I have gathered the codes to use in stopping auto renewal in all the major networks for now. A friend of mine was once a victim of MTN Auto Renewal deduction without his consent and i tried many codes to “opt out” for him but to no avail until i contacted their Customers Care via Twitter and they released the main code to use in deactivating it. After that, his money was safe. Read the post to the end to see the codes to “stop data auto renewal” for different network.
How To Stop Data Auto Renewal
If you use airtel network, you would agree with me that once you subscribe to airtel BIS or some other airtel data plans, the plan will automatically be renewed after the expiring or validation date but to stop it, just text StopAutoRenew to 440
Just like other network providers Etisalat subscribers fell victim to Auto Renewal despite the fact that they use to send warning messages to let you know that data renewal applies once your active subscription expires. To cancel auto renewal on etisalat, dial *229*0# or text Stop to 229
NOTE: Etisalat users always dial this code above anytime you subscribe for new data plan because etisalat did it in such a way that, any new data plan carries the auto renewal feature.
MTN is not strict as Airtel when it comes to automatic renewal of data but there are still some MTN plans that carries the auto renewal tag and to deactivate it, simply text No to 131
There’s no doubt that once you are subscribed to any glo data plan, chances are that it will get renewed immediately it reaches validity date and as long as the credit on your SIM is up to to the amount for that data package, it will be deducted. So if you are not ready for such, you can simply Opt out of cancel auto renewal on glo by texting Cancel to 127
That is how you can disable auto renewal of Internet data on all Nigeria networks without calling their customers care representatives or contacting them on social media.
