Glo Yakata Code / Glo Yakata Plan

The plan allows customers to satisfy their browsing and talking needs from the same recharge. It offers customers both amazing voice and data bundles. Glo Yakata favours both existing and new customers. In other words, you do not have to buy a new Glo sim for you to enjoy the benefits of the Yakata plan.
Benefits of Glo Yakata plan

What are Glo Yakata benefits?
Depending on the amount recharged, the customer will receive amazing value and bonuses as shown in the table below:
What is amazing about the Yakata plan is that the bonus applies no matter the method used to recharge the Glo line. That means you can get the bonus whether you on bank recharge (recharging through your mobile app or USSD top-up) or voucher/recharge card top-up. Further, when you already have an existing data bundle and recharge, it simply tops up the already existing data and extends its expiring date. Great!

To migrate to Glo Yakata is very easy. All you need is the open your phone, press the Glo Yakata code and press “Send” and your Glo line will be added to the Yakata plan
The Glo Yakata code is *220#.
Previously, all Glo new customers were automatically on the Yakata plan but that is not so any more as Glo now puts their new customers on the Glo Berekete plan, which also offers values similar to the Yakata plan.
However, if you are already an existing Glo customer or an old user, you can migrate to Glo Yakata plan by dialling the Yakata code *220#.
Therefore, that is how to migrate to the Glo Yakata tariff plan.

How to deactivate Glo Yakata plan
You can deactivate Glo Yakata plan by simply migrating to another prepaid plan of your choice. To unsubscribe from the Yakata plan, dial the code for the prepaid plan you wish to subscribe to. The first migration within a month is free; however, subsequent migrations within the same month attract a charge of NGN100 per migration.
Glo Oga Sim
One of the most frequently asked questions by Glo mobile subscribers are “What is Glo Oga Sim?”, “How to migrate to Glo Oga Sim?” and “What are the benefits of the Glo Oga Sim?” These are among the questions that will be answered in this post as we demystify the Glo Oga Sim.
What is Oga Sim?
Glo Oga Sim was introduced to attract new customers to the Glo network. It offers a host of bonuses and up to 125% on each airtime you load. Glo Oga Sim works by adding an extra 125% bonus on your data each time you subscribe or auto-renew your subscription.
How to subscribe to Glo Oga Sim
Glo Oga Sim, unlike Glo Yakata, is not a prepaid plan you can subscribe to or migrate to rather it is a promo that offers a 125% data bonus for every data recharge. All new Glo sim cards enjoy this bonus. Hence, it does not apply to old Glo subscribers as the bonus is targeted to increase the Glo mobile subscriber’s base. That is why they are offering these amazing bonus offers to new subscribers.
How to migrate to Glo Oga Sim / Glo Oga Sim migration code
You do not need to dial any code to migrate to the Glo Oga sim, all you need to do is buy a new Glo sim, register and activate your line. That is it! All new Glo Sims are Glo Oga Sims.
For existing or old subscribers sadly this amazing data bundle does not apply to them, but as an old or existing subscriber, you can still benefit if you have used data on your old Glo line.
So, if you are an existing customer who has never used data, you will also benefit when you buy data for the first time.
