According to Jonas
Hello @MTNNG. At 6AM today I received notification that my line has been restricted for un-linked NIN.
I am among those who linked early and I had confirmed my NIN-SIM status via *785# over two years ago. I even did a SIM data update in 2019. How do you explain this nonsense? ��
And yes, I CANNOT make outgoing calls right now. So that message truly came from MTN.
I obtained my NIN in Ikoyi around Jan 2019 and my MTN line was the phone number on my NIMC enrollment form.
I went ahead to confirm the link up via *785# short code. It was POSITIVE.
I further went ahead to update my SIM data (as mandated by MTN) at your centre in August 2019.
