MTN Facebook Zero Mode - All You Need to Know

MTN Free Basics

MTN Facebook Zero Mode [ http://0.facebook.com ]has been available to users since 2013 but it was knocked out when free basics came to Airtel and 9mobile.

Facebook Zero is optimized for speed – it is a new faster, lightweight version of the Facebook mobile site m.facebook.com. The site does not have graphics or photos, and Facebook zero’s pages have been designed for performance on the MTN’s network.
 
Before now, you might be asking if Facebook is free on MTN and the answer is YES.

According to them.

ΜΤΝ leads the way once again with Facebook Zero, the service that offers to all MTN subscribers FREE access to Facebook from their mobile phone! ... Enjoy FREE unlimited access to Facebook Zero, by entering 0.facebook .com OR zero.facebook.com to your browser.

Having known these, let's look at the Frequently asked questions about MTN Zero Mode and their answers.

To whom is Facebook Zero available?


To all MTN subscribers! Whether you are an MTN PayMonthly or an ΜΤΝ PayAsYouGo subscriber, you can have access to Facebook FREE of charge through the Facebook Zero service.

What features do I have with Facebook Zero?


With Facebook Zero you can:

  1. Update your status
  2. Send and receive messages
  3. Search Facebook (i.e. Friends)
  4. Add new friends
  5. Write on your friends’ walls
  6. Browse through Facebook


What do I have to do to activate the service?


Just enter the web address 0.facebook.com or zero.facebook.com to your browser, (without the www). You don’t need to do anything else!

Is there a monthly fee for Facebook Zero?


No! The Facebook Zero service is offered free of charge to all MTN subscribers as long as the usage complies with the terms & conditions of the service.


Do I have to pay anything when using Facebook Zero?


No! The use of Facebook Zero by MTN subscribers is absolutely free of charge.

However, if you choose to navigate away from the 0.facebook.com or zero.facebook.com homepage (i.e. if you choose to view a photo or a video displayed on the page), then the normal browsing rates will apply.

Why can’t I see any photos or videos when using Facebook Zero?


Facebook Zero is a text-only version of Facebook. Photos, videos or any other external content is uploaded on Facebook as a link (url).

If you choose to view them, then normal browsing rates will apply.

Can I have access to Facebook Zero from any mobile device?


In general, yes. All Smartphones or mobile devices with supported browsers can have access to Facebook Zero. There are a few exceptions such as some old mobile devices and specific web browsers.

I have a BlackBerry device but no BlackBerry Internet Service. Will I have access to Facebook Zero?


No, access is not possible.

I am only using Facebook Zero but my account got charged. Why?


This can only happen in two cases. 

You either navigated away from the Facebook Zero homepage and to other websites, or you own a Smartphone and by enabling data to enter Facebook Zero you triggered data traffic from the applications that are running in the background.

Will I have free access to Facebook Zero while I am abroad?


No. If you use Facebook Zero while you are abroad, you will be charged based on the standard roaming rates.

For more information please visit any MTN Store of call the MTN Call Center at 136.

**************
As for me, I don't welcome this idea since it only works on browsers and not on the mobile app just like Airtel Free basics and the rest.

However, it can serve for some people who don't have any alternative.
