MTN XtraTime allows eligible subscribers to borrow credit from MTN when their account balance is too low to have ordinarily continued with an on-going call. The airtime received on credit can be used for all chargeable activities on the MTNN network. The service is available to active prepaid MTNN subscribers.
Subscribers can access MTN Xtratime by dialing *606#.
The following Menu will then be displayed:
1. Check Eligibility Status
2. Request for Xtratime
3. Check Xtratime Balance
4. Xtratime Transaction History
5. About XtraTime
Subscribers can then subsequently check eligibility status, request for Xtratime and learn more about Xtratime by dialling the corresponding USSD code.
MTN Xtratime attracts a service charge of 10% of the airtime borrowed. For example, if N100 Xtratime is requested for, a service fee of N10 is first deducted, and the remaining N90 is credited to the subscribers special Xtratime account.
PAYING BACK MTN XTRATIME
Subscribers can use the usual balance enquiry command (*556#) to check the outstanding Xtratime amount owed.
This command will return a negative value showing the outstanding Xtratime amount. This owed amount will be recovered at the very next recharge made by the subscriber.
In cases where the recharge amount is less than the outstanding Xtratime amount, subsequent recharges will be used to recover whatever is outstanding. The recharge can be via any of the available physical or logical channels.
Different Xtratime bands are available to different subscribers depending on the subscriber’s profile.
