How To Hide Your Phone Number When Making Calls On MTN

This method does not seem to work anymore.

MTN has a lot to offer its customers, talking of various low priced data bundles that do not expire and also low calling rates, one of them which is “MTN free after one”, allows you to make a call and only pay for the first minute — then the rest of the call will be free and aside from that MTN will dash you free 50MB to be used within that day.

This makes MTN my favourite as they have the perfect bundles and call rate for each and everyone whether rich or poor.
