How to buy data on 9mobile

After taking a look at the available 9mobile data plans which we have listed above, you might have decided on the data plan you want to subscribe to.

So the next step is to buy or subscribe to the data plan.

First of all, you want to make sure that you have enough airtime balance to cover your selected data plan pricing.

If not, you should first recharge your 9mobile account or simply borrow airtime and pay back later.

Once you have that sorted out, all you need is to simply dial the subscription USSD code for that data plan you want to buy. Alternatively, you can use the SMS option if it is available.

For example, if you want to buy a 9mobile standard monthly data plan of 1.5GB, you simply dial *229*2*25# or Send AND11 to 229 via text message.

It’s that simple and if you have enough airtime, your data plan will be successfully activated.

You also get auto-renewal activated which means your data plan will automatically renew once you have exhausted your data or reached your validity period.

In the event that you reached your validity period and still have unused data left, with auto-renewal on, your unused data will be rolled over and not go to waste.

However, for auto-renewal to work, you must have enough airtime to buy the same data plan.

To opt out of auto-renewal simply dial *229*0#.
