Airtime & Data Recharging


It is important to have airtime the on tracker number at all time for all the options – Basic, Premium and Advanced included. Presence of airtime allows chargeable activity/transaction by the SIM Network Provider.

As long as there are activities on the SIM (within 90 days), NCC would keep the SIM active but an idle SIM (Tracker number) will be disconnected and recycle by SIM Card Provider (MTN and NCC) under the assumption no one is using the SIM card again.

If this SIM is blocked, the tracker will not work due to lack of connectivity. The only visible solution is to replace the SIM and that will be at User’s expense.

For customers on Premium and Advanced Options, there is a need for Data on the SIM so the tracking device can be sending current locations of the vehicle to the server through GPS/GSM/GPRS modes. We usually provide 3 moths worth data at installation while customers are responsible for further Data and Airtime of their trackers.

Customers need to budget N2000 for Data (1000MB = N500 = 90 days) in a year which is not bad while they can load any amount they feel like for the Airtime. Each SMS from the tracker SIM is N4.00. So do the calculation. If you load N1000 airtime, that would give 250 SMS’. This is enough to last more than 6 month but it all depends on how often you are communicating with the tracker.

Premium and Advanced Options customers don’t really need to be calling tracker number to get locations, they can login on the App on their smartphones or Web browser on their Laptops. Only Basic Option relies solely on calling the tracker number to get coordinate in google link as SMS.

Individual can get Airtime and Data anywhere they prefer but most Data plans are on monthly basis even at MTN office. There are some websites that sell 3 months data validity. This reduces how many times you recharge the data in a year which give you time to deal with other things.

1000MB = N500 = 90 days is most recommended. Note their Pricing can change without notice. It is also advisable to enroll in Auto-Recharge to beat frequent recharging process but ensure you have enough and sufficient fund in your wallet with them.

Example of those websites is

Approximately, you will spend relatively in any amount you wish on Airtime (Remember each time tracker sends you back SMS, it is N4 from tracker SIM), N2,000 on Data and N10,000 yearly for Server Access for tracking with the App and Web browser.

NB: From July 2019 MTN discontinue 3 Months data validity so we took it upon ourselves to provide you data to give you better experience using our platform to track your vehicles but customers will be responsible for the airtime on the tracker number(s).

Tracker (Premium and Advanced Options) needs both data and airtime to function at best while Basic Option does not need data at all.
