Send NIN in capital leters with your Nin number as a text msg to 785, that should link it, if it dosnt it just either means your NiN isn't validated cos it takes 3months for your nin to be validated, but if its been validated, and still not linked, it just means the name on your MTN sim card isn't the same thing with your NIN so it won't be link, then u hv to go do a reregistration, to change your number to the one on your nin.
