The Funlink Bundle is NGN1, 500.00 for 30 days from the date of the request. After you send FUN to 131, MTN will deduct NGN1, 500.00 from your account.

To me, the "my best friend service" is what I really like with regards to this new MTN package but considering the tarrif, It is obvious that it is still expensive than what other networks out there are charging.  For example, if you are on the Globacom TALK MORE package, you will be charged 30k/sec (glo-to- glo) and 60k/sec (glo to others)

If you are a Globacom Subscriber, to migrate to Glo Talk More, simple dial *100*1*2# 

I hope this short info helps....
