MTN Pulse is one of the best tariff plans for making cheaper calls and getting a lot of petty data for surfing the internet.

Technically, I would say is in the middle of data and little bit shifted to calls.


PULSE allows you to call all networks in Nigeria, including Glo, 9mobile, Airtel, and the network itself at a FLAT rate of 11kobo per second.

Isn’t that awesome? But there is a catch!

Before you can start making calls at 11kobo per second, you will first be charged 25kobo per second for the first 50 seconds call you make for the day.

That actually means, you will spend N12.50 daily before you can make calls at 11kb/sec.

Is still awesome yet because there are more goodies the tariff plan offers to their customers.


Like the newly special Instabinge bundles on the tariff plan that gives 250MB for N100 and the heavy bundle of 1GB for N200.

What turn me off from this Instabinge bundles are the validity period. Their data valid for 24 hours which is not cool for people like me. Meanwhile, if you decide to cut the lost, you can opt unto it and surf your Instagram app with style.

To subscribe to MTN Pulse Instabinge bundles, simply send RINSTD1 to 131 for the 250MB for N100, or send RINSTD2 for the heavyweight bundle of N200 for 1GB data.

After purchase, you can check your Instabinge bundles with *559*39# and start to surf with it.

Not only that, there are more friendly plans on the network…


If you are type of person that loves exclusive hit jamz and unlimited streaming, you can subscribe for MTN PULSE MUSIC+ plan for just N10 daily.

Oh! That’s cheap, you know.

To subscribe, send M to 5900 and the subscription fee of N10 will be deducted for the day. You can decides to keep subscribing to the weekly plan or monthly plan of music+ or to keep renewing at the price of N10 per day to enjoy the service.

Not only that, if you need real data to surf the internet at an affordable rate, kindly move to my next list of benefits that MTN Pulse has to offer.


This plan formerly gives 1GB data bundle at the price of N500 but it has been reduced due to customer’s massive usage.

Lolzz, instead of them to make it zap, they reduced it in order not to literally cost them much.

But the new way is also cool.

When you subscribe for MTN PULSE weekly plan of 500MB for the price of N500 only. You would be given 500MB real data and 500MB 100% bonus data. It valid for 7 days.

To subscribe, send 103 to 131 or *406*2# and you will be able to check your bundle balance by sending 2 to 131 or by dialing *131*4# and your bonus balance by dialing *559*63#.

That’s the real data you will enjoy on MTN PULSE tariff plan. Moreover, there is also night bundle plans, let’s move on to it.


In my hood, we call this, “invigilate” data plans. Lolzz 😁😁.

Because you have to stay awake in the night and enjoy all these data bundles but there are advantages and disadvantages of surfing in the night.

☺ You will enjoy good internet connection because there is no more crowd on the network coverage. No more congestion.

😬 While the disadvantage is that you will drain and be weak in the morning because of lack of good sleep. You may not be able to carry out your daily duties.

Nevertheless, the data plans are cheap enough to cut off the night for.

Without further ado, the Nightlife bundles can be activated by dialling *406# and selecting “Nightlife bundles” from the option, or alternatively, you can send:

1. Send NT1 to 131 for 250MB Pulse Nightlife bundle for N25.
2. Send NT2 to 131 for 500MB Pulse Nightlife bundle for N50.

If you are thinking of subscribing multiple times, YES! you can do it but it must not exceed 500MB.

The 500MB nightlife bundle can be activated once, while the 250MB bundle can be activated twice because 250MB + 250MB = 500MB.

The Nightlife bundles valid from 12am to 5am in night. And also, note that you can not rollover the bundles because all ununsed data will be cleared by 5am in the morning.

Not only Nightlife bundles, you can also surf other social media and online stuffs with MTN PULSE Goodybag plans. Let’s go!


Almost everyone are on social media because technology keeps advancing in daily basis. MTN PULSE has come to bring more light to it with their GOODYBAG plans.

Facebook, WhatsApp, Twitter, 2GO, Wechat, Eskimi and many other social media now has their subscription bundles with MTN. It will be easy to get their bundle for the internet.

The bundles are made of three validity periods: Daily, Weekly And Monthly at a fixed price of N25, N50 and N100 respectively.

You only have to dial *406# and select option 5 to see the list of GOODYBAG social media networks. Select the best one and proceed to subscribe. Or simply dial *131*3# and proceed to subscribe.


FREE DATA: When you recharge N100 to N200 in a week, you get 10MB to 20MB respectively on the tariff plan. This data can be used browse and surf the internet.

If is small, you can decide to go for an official data plan or the PULSE Weekly 500MB data bundle.


According to MTN official website;

To enjoy discounted rates on your MTN-to-MTN calls and calls to other networks:

1. Text 406 to 131 or dial *406*1# and migrate to MTN Pulse tariff plan.

2. As soon as you migrate into the MTN Pulse tariff plan, minutes spent on calls will be accumulated.

3. At this point, your calls to all National numbers will be charged at 25k/sec.

4. As you make the calls, your accumulated spend will continue to increase. When your accumulated spend on calls reaches ₦12.50, your calls to all national numbers will reduce to 11kobo/sec.

5. You will continue to enjoy the discounted rate – 11kobo/sec for the rest of the day till 11:59pm of that day. The next day, the same thing will happen. Your calls will be accumulated up to the defined amount ₦12.50 after which your calls will drop to 11 kobo/sec.

6. When you spend up to the pre-defined daily amount, ₦12.50 while making a call, the new rate will be charged from the point you qualify.

7. If you migrate out of MTN Pulse tariff plan to any other prepaid tariff plan without spending up to the daily fee, all your accumulated spend will be cleared.

8. If you migrate back into MTN Pulse tariff plan, the system will begin to accumulate your spend again. If you have made more than ₦12.50 worth of calls while on other tariff plan, it will NOT count towards reaching the pre-defined threshold when you migrate to MTN Pulse tariff plan.


1. MTN Nightlife bundles of 250MB and 500MB at the price of N25 and N50 respectively.

2. 11kobo per second calls on all networks in Nigeria after first daily 50 seconds charge of 25kb/sec.

3. Music+ data bundles of N10 per day.

5. PULSE Instabinge bundles of 250MB for N100 and N200 for heavyweight plan of 1GB.

6. Free 10mb and 20mb for the first recharge of N100 and N200 in a week.

7. 500MB weekly plan for N500 that valid for a week on MTN PULSE tariff plan + 100% double data.


The Pulse TARIFF Plan from MTN is specially designed to fit your personal lifestyle where you can enjoy FLAT rate of 11kobo/sec to all networks in Nigeria.

Naturally, I don’t think PULSE is good for international calls and I would recommend XtraSpecial tariff plan for that. Moreover, Pulse can help you get value for your money on MTN 2 MTN calls and other networks in Nigeria.

I hope I have been able to review the MTN PULSE tariff plan to your own satisfaction, if you have any more questions to ask, kindly drop it below. Thanks.
