I also learnt they got Freebies for Pulse Users every Fridays

To MTN numbers costs you 5 naira per SMS
To other networks is 10 naira and
to International networks costs just 15 naira per SMS

To Activate MTN Pulse dial *406# or SMS 406 to 131

I think MTN Pulse is cool for those that like browsing on phones without making much Calls, I had used it once, but then I only enjoyed the browsing part of it, but then I had to move as the Rates was a bit not very nice., I wasn't making much calls except to my very close relative, besides, you have to wait a whole week( 7days) before I get my 10 MB data bundle free.


And finally, MTN family and Friends, also known as F&F is for those who spend more time calling their Family, loved ones, and close friends, this tariff is rather getting old, so just incase you forgot, his is a remonder that it still exists and Still Rocks, I am even using it as at the moment I shared this post.

Call 10 Family and Friends number               at 10 kobo per second
Calls to other MTN numbers                        25 kobo per second
Midnight Calls (12:30am to 4:30pm)             FREE
Calls to other networks in Nigeria                 30 kobo per second
You get 5MB Data Bundle Free at Recharging a 100naira Weekly, Pretty cool right?

Extra Tip: 
To Add Family and Friends number Dial *560* 1* the phone number#
To Remove a number from F&F dial  *560* 2 * the phone number# 

If you like the MTN F&F Plan, To Activate Dial *407# or SMS 407 to 131.

I hope this helped you reduce cost money you used to spend on recharges. Kindly take a second, show some love by Sharing with friends
