Airtel Nigeria Offering Up To 6GB of Data for Just N3,000 – Tested and Works On PC*

UPDATE 10 July 2013: I can now confirm that it doesn’t work on non blackberry devices out of the box. To get it to work on android devices, PCs etc, you have a buy a regular data plan as well. I subscribed for their 10MB for N100 a day data plan and have been browsing freely ever since on my PC.

Quick Notice: If you have excellent Etisalat reception in your area, you might want to check out these offers of 1GB data allowance for N2,000 and 2GB data allowance for N3,000. Click here for more details.

If you’re not interested, just continue reading to get the info you need below.

The ads have being popping up everywhere and the gist is that Airtel Nigeria now offers unlimited blackberry data plans to customers who dial the USSD code *440*16#. Unfortunately some have realized that this isn’t so as dialing that code only gives you 2GB of data for N1500 and not unlimited data. Also another USSD code is making the rounds offering as much as 4GB of data for the same N1500 by simply dialing *440*161#. This particular code is being spread by Airtel Nigeria via text messages such as that which is shown in the capture below and shared via Whatsapp.

Some folks have tried it and gotten this message instead.

I was lucky to stumble on one of their numerous ads which led me to their actual promo page.,

The promo is tagged BlackBerry 2-PLUS-1 Offer and as is common with most offers, it is a limited offer which is available while offer lasts

As shown in the table below, BB Unlimited 2+1 offers you a whooping 6GB of data for just N3,000 when you dial *440*016# or text Bbum3 to 440 and it’s valid for 90 days

No word from Airtel yet as to why BB Complete_NEW 2+1 and BB Social 2+1 are going for N6,000 monthly. I’m guessing they made a mistake.

Unfortunately I cannot act as a guinea pig on this one for you guys as I still have data left on my Airtel SIM. If any of you have tried it out with success, do please holla via the comments section below. Also there have been rumors that these plans don’t work on PC and other non blackberry devices like the regular Airtel BlackBerry Complete and Social Plans. Do please clarify that for us too.

UPDATE: The BB Unlimited 2+1 6GB data plan subscription actually works as confirmed in the screen captures below. The 7.26GB data balance is due to data rollover.
