Have you ever wondered how to send airtime from your MTN number to your loved ones, without having to buy recharge cards and reeling out long numbers to them? Well, this can be easily done through the MTN Share and Sell. By initiating Share ‘N’ Sell, MTN has made it possible for airtime, ranging from #50 to #5000, to be transferred between MTN customers through their phones.

HOW DOES MTN SHARE ‘N’ SELL WORK?

As a first time user of MTN Share ‘N’ Sell, it is advisable to change your pin before any transaction so as to ensure that your phone is not trespassed upon and used to send airtime randomly. Have it in mind, then, that the default pin is 0000.

Changing your MTN share ‘n’ sell pin

To change your pin, you should dial

*600*0000*NEW PIN*NEW PIN#.

What this means is that if you decide your new pin (which must be a four digit number) will be 3421, then you should dial,

*600*0000*3421*3421#.

Another way you can change your pin is by sending a message with the entry 0000 NEW PIN NEW PIN to 777. Again, if your pin were to be 3421, it would be

0000 3421 3421 to 777.

Once a confirmation message is sent to you, you can commence transfers of airtime. Simply dial *600*Recipient’s number*amount*PIN#. Here is an example:

EID-EL-KABIR: TEN FACTS YOU NEED TO KNOW

Though the celebration of Eid-el-Kabir has not started in full measure, it is not too early to say, Happy Eid-el-Kabir to every Muslim faithful. And also to Nigeria in its entirety. Despite the several economic and security factors attempting to deplete this year’s Eid-el-Kabir celebration, all hands are on deck to make sure the celebration embodies, in all respect, the solemnity of the feast. Here are ten facts you need to take note of as we plunge into this festive period which is to begin on Friday, the 1st of September, all through to Monday, the 4th of September.

  1. THE  MEANING OF EID-EL-KABIR

The name, Eid-el-Kabir, is an Arabic phrase for “Feast of the Sacrifice”. Another way of calling it is Bakr-Eid (Sacrifice Feast). Eid-el-Kabir can also be called Eid-al-Adha.THE ORIGIN

2. THE ORIGIN

According to Islamic sources, Eid-el-Kabir epitomises the willingness and sacrifice exhibited by Ibrahim. Ibrahim who was asked by Allah to sacrifice Ishmael, the promised son, was very complaint even to the point of almost giving up his son. It was the angel Jibril that stopped him in his tracks and told him that due to his submissiveness, his sacrifice had been accepted already. Woven into this was Ibrahim’s journey from Canaan to the rocky plains of Mecca, Saudi Arabia with his Hagar, Adnan, and Ishmael.

On his return to Canaan, he left behind Hagar and Ishmael who ran out of food and water. Due to Allah’ provision, Hagar and her son were able to drink from a spring of water and even got food by selling from the water.

Ishmael became a prophet delivering the message of submission from God to nomads in the desert. This served as a precedent to the present Hajj.

3. SOLEMN PRAYER

6821/24/9/2015/OOA/BJO/NAN

To commence the Eid-El-Kabir, prayers are offered at all the mosques all over the world. This is to seal the solemnity of the feast, as Eid-el-Kabir is considered the holiest of the two Muslim celebrations we have.

4. THE SACRIFICE

EID EL KABIRThis is the highpoint of the Eid-El-Kabir celebration. Even before the appointed time for Eid-El-Kabir, several lorries are seen towing the roads in Nigeria supplying rams and cows to the many markets from where they will be sold out to Muslims. After the prayers at the mosques, these animals are slaughtered in the head to represent Ibrahim’s own willingness to sacrifice his own son.

The representative sacrifice might not necessarily be a cow or ram, it can be a camel or goat, depending on the prevalent culture in a given place. However, the domestic animal used must meet certain requirements to be accepted.

5. COSTUME

eid el kabirFor the slaughtering of the animal, a blue coat clothing must be worn. Also, very festive clothes are worn on the other days. This is the time when the Muslims wear their very best. The women wear new, stylish lace, Ankara and colourful hijabs. Most times, the men are seen putting on guinea or damask clothing, with fanciful caps.

6. SHARING

During the Eid-El-Kabir, a lot of love is spread in style. The animals sacrificed are meant to be divided into three part. One part is for the family who slaughtered it. While the other two are for relatives and friends and the indigent ones respectively. Also, families visit one another and share meals together even after the celebration. Even these meats are taken across borders to be shared with truly indigent people.

7. SECURITY

According to security forces, 33,000 security personnel have been deployed nationwide to ensure peace and security. Also, due to the relative peace that has pervaded the North East in recent times, the former fear that accompanied the region in the past, preventing them from celebrating the Eid-El-Kabir has been somewhat dissipated. Expectedly, those in the North-East anticipate highly this year’s celebration.

