  1. Sometimes when I recharge N500 glo yakata awards me with a data bonus of 600mb and other times when I recharge only get 125mb as my bonus…so what is the reason for this things happening. And how can I make a change?

  2. Any time I recharge they give 300gb on my data POS bundle for 100N but at the end of the day I can’t use it… And it keeps multiplying as I recharge
    So how do I use it

    • You should be able to use it without issues as long as you can browse already on that phone.

      Try restarting your phone first. If that doesn’t work then check your Glo APN settings.

      Go to “settings”, “mobile networks/data/internet…” (the name might be different in your phone) then “Access Point Names”

      Create a new APN (access point name)

      Fill in these
      Name – GloHSI
      APN – gloflat
      Username – flat
      PAssword – flat
      Authentication type – PAP or CHAP

      The social media bundle can only be used for Whatsapp, Facebook and Twitter.

  3. PLS I tried so subscribe to the glo yakata with *220# and all the kewpy telling me is my request is not successful PLS try again for several attempt

    • Thank you for bringing it to my notice.

      Subscribing for Glo Yakata data plan has changed from *220# to *230#.

  4. I subscribed for #2500 data but I was only given 5888mb. They sent me a text to say I’ve been given 7.2gb bonus. But still yet, it didn’t reflect on the main data account. I’ve tried checking a million times but nothing yet. And they keep deducting the 5888mb when I browse

  5. I still have like 800mb left but I want to add more to it, by buying more data.. Will the old and new data be added together and the validity period extend?

  6. I am currently on Glo bumpa which gives double the recharge value for only calls and sms. Is it possible to access glo yakata without affecting my bumpa plan?
