9Mobile was once known as Etisalat Nigeria, until its ownership and management changed in 2017. Following this change, new tariff plans were created to help subscribers meet their various needs.
In this article, I discuss 9Mobile tariffs that allow users to make very cheap local and international calls, their migration codes, and how to calculate their charges.
I will discuss the following tariff plans:
- 9mobile MoreLife Complete Tariff
- 9mobile MoreTalk Call Plan
- 9mobile TalkZone Tariff Plan
- 9mobile CliqLite Tariff Plan
- 9mobile MoreFlex Evolution Tariff Plan.
1.) 9mobile MoreLife Complete Tariff

MoreLife Complete Features & Benefit:
The following are some of the features and benefits of using this plan.
- Calls to local and international numbers at ₦15 Kobo per second.
- Daily access fee of ₦ If this access fee is deducted up to 20 times in a month, customers get 15 minutes free data, and 15 minutes free on net calls.

MoreLife Tariff Plan Call Rate:
With the MoreLife tariff plan, all calls to other networks in Nigeria are charged at 15 Kobo per second, and same price is attracted by calls to seven selected countries outside Nigeria.
If you’re wondering how long ₦100 airtime recharge can last, here’s a breakdown:
- 15 Kobo = 1 second.
X Kobo = 60 seconds
X = 60 x 15 = 900 Kobo per minute
But ₦1 = 100 Kobo.
Therefore, 900 Kobo to Naira = 900/100 = 9 Naira.
So the call rate of MoreLife tariff is 15 Kobo per second, or ₦9 per minute.
If ₦9 Naira = 1 minute,
Then ₦100 Naira = X
X = 100/9 = 11.11 minutes of talk time.
From the above, you deduce that with ₦100 airtime, you can make calls of up to 11 minutes 6 seconds, or 22 minutes, 12 seconds with ₦200.
This rate is definitely one of the best you can get in Nigeria.
MoreLife Complete Migration Code & Airtime Balance:
To migrate, simply dial *629*1# or send 1 as an SMS to 620, and *232# to check your airtime balance.
2.) 9mobile MoreTalk Call Plan
9Mobile’s MoreTalk plan is one of the cheapest in calls you can get from them, at least for calls to You&Me numbers registered on the You&Me list.
You get free airtime to call five You&Me numbers and free browsing data upon recharge of ₦100 or more. You can also make your recipient pay for the calls you make.
Some features and benefits of MoreTalk
- Subscribers are given ₦100 and ₦300 bonus credit to call five You&Me numbers when they recharge ₦100 and ₦200 respectively.
- Free 10MB data when you recharge ₦100 and above.
- Data and voice bonuses are only valid for seven days.
- By adding 268 in front of a number, you make the recipient pay for that call.
- To add a You&Me number, dial *233*1*, or *233*2* to remove a number from the list.
- To see your list of You&Me numbers, simply dial *233#.
MoreTalk Tariff Call Rate:
Subscribers to MoreTalk tariff pay 40 Kobo per second for calls. After the first ₦25, they can start paying 25 Kobo per second for the rest of the day.
Talk time for ₦100 Airtime to MTN, Glo & Airtel.
For 100 Naira you get 1.042 + 5 = 6.042 minutes talktime.
It is another whole new story if you didn’t finish the airtime in a day.
- 40 Kobo = 1 second
X = 60 seconds
X = 2400 Kobo per minute or ₦24 per minute
- ₦24 = 1 minute
- ₦25 Naira = X
- X = 25/24 = 1.042 minutes for the first ₦25 in a day.
After the ₦25 for the day, calls will be charged at 25 kobo per second.
- 25 Kobo = 1 second
X = 60 seconds
- X = 1,500 Kobo or ₦15 per minute.
For the remaining ₦75,
- ₦15 = 1 minute
₦75 = X
X = 75/15 = 5 minutes.
From the deductions above, ₦100 airtime will give 6.042 minutes of talk time.
Call Rate Calculation for You & Me Numbers:
For recharging ₦200, subscribers will get ₦300 bonus.
At 40 Kobo per second, ₦25 can last up to 1.042 minutes of call.
With the remaining ₦475, users can call at the rate of 25 Kobo per second or ₦15 per minute.
₦15 = 1 minute
₦475 Naira = X.
X = 475/15 = 31.7 minutes of talk time.
So for every ₦200 airtime recharge, subscribers get 32.742 minutes of talk time.
Subscribers also get ₦100 weekly (after recharging ₦100) to call registered You&Me numbers.
After the ₦25 is spent, the remaining ₦175 will be charged at:
- 25 Kobo per seconds or 15 Naira/min for the remaining 175 Naira.
₦15 = 1 minute
#175 = X
X = 175/15 = 11.67 minutes.
100 Naira airtime recharge gives 11.67 + 1.042 minutes = 12.712 minutesof talk time.
1) From the calculation above, it is assumed that you’re able to exhaust the ₦100 airtime in one day.
If you decide to recharge ₦200 to be used in a week, you will get ₦300 in bonus, making it a total of ₦500.
Using ₦25 daily for seven days accruing to ₦175, will leave you with ₦325.
₦24 at 40 Kobo per second or ₦24 per minute for seven days will amount to 7.294 minutes. At the end, you’ll be left with ₦325 or ₦15 per minute. Therefore,
₦15 = 1 minute
₦325 Naira = X
X = 21.7 minutes.
₦500 will give 29 minutes of talk time for ₦200 recharge.
2) New migrants to this plan will pay 40 Kobo per second for the first ₦25 they spend on calls daily, and airtime and data bonuses only last for seven days.
3) This plan is really only beneficial is you’re calling other 9Mobiles on your You&Me list.

For ₦100 airtime, subscribers get:
