    I will appreciate your feed back sir, coz some one told me but am not so sure about this method!

  8. Please my data expired on the 24th, and today I loaded N2000 credit to my phone and tried to activate by using *127*8 and the response I have is “Dear customer, you already have a data plan yet to be activated please connect before you can buy another new plan” How do I connect?

    • Hello Daniel,
      It appears you already have a bonus data waiting to be activated and used up first, before you can activate a new data. You need to call customer care to help you activate the bonus data.

  9. Hello,

  11. Pls I need your assistance, I just purchased and Registered a GLO line but still don’t know how to go about data purchase. pls I need some guidelines on what to do..

    • Hi Livingstone,
      You can choose any of the above data plans in the post above depending on your budget. Enter the subscription code to subscribe.

  12. i use universal modem on my pc and i enjoy Glo data plan. can i subscribe for Glo data plan by text messages (not by dialing a certain code), for example; i can check my balance by sending ‘info’ to 127 as text message. Hope you understand my question. This step will give me the comfort of subscribing for data without having to remove my modem from pc and slotting the sim card to a phone just to load airtime and subscribe

  13. i heard about a postpaid sim which can allow me have access to unlimited internet… my aim is to know if there’s unlimited access program

  14. Hello admin, i bought a glo card of N200 but my kid sister mistakingly pilled off both d silver panel and some numbers. Though d serial numbers are stil intact. I called a customer agent but they couldnt fix it. Any assistance pls?

    • Hello Tanwa,
      Sorry about the issue. Unfortunately, calling glo customer care on phone will NOT load a card for you over the phone if you can’t call out at least 8 of the first 10 digits. It means the card pin is badly scratched off.

      Here is the solution. You will need to present the recharge card to a glo customer center nearest to you. An agent would need to physically see the card & credit your phone with the recharge amount .

    • Hi Chuks,
      To stop the auto recharge service, dial *321#, then press “1” for auto borrow, and then press “2” to cancel. You should get an SMS notifying you that you have successfully opted out of Auto Borrow service.
