    Enjoying the use of the internet with data as a payment gateway can be so exciting. Some people do say, a phone without data is lifeless because you only have access to a few things.

    Well, I agree with that because we’re in a global world where everything is connected as one but can only be accessed when we have data to use as a means of payment.


    As delightful as having data might be, it becomes annoying when you get charged for data you don’t want (auto-renewal).

    Some days might be okay, while some are bad. It’s a natural phenomenon. We might have forgotten about our data immediately after purchase, not knowing that we clicked on the auto-renewal option.

    Then a day comes when we don’t have much or want to manage our resources.

    Boom, you receive a message like, “Dear customer, your data has successfully been activated in accordance with your auto-renewal. Your data will expire on  …..”
