So following the theft of my phone (I was actually beaten and robbed by 7 guys), I was in a fix whether to do an MTN Welcome back to withrive the number or simply just get a new one, no hassles involved.

I’d chosen to go with option B the first time around because I didn’t have a choice (I’d been using my sister’s SIM, unknown to me until the dreadful crescendo that brought it to light).

But now with my GTB account connected as well as the threat of losing some certain beautiful Damsels’ contacts along with some other minor disadvantages here and there, I thought whatdaheck, let’s just roll with it and see how it goes.

Newbies listen up. Now here is a mistake you shouldn’t make: trying to do MTN Welcome back on the roadside.

Once I heard them quote me prices ranging from N1,500 to N2,500 to withrive my MTN SIM, I began to wonder if there was actually a steep MTN imposed fee that called for such a ridiculous amount.

I had the money, but that wasn’t the point. I had to know how much they did it at the MTN offices.

Now this was a problem considering the fact that those crooks were merely walking distance from my Office in Dolphin Estate, Ikoyi, while the MTN center was at Lekki. Eitherway,  I wasn’t prepared to be swindled in the name of ‘Buhari’s Administration’.

Today was the last Friday of January and it was a tradition at work to close as earlier as 12pm on such special days. I took a bus to The Palms Mall at Lekki where an MTN Service Center was parked.

Requirements for MTN Welcome back

The requirements were pretty straight forward:
1. Your MTN SIM pack and a
2. Valid ID (I used a passport)

Next, they’ll hand you a short form to fill in  registration details like name, address, and to list a few numbers you called often. They’d wanted 6 numbers actually and that was the tricky part. But if you can scounge up like 3, I think it would suffice.

An MTN Customer care representative attends to you based on the info in the form and a few minutes after, they hand you a fresh new SIM which costs only N100. ?

30 minutes later, I slotted it in my phone and a bunch of notifications from MTN confirming the successful SIM swap completion greeted me.

And that, my fellow Nigerians, was how I did my MTN Welcome back.

Now lets go back for a bit. Just imagine the humongus price difference between N100 and N2,500. That’s why some people will never progress in this Nigeria and then they’ll blame it on their ‘village people’. ?

Oh BTW, in other news, I also reconnected with a female friend from University at the MTN Center. Apparently she was an Accountant there. “I think something might be in the works for us this new year, Darling”. ?

    1. Hello Usman,

      No one can do it on your behalf. You need to go to an mtn center and start the process yourself.

  3. That’s a very interesting experience you had. It’s good to know that there are still Nigerians who are willing to go the extra mile to prove that things aren’t as bad as we sometimes paint them to be.

    Also, I must commend your sense of humor. Keep it up.

  6. MTN is a scam to people how can those fools called MTN recycle my number without my consent. I was rubber by amrubbers they collected my phone and after six months MTN told me my sim card has been recycled what a shame to them.?

  7. It’s funny I am seeing it only cost #100 for welcome back sim. I went to the mtn office at Fadeyi, and they were telling me to pay #1000 for it.
    I had to leave it undone that day (for I didn’t have such an amount with me then) wondering how a sim could cost #1000 these days.

  8. Sincerely, you talked too much before you said anything. Bad blogging practice.
