MTN is one of the best mobile network providers in South Africa and the whole of the African continent. With MTN data available on your phone, you can browse and surf through the internet, watch movies online, chat with your friends on social media, and do many fun activities.
However, there are times when, while we are at the climax of watching our favorite show on Netflix or downloading a song from our favorite artist, all of a sudden, an annoying text message pops up saying we have already used up all of our data. Thankfully, for MTN users, you can ask your friends or colleagues to transfer data to you. But, of course, your colleagues must know how to do that.
The process of transferring data is very easy and can be done in just a few seconds without cracking some nerves, and we'll tackle that in this article.

Another option would be by downloading the MTN app, installing it, and then registering your phone number. Navigate through the app and select the ‘Share Data’ option.
