Unisa Students Have Until 21 June To Claim Data
Unisa students now get free data to make online learning more accessible. Here are some questions on data and how to access it.
Unisa students have been given data to make online learning more accessible, with the May/June examination period currently underway. Students have until 21 June to claim this free data. Here are some questions on the free data answered.
Can I use my current SIM card to upload the data provided?
No, you will have to use a new sim card. This free data is being issued through MTN. MTN will RICA the sim through Unisa which means you won't have to. If you already have an MTN sim, you can use it but the number will be migrated onto the data package which would lead to any airtime or data you had on it before disappear.
What do I do if I have only one device with its own SIM card?
You will have to remove your own SIM card from your device and use the new MTN SIM card to use the data.
Is it a must to take the data bundle?
No, you don't have to.
How long will I be getting this data for?
You'll be able to benefit from it for two months after activating it.
When can I activate the data?
You have until 21 June to activate. This means that you will need to have the MTN sim card ready. You will not be able to activate it after 21 June.
Does this apply to international students?
It is only for students who live South Africa.
Can I only use this data for my exams?
This data is meant for your exams. Unisa students are urged to not waste the data and then end up in a situation where they run out of data to do the exams.
How can I check my data balances?
- Dial *136#
- Download the MyMTN app for free here
- Contact the MTN Call Centre at 135
