MTN Prepaid System

With MTN's Pay as you Go, you buy your airtime for outgoing calls and access to the network in advance.

Depending on the kind of cellphone user you are, you choose Pay as you Go cards to suit you:

  • If you make more calls than you receive, buy a Call-a-lot card
  • If you receive more calls than you make, buy a Receive-a-lot card

Getting connected to Pay as you Go

If you already have a cellphone:
Buy a MTN Better Connection SIM Pack at R55. This pack contains a SIM card (your MTN Network connection), an easy to read User Guide, and a R10 Bonus Card. The Bonus Card gives you free calls worth R10 and five days free access to the MTN Network. Just top up with more Pay as you Go cards to keep connected.

If you need a cellphone:
Buy a Pay as you Go Cellphone Kit. This kit contains a cellphone (various models to select from) with SIM card, battery and charger, an easy to read User Guide, as well as a R10 Bonus Card. The Bonus Card gives you free calls worth R10 and five days free access. Just top up with more Pay as you Go cards to keep connected.
