  1. It’s a rip off, don’t bother subscribing to any of these plans. I subscribed to the N5000 7 days unlimited oitgoing calls and text messages, first, the messages wouldn’t go through. Worst was scenario, I made calls of 90 minutes altogether for 3 days and was told I ran out of my travel pass. My advice, if you have any other means of making calls whilst abroad better implore it. MTN TRAVEL PASS IS A RIP OFF

    • same question I was going to ask. How many minutes of calls can you make. Lying to people that it’s unlimited is uncalled for
