MTN, the first GSM NETWORK in Nigeria has been in operation for over a decade, during that period we have experienced a lot of massive changes.
Most people would no doubt know the old way of recharging their MTN number, I will be showing you another method to load your MTN card.
Not that the old way to load a MTN card has been discontinued. MTN has not been one that shied away from improvement. A lot of them have to do with adjustment made to their products and sometimes, a new way of performing some basic MTN stuff.