8. EID MUBARAK

EID EL KABIRFor the Eid-El-Kabir, Muslims all the world greet themselves in just one way- by saying, Eid Mubarak. This form of greeting is one regulated way of showing the success of the Eid-El-Kabir celebration and shows the happiness of the Muslims in encountering yet another celebration.

9. THE ISLAMIC CALENDAR

It should be noted that the date assigned for the observance of the Eid-El-Kabir differ due to the several calendar dates we have. In the Gregorian Calendar, the celebration starts on the 1st of September which is tomorrow. But for the Islamic Calendar, it happens on the 10th day of the month Dhu al-Hijjah. This is usually eleven days later than the date assigned by the Gregorian calendar.

DATA BUDGET:How to reduce data usage

Keeping in touch with the life around us has always been the reason the lot of us stay close to the internet services on our Android, IOS phones, and other electronic devices. Apparently, being able to stay current, interact and connect over the cloud does not come free, it is paid for. With every passing moment, service providers like MTN, Airtel, 9mobile and GLO tag a price on every megabyte offered, in so much that the free or unlimited data plan that used to be is rarely available anymore.

On the part of the users, several tons of data, that could otherwise be saved, are being consumed at a high rate. It, therefore, becomes important to know how to manage it so as not to expend whatever money you have. Follow up on the tips below and you should be able to rescue your data budget.

JUST THE RIGHT AMOUNT OF DATA

One incontestable way to reduce data usage and save cost is knowing how much data you need in the first place. It is easier to use something lavishly when it is readily available. But if every megabyte is reasonably accounted for, there will be no cause for any such unwarranted waste. To know your approximate need, and the plan you really need to subscribe for, keep tabs on your previous data usage and make a mental table of what really are your requisite needs online. Sum up a number of the unimportant ways you have put your data to use. Then approximately calculate just what bundle you will need for your next subscription. Your internet bundle should be slightly above your data needs in case of an emergent situation.

HOW TO SAVE DATA USING VTPASS.COM

Vtpass.com, as an online payment platform, helps reduce your data usage and save cost in more ways than one. For one, you can credit your wallet with a budgeted amount according to your need and capacity, and only fund your internet subscription from the wallet. This way, you can have an online account specifying just how much you are willing to use for your data subscription on your GLO, MTN, 9MOBILE and AIRTEL,  networks.

Again, you can follow up on all your transactions through vtpass.com. This helps you keep track of your expenses. Not only that, you can even earn money on vtpass.com while buying data subscription on your device. This is possible through the Refer a Friend affiliate program.  By referring a friend to the platform, you will be paid for the transactions they carry out. The good thing is vtpass.com, as an online payment platform, can be readily accessed even on your mobile device, so you don’t need a PC or laptop to get on the site. Log on to www.vtpass.com now to make payment and optimise data usage.

WIFI PLEASE!!!

ONE WAY TO REDUCE DATA IS TO USE PUBLIC WIFI
USE WIFI IN PUBLIC LOCATIONS AS MUCH AS YOU CAN

Really, considering the high rate of technological awareness in Nigeria, more and more places are being braced with wifis. There is, therefore, no need to use cellular data to update apps or download huge files. This can be done when within range of a wifi network. Also, streaming of high-quality videos needs not be done unless when wifi service is available. Better still, in very immediate circumstances, these videos can be downloaded or you can use offline options like YouTube Red.

BACKGROUND DATA

Several apps consume data in the background, getting updated severally, uploading messages or posts etc. One such app is Instagram. Because of the constant visuals, it deals with, its data consumption is on par. It is therefore advisable to regulate the number of people you follow on Instagram. This, of course, excludes those whose main line of operation, lie within this realm. But as much as possible, use wifi wherever possible to update or upload message with rich texts or high par images. You can also restrict the background data consumed by some apps on your Android phone. First, go to Settings> Wireless & Network> Data Usage. This presents the statistics of applications consuming the bulk of your data in ascending order. Click on any of such app and you will be given the option to restrict its background data.

COMPRESS YOUR DATA

Another way to reduce data usage is to optimise the use of browsers that help compress information before sending it to your mobile Android or IOS device. Such browsers include Opera Mini and Google Chrome.

SET YOUR LIMIT

If you are such one that still whittles off your data before its stipulated time of expiry, then it is good you set a limit for yourself, so that every now and then, you know just when to stop. You can also enable an alert that tells you when you are going over the bar. To do this on your Android, you should go to Settings>Wireless & Network>Data Usage. Below the Mobile data button (which should be switched on at this point), there will be an option to Set Mobile Data Limit, tick it, and then set your limit and alert level.

There is nothing better than being able to get your data subscription or renew your data plan, just when you want to, and still be able to save as much of it as you can. With Vtpass.com, this is very possible. Visit our website www.vtpass.com, to buy and renew your data. Also, utilise our affiliate programs to earn more money even as you stay connected.
