Get MTN 2GB Data For N1000, 300MB For N150 or 100MB for N100

Get MTN 2GB Data For N1000, 300MB For N150 or 100MB for N100

Hi guys, Pulse Tariff Plan seems to be the MTN Nigeria cheapest package for now to meet your internet data needs. MTN Pulse plan, formally known as (iPulse plan) is not only giving 500MB worth of data at a ridiculously low price of ₦25(Happy Hour night browsing), you can as well get 2GB data subscription for just ₦1000 usable any time of the day. You can also get 300MB For ₦150 or 100MB for ₦100.

I think this should be a better alternative to the MTN 1.5GB (all-day) for N1200 introduced few weeks back.

If you're still stuck in some worthless plan that doesn't award you with freebies and bonanzas then I'll say, it's time to Migrate to the Pulse plan on MTN. It basically gives you 100% bonus on MTN daily and weekly data plan. No extra tweaking is required.

To Activate 2GB for N1000 on MTN Follow the Step Below
  • First of all, you need to migrate to MTN Pulse, to migrate, just dial *406# (For those that are not on MTN Pulse).
  • Then, TopUp your Sim with N1000 recharge
  • Dial *406*2*1#.
Your N500 would be deducted, which will give 1GB of data, So repeat the Step 3 to complete it 2GB.
Note: This data plan is valid for 14 Days.

You will enjoy the following benefits when you are on MTN Pulse 
  • Flat rate of 11kobo/sec for calls ACROSS ALL local Networks after spending NGN11 daily.
  • Music streaming on Music+ at N10/day
  • Happy Hour night browsing at N25/day
  • 100% data bonus on purchase of 500MB
  • Data bonus on recharge
To Activate 300MB For N150 or 100MB for N100 on MTN
  • It work on MTN Pulse Plan only
  • TopUp your Sim with N100 or N200 airtime.
  • Dial *131*1*1# and the below message will display to you:
Daily Plan
1. 50MB Daily Plan; Cost 100 NGN
2. 150MB Daily Plan; Cost 200 NGN
Never mind about the displayed message. Simply choose the one suite your money.
Once you are done with the subscription, you will automatically get twice (double of the original data size) the bundle. E.g, 50MB of N100 will give you 100MB and 150MB of N200 will give you 300MB.
The plan is valid for just 24hours
Dial *131*4# to check your data balance.

Are you on MTN Pulse Tariff Plan? What is your experience so far?

Some of their services are free of charge while others require you purchasing their credits.

Features of Dingtone App

1. Free Calls & Free Texting

It's worthy of note that Dingtone offers many services. However, what made me an instant fan was their custom phone number. I have no regrets patronizing them and I have also made calls through to several users free of charge. The phone number you will receive from them will be fully functional and you can forward it to your local line. Even when you are offline, you will receive your call, SMS immediately you get back online. I have also earned some credits up to 100 free of charge by performing their promo task. Give this application a trial today at no risk at all and you will be so glad you do.

Instagram now has 1 billion users worldwide

Instagram now has 1 billion users worldwide

Instagram announced at an in-office event today that it now has 1 billion users worldwide. It had 800 million users in September of last year, which was 200 million more than that same time the year before. The app just keeps steadily adding 200 million users a year, it seems.
It’s incredible, and it’s something Mike and I never thought would happen,” co-founder Kevin Systrom said.
It’s unclear where most of these new users came from. Last year, most of the growth was attributed to the launch of Stories. Over the past year, the company’s expanded in-app creation tools by letting users add GIFs, emoji sliders, and polls to their stories. Meanwhile, Snapchat is still trying to grow its user base. It most recently averaged 191 million daily active users. Instagram also announced its new IGTV standalone app today that’ll feature long-form, vertical videos, in an attempt to compete against not only Snapchat Discover but also YouTube.

Facebook Groups may soon charge monthly subscription fees for access

Facebook Groups may soon charge monthly subscription fees for access

Facebook will now let group administrators start charging $4.99 to $29.99 a month for exclusive membership in certain groups, the company announced today in a blog post. Parenting, cooking, and home cleaning groups will be the first ones to get the new feature as part of an early test.
As it stands now, free groups will remain intact, but they will soon have the option to launch premium sub-groups. For instance, lifestyle blogger Sarah Mueller’s Declutter My Home group is starting an Organize My Home group that costs $14.99 a month to join. And the Grown and Flown Parents group is making a College Admissions group that charges $29.99 for access to college counselors.
While in the past, Facebook groups have always been free, charging for a membership might heighten the sense of exclusivity and make a group feel more special to be in. A paywall may also just drive more people away.
Facebook says the new feature is so that group admins, who put a lot of time and dedication to growing their communities, can also earn money at the same time. The company also says admins could take the money they earn to create higher-quality content for the group as well, whether that be more posts, videos, or offline meet-ups and events.
For now, the feature is still an experiment on mobile and Facebook won’t be getting a cut of the subscription fees. As part of standard App Store and Play Store policies, Apple and Google will be taking a percentage of user subscriptions fees via iOS and Android, however. Still, this is just the beginning for Facebook’s efforts to monetize groups, which, unlike the News Feed, does not rely on advertising.

Hello Football Fans, The festival of football that only happens every four years is set to kick off in a matter of days. The 21st FIFA World Cup 2018 will be kicking off in Russia on Thursday, 14 June, when the host nation, Russia takes on Saudia Arabia in a Group A match at the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow.

The tournament ends on Sunday, July 15, which is the day of the final.

