Glo Yakata is a prepaid plan recently launched by Globacom Limited, and it is available to all new and existing customers.
During the unveiling of the plan, Glo promised several mouthwatering freebies; which include 6 gig data every month, for 6 months; and ₦2,200 bonus value for every ₦100 recharge.
After using this plan for several weeks, I can tell you without an atom of doubt that Yakata is indeed one of the best prepaid plans you can ever find out there.
Whether you consume a large amount of monthly data, or you need to make several phone calls, the new tariff accommodates it all.
It’s like an all in one tariff (Data + Call) 🙂
In this guide I’ll show you how to migrate to Glo Yakata and how to check your bonus balance.
How to migrate to Glo Yakata
If you don’t have a Glo sim yet, it’s as easy a buying one and you’ll automatically get the plan. As for old customers, you can migrate using a short code.
The migration code for Glo Yakata is *220#
Therefore, to migrate to Yakata:
- Dial *220# on your mobile phone
- Confirm you have migrated to the plan by dialing #100#
After subscribing, you can begin to enjoy all the amazing benefits that come with the new plan.
Bonus Data & Airtime Volume for Glo yakata
Here’s how it works: Every recharge from ₦100 – ₦5,000 gives you a value of 22 times the recharge amount.
The table below provides further details:
|Recharge Amt||Voice Main Acct
|Voice Bonus Acct(N)||Data Value
|Data Benefit on 1stRecharge of the Month*||Data benefit on Subsequent Recharges||Total Value
As you can see, data benefits on first recharge of the month is very high. And the bigger your recharge, the higher your bonus.
Glo Yakata call rate
- 55 kobo per seconds to Glo calls.
- 70 Kobo per seconds for calls made to other networks in Nigeria.
- SMS rate is N4 per message from main account and N14 per mesage from bonus account.
Note: your bonus is only valid for calling Nigerian number. Therefore if you call international numbers, the money will be charged from your main balance.
How to check Glo Yakata Bonus balance
The bonus data will be credited to your main data balance, so you can check it using the regular *127*0#; while other bonuses can be checked by dialing *220*1#.
Yakata Bonus Validity period
All bonuses are valid for 7 days. So, make sure you use up all the bonuses before the next 7 days after your recharge.
How to unsubscribe from Glo Yakata
It simple, just dial the code of the new plan you wish to migrate to. However, it may come at an extra-cost of ₦100 if your previous migration was made within the previous 30days.
Another point to note is that you can’t use your bonus balance to subscribe to value added services, neither can you transfer nor share it with friends.
I hope you enjoy the new tariff while it lasts. You never can tell, Nigerian telecommunication companies keep changing their prepaid and postpaid plans every year, so we don’t know how long we’re gonna see this tariff stay. But we do hope it lasts for a very long time.
