TIP: How to disable Out of Bundle Browsing on NetOne

One of the most frustrating things for NetOne subscribers is to have their airtime used by some apps before they are able to convert it to a bundle.

This is especially frustrating when you buy just enough airtime for a specific bundle. This kind of usage of airtime without buying a bundle is called Out of Bundle Browsing.

There’s an easy way to block out of bundle browsing from happening so that your airtime is available for buying bundles.

Here’s how:

  1. On your phone, dial *130#

  2. Select Option 2 which reads “Block OBB”.
    OBB there just stands for Out of Bundle Browsing

  3. Once blocked or deactivated, you’re good to go.

That’s it.

If for some reason you’re not sure if your Out of Bundle Browsing is activated or off, you can just check the status by selecting option 3 in that first screen (step 1 in the list steps above).

Assuming your OBB is blocked already when you check status, you will get the following message:
