MTN will be up bright and early tomorrow morning, in flagship stores across the country, to meet the demand for the new iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus.

“We will be opening our flagship stores in each province at 7am tomorrow morning to offer our customers the convenience and excitement of securing the iPhone 8 as soon as it hits the shelves,” says Jacqui O’Sullivan, Executive for Corporate Affairs: MTN SA.

MTN customers can also secure this sought-after device on the new MTN Made for Me postpaid plans. These plans give customers the flexibility to customise the selected base plan with voice, data or combination Booster Bundles, all in line with their individual’s usage pattern and budget. In addition to the benefit of being able to customise plans, customers can get up to twice as much value when they load a Booster Bundle.

For example, customers who sign up or upgrade to MTN Made for Me Medium will receive an iPhone 8 (64GB) inclusive of 150 minutes, 1GB of data bundles and 100 SMSs for R729 per month. Customers who prefer the larger screen of the iPhone 8 Plus can receive the same voice and data bundles for a monthly subscription of R829.These customers will also receive 30GB of data for the first three months of their contract (10GB per month).

“Smart devices such as the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus need to be complemented by quality networks that provide faster download speeds, clear voice quality and an expansive LTE coverage. Our network has the resilience and capacity to fully support the very best use of devices such as the iPhone 8 and iPhone 8 Plus,” says O’Sullivan.

“MTN’s substantial investments in improving our network quality and coverage, coupled with a renewed focus on overhauling customer experience, will ensure that our customers reap the benefits of using this cutting-edge device,” concludes O’Sullivan.

To ensure seamless connectivity, MTN will support the Apple ecosystem which encompasses eSIM capability, in the future. eSIM enables iPhone 8 users to seamlessly transition from one number to the next without the need to carry two devices or to physically swap SIM cards.
