How Much Do You Spend on Recharge Cards? (Phone Cards)

Simple: how much do you guys spend on recharge cards and on what basis? As in daily, weekly, monthly.

For me, monthly, I spend 17 thousand naira because I make lots of calls. My job demands it.

Even at 15K per month, the connection isnt ok. Very Erratic.

Seems the Bleep ups is overshowing the convenience.

Sometimes i feel like just loggin out and visiting a cybercafe

well somehow i believe him. you know why? well i was at my sisters some weeks back and i saw her 6 year old son playing with used glo cards that she had discarded. i inspected them curiously and i was suprised to learn that THEY WERE SERIAL, yes i mean ACTUALLY SERIAL. the cards were about 15 in number. i wonder what Glo were thinking? so its possible that you could guess the numbers.

I spend =N=1,000 on my Glo and =N=750 or =N=1,500 on my MTN monthly. I had stopped buying credit for my MTEL line. I am always on the NET in my office and that's why I don't make so much calls. I would rather chat with you for hours. I hate making unnecessary calls. I would rather call when I know it is extremely important or better still patronise business centers, if need be.

Thanks be to God I gat no babe that will demand for credit cards.

There is an invissible girl friend of mine. She called one day, that she heard my voice over the radio (Rythm FM) and she fell in love with my voice. Whenever she calls me, we talk for 2 hours or more, funny enough she calls late at night. She wouldn't want us to see face to face and thats why I call her my invissible girl friend. She told me she spends 60,000 naira on her MTN monthly and up to 30,000 naira on her land line (NITEL)

I spend around N25K a month on post-paid and 40 Euros on Skype. Thanks to Skype; my IDD bills would have sent me out of town...

But when are these naija telcos going to offer us what others enjoy outside the country. I am talking about proper contract lines where you can get a phone and some decently cheap rates for minutes in a month. Vmobile already offer something close to that (without the phones o!) but the rest are sitting tight. I know friends of mine, who with 28 pounds, talk for life on their phones.

@nferyn, that's really really cheap compared to getting 128/64kbps for $600 a month.

As for me i don't like to make phone calls. I only do when that's the last and only available option.

I spend less than N100 a month at times.

I mostly chat/e-mail, it's cheaper and the benefits are abundant.

snazzydawn,

thanks for not being like me. It is crazy i know, but can u really help it in this country. Phone is killing. I read above some one having a contract for 30 pounds, my contract with glo is 12k, which is about US$80.00, can u see the difference and it does not even last me a month, and i don't browse on it as well as use the GRPS and MMS. All i do is phone calls and text.

Wow, it is sure expensive to make calls within and from nigeria.  I mean in nigerian currency which doesn't have any value compared to most currencies.  But we are talking in "terms" of nigerian hard currency in NIGERIA alone. right? Of course.  Now I understand why my family complains about not having enough minutes whenever they call me.  Now the whole family does "flashing"  which basically means they call my home or cell then hangs up.  I in turn go to the african stores and get 7 ( $5 each ) different fone cards and call them back.   Thx guys for letting me know.  My family just complains about not having enough mins.

The least i ever spent was zero naira for 2 weeks (when my phone was stolen).

I actually spend 10-15,000naira a month on calls. I no longer use bumpa. Its not profitable to me. I try to minimize useless calls i make cos my airtime expiry is 2017. It scares me.

I also spend 15,000 naira a month on Starcoms internet connexion . I hardly spend 5 hrs daily but the convenience is worth. I'm thinkin of changin isp cos starcomms is damn too slow.

According to statistics the average mtn user spend $54 a month. I no say some people never spend 1 dime on their phone but dem dey call pass 'customer service'. The ladies know themselves.

@nferyn

Its not that common. U'll be billed but The big companies (like chevron) gives their workers phones and offset d bills. More especially marketing executives...to aid their job.
