if you have a friend that you don’t trust so much please avoid giving him or her your phone easily to avoid losing all your data. I believe it was because of data theft that made MTN deactivate this feature in first place, be warned!
