Is the APN Mobile Data product for MTN contract clients only?

I am a mtn prepaid customer and tried registering with afrihost. Unfortunately it does not seem to work, it tells me that I must enter a valid cell phone number.

If i'm not mistaken, you can sign up with your own number only if you're on contract on MTN. As for prepaid, you might have to get a different SIM and use it as a data sim. No voice calls on the bundle sim.

We can only offer APN on MTN contract SIMS, due to restrictions on MTN's internal systems. We are currently working towards expanding to offer data on prepaid SIMS in the future.


UPDATE: We now offer our APN on MTN PrePaid SIM cards. You can now sign up using your existing SIM even if it is not a MTN contract.
