To unblock your MTN SIM card, follow these steps:
- Request a SIM swap at any MTN office or service center.
- To confirm your identity, present a valid form of identification (e.g., national ID card, driver’s license, international passport).
- Pay the SIM swap fee, which may vary depending on your location and the reason for the SIM blockage.
- When the SIM swap is finished, your old SIM card will be deactivated and you will be given a new SIM card with the same phone number.
- Before you can use the new SIM card for calls, texts, and data services, you must first register it.
SIM blockage can occur for a variety of reasons, including noncompliance with SIM registration regulations, exceeding credit limits, or suspicious activity on your account. To avoid SIM blockage, it is best to always follow the rules and regulations set by your service provider.
