Steps To Make MTN BIS Work On Android Using OpenVPN

==> First and foremost, download OpenVPN from Google play store here.
==> Secondly, download this config file here and extract it to your phone or SD card root folder using WinZip.
==> Make sure you have subscribed your mtn sim to blackberry bis plan. You can use the daily plan in test running it which cost just N100. Send BBCDAY to 21600 and N100 will be deducted from your account. Make sure to get a confirmation message before proceeding.
==> Launch the OpenVPN and tap on the options button, select ‘Import‘ and choose ‘Import Profile‘ from SD Card.
==> Select any of the profile from code1 to code9 and tap on Connect. Wait till it’s successfully connected and you should see a green check mark close to where it’s stated connected as seen in the screen shot below:

If the code you selected didn’t connect due to some error, try others. I am currently using the code 4 as earlier codes didn’t work. I haven’t tried the code5 below since the code4 still works for me.

  1. @samuel pls help us find solution to etisalat browsin for bb 10 glo and airtel network is nt strong in my area etisalat is strong i can get 3g bt there subcription is 2expensive

    • There’s really no specified data space. All you get is, you are within fair usage or you have exhausted fair usage but based on usage so far, i was able to download over 1GB of files using the daily bis plan.

  2. Wooooooow just for the daily plan? Wooooooow
    Please kindly give me the code for the monthly one
    Or options that I have to do the monthly one Lemme give it a try

    • Based on research, it’s believed that the monthly plan is capped to 3GB. You can subscribe to the monthly plan by sending BBCMONTH to 21600. The daily is advisable. Cheers!

  3. Please how do I do the file extraction, I downloaded it on my sd card. When I click on it says file not supported, meant the downloaded zip file. Thanks

    • Yes it does that most times before it connects but I don’t see that as it issue as long as it connects at the end. I could liken it to be a network issue because it connects fast at night.

  4. sori to disturb you, but i cn onli gt code 7, 8 n 9 to work, 7 is saying waiting for server, same tin wit 8 n 9 is saying authentication failed, help pls

    • Hello Thorsky, if you’ve read the comments before yours, you’d realize the ish takes some time to connect during the day but it connects well during the night time. When it states ‘authentication failed’, just keep retrying.

  5. I’ve followed all your procedures (for iPhone) but still it end up looking up DNS name and I use both and
    Iphone 3GS
