For people like me who enjoyed this plan when it was still hard to get because you must analyze and tweak the IMEI of your phone to that of a supported device in order to be eligible for the data bonus offer. Fortunately for those who may not have been able to make use of the bonus data either because they weren’t able to analyze an unused and valid IMEI number or couldn’t tweak the IMEI on their phone due to it not been rooted or some other reason, now there’s a simpler method that doesn’t require imei tweak to work.
The requirements for eligibility on this bonus data plan is yet to be fully understood, however, it has been noticed that not all SIMs are eligible for the offer even after following the procedure correctly and sending the right messages.
You shouldn’t also bother activating this plan on a SIM you’ve used to enjoy it when it was only acquirable through imei tweak.
