I don’t know why but for some reason, one must have airtime on a line so as to access the *252# Menu to buy lyca mobile data and it’s not mentioned. And part of the airtime is chopped for accessing the menu. And I’ve tried to access the bundles today and they aren’t even getting on. Even the bundle that was at 10000 is now at 15000.i don’t know what kind of plots lyca is up to but it seems you are just like your predecessors

Apparently, it’s only Airtel that requires airtime to use *252#. We’ve tried the same on MTN and it never requires Airtime. For the increase in Data bundles, we all expected Lyca to do this since they’ve grown a huge customer base, so we can expect even slightly hire prices in the next years.

The code works strictly on your Lyca Mobile Line. Not any other network.