I know you won't like to miss any of your favorite matches.  FIFA has promised the most extensive coverage of this world cup around the world. Over 190 networks around the world will have live coverage in different parts of the world and for the first time in history, FIFA World Cup will have extensive online streaming on rights holder websites and mobile apps.

If for some reason, you don’t have access to live TV, you don’t need to worry. We are in the age of the internet where ever TV program/show/event is available through online networks and FIFA World Cup is no different. You can access live coverage through several ways.

Below are some of the ways and devices you can use to get free live action from official sources. The main ingredient you might or might not need is a VPN account. So we take you through the whole process.

1. Official Live Streaming Feeds trough VPN:
» UK Coverage Free (Recommended) BBC and ITV have the live coverage rights in the UK and they produce the best coverage for international football events such as World Cup etc.

In the UK, ITV and BBC will not only have extensive TV coverage, but they will also show matches live through their online platforms like “ITV Player” and “BBC iPlayer”. Although access to ITV or BBC online coverage is free, but you do need a UK IP address (you have to be in the UK or need a UK IP if abroad).

So let's say you are in Nigeria and want English coverage, all you need to do is to buy a VPN (cost around $5 to $10 a month) and get a UK IP address and you are all good to accessing both BBC and ITV online platforms for absolutely free from anywhere in the world.

Best VPN Providers:
There are several high-quality VPN providers, but ExpressVPN, VyprVPN, and NordVPN are highly recommended ones which will not only get your IP address in any of the top countries like UK, US, Germany etc but also keeps you anonymous.

» US Coverage: FoxSports has the exclusive rights of FIFA World Cup in the US and they will also be providing live streaming through their official website and mobile apps. So if you are in the US you can access FoxSports online coverage through their official website/mobile app. However, people residing in countries outside the US can get a VPN account and set up US IP address to get access to “Foxsports Go” online how you might require subscription to Foxsports.

Below are some other ways and devices you can use to access free live streaming of FIFA World Cup 2018 around the world.

2. World Cup 2018 Live Streaming trough KODI via VPN:
KODI is a great streaming platform not only for the latest movies and TV shows but also for watching live sports events such as the FIFA World Cup. KODI is a free, open-source software which can be installed on any of the TV streaming boxed such as “Amazon Fire TV 3” and “Mi Box”.  You can even install KODI on Windows, Mac or mobile devices.

How It Works: If you know or already have a Kodi setup, all you need is a VPN account with one of the reputed VPN service provider costs $5 to $10 a month, get a UK or US IP and access official live streaming through BBC iPlayer, ITV player or FoxSports GO.

3. World Cup 2018 Live Streaming through Xbox/PS4 via VPN:
Both Xbox One and PS4 come with online streaming capabilities so if you are located in the UK or US all you need is to access BBC iPlayer, ITV Player or FoxSports GO through Xbox One and PS4 to get the live action. However, if you are abroad and want UK/US English coverage you can get a VPN account setup (it's a bit tricky to set up on PS4 and Xbox) but once done, you can surf internet anonymously plus you get an option of UK/US server IP address which allows you free unlimited access to BBC iPlayer, ITV player, and FoxSports Go coverage.

Free Online Streaming Sites:
The second option is super free, but not reliable. We all know there will be many websites broadcasting illegal streams of FIFA World Cup and they are available through many popular sports streaming sites. However, they are not worth it even if they are free. They come at a cost of intrusive and sometimes abusive pop/banner ads which can not only harm your computer but also steal your personal information. Beside free streaming sites rarely work good enough to watch a full match. You will have to switch, swap, find stream after stream just to go through one match. So why take a headache when you can just spend $5 buying a VPN and get an IP address of a country where the official broadcaster is showing live coverage through their website or mobile app.

Download Moko Live Stream Android App to watch Live Sports and Russia 2018
Moko Live Stream is one of the free online stream apps. With Moko, you have the opportunity to watch the 2018 World Cup, English Premier League, La Liga etc, via your Android device. Note that the app contains ads.
You can download Moko live stream app from Google Play Store here.

iOS 12 will automatically share your iPhone location during 911 calls

iOS 12 will automatically share your iPhone location during 911 calls

Apple has just announced a new iOS 12 feature for the US this fall: automatic location sharing with first responders when you dial 911 from your iPhone. The purpose of this added function is self-evident, as it aims to reduce emergency response times by streamlining the process of information gathering. Apple notes that approximately 80 percent of emergency calls in the United States are now made from a mobile device, however “outdated” infrastructure has made it difficult for 911 centers to quickly obtain a caller’s location.
This iOS 12 change builds on Apple’s Hybridized Emergency Location (HELO) system launched in 2015, and it will be integrated with existing software on “many” 911 centers’ systems with the help of emergency tech company RapidSOS. “This will accelerate the deployment of Next Generation 911 for everyone,” Apple’s announcement quotes Rob McMullen, President of the National Emergency Number Association, “saving lives and protecting property.”
Apple’s emphasis on privacy has also been underlined in the company’s announcement today, which notes that user data “cannot be used for any non-emergency purpose.”

In terms of software, the device runs on Google Android Oreo Go edition. It will be Tecno’s second device to come with Android Go after the Tecno F1 which was unveiled in April this year. It runs out of the box, a light version of Tecno’s latest HiOS V3.3 which should help with smooth experience. There’s just 1GB of RAM available for multitasking, this should be enough for light users since it runs on Android 8.1 Oreo Go Edition. In terms of storage, you get 16GB of space, however, you can always upgrade up to 128GB with a memory card.
