MTN XtraByte is a service that allows eligible customers borrow data on credit when they run out of data while browsing and pay back on their next recharge.
I see this as a welcome idea knowing that similar service was launched by MTN some years but was only for airtime (call cards) so giving its subscribers the option to borrow data is a good innovation because many people now prefer to have data on their Smartphones than having call airtime. Am one of those that prefer data to airtime. I don’t know about you.
Interesting thing about this offer is that you can borrow airtime through MTN XtraTime, also borrow “data through XtraByte” as long as you are eligible for the services. So both voice and data options are there for you.
To be eligible to borrow megabyte (Data) with MTN XtraByte, you must fulfil these criteria below

IMPORTANT THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT MTN XTRABYTE DATA
1. You can borrow data once you are eligible even if you have an existing airtime loan that you are yet to pay back and can and also borrow airtime once you are eligible even if you have an existing data loan that you are yet to pay back as long as you are within your credit limit.

3. To pay back the borrowed data, MTN will deduct your airtime when next you recharge on that line (equivalent to the price for the borrowed data bundle) it can also be deducted via Share N Sell or any other means
For instance, if a customer owing N110XtraByte does a recharge of N400, the N110 owed is first deducted from the recharge, then N290 will be loaded into the customer’s main account.
4. You are allowed to borrow XtraByte data as many times as possible as long as you has no outstanding XtraByte payment and is eligible for the service.
However, you have to pay up all outstanding XtraByte data to be eligible to use the service again.
