    • Yinka, to cancel/get out of an active Airtel data plan, send the word ‘deactivate’ [without the quotation marks] to 440. Your current data plan will be cancelled!

  1. Please can I know why AIRTEL browse is always slow. If I want to check on the internet it takes ages to go through sometimes it does not go.

    • Yinka, you are welcome… Provided other things are constant, your Internet speed is dependent on the network service in your area. Is 3G or H+ data service available on your phone most of the time?

  2. Airtel is about the fastest network in my area but the only problem I have is that messages from Whatsapp always never delivers into my phone except I use another network providers data before all the hung messages are delivered. Also I was told I could get 1.5G data for #1,500 in Airtel I don’t know how true it is and what code to dial.

    • Ogini, yes it’s true. That plan is actually a blackberry plan… To activate, just Dial *440*16# on your phone to subscribe. You will get 1.5GB at N1,500

    • Hi Dele,
      pls Check the various plans in the post to see which one you can afford. Let me further add that you will need to create Hotspot connection on your phone and connect it to your laptop via WiFi, to be able to use your phone data plan. Otherwise, you might need to consider buying an Airtel Modem… Hope it helps

  3. Thanks for the swift response but you didn’t address why I can’t use my Airtel data for whatsapp. Is there anything I can do to address that?

    • What Airtel data plan are you using? Does it allow whatsapp? If it does, then check to make sure you have the latest whatsapp installed on your phone.

  4. Pls i used to recharge 100n on my airtel bt anytime i do it they convert it to mb, i want to know if i recharge using *126* i can subscribe for 1000n plan

    • Ken, if you are automatically subscribed to data, then it likely means that you have enabled the auto renewal data activation. You will need to Deactivate the auto renewal to be able to activate a new data subscription

    • Iyke, The N1000 for 260MB lite plan originally was made for Android plan… While the new 1GB is officially a Blackberry plan though some use it on non-blackberry devices and it still works

      • If you people need customer the whole of Nsukka or Enugu ezike is in mess in terms of network. Airtel works with chaina or small phones but when I got home last month with BlackBerry Q5 hahaha emergency throughout my staying. Glo planted mast and abandoned it incompleted.

  5. Airtel improve your network capacity in the city like wuse Zone 1 abuja it’s not strong and in Enugu ezike in Enugu state we need @ least 2G network. As Glo and mtn failed. Airtel is only reliable network but not for smartphones. We need 2G or 3G. Glo mast in village has remained work in progress if not abandoned.

    • Masuud, probably you should ask people using Airtel phones in your area whether they receive 3G on their phone or put your Airtel Sim in a 3G-enabled phone to confirm

  6. Thanks for your good work. But I want to ask for the latest Android bundle code for 1GB and 2GB respectively. can it be rolled over it reached the expiration date? *141*11*0#

    • The activation code for Airtel Android 1GB plan which costs 1,000 Naira is *496#

      While that of Android 2GB which costs 2,000 Naira is *437#. Yes, you can roll it over if you top up the data before expiration.

  7. pls d 4.5gb for 2500, is it used all thru the 24 hours of a day, can it b used by Android phones, and is the data moveable to d next month if not exhausted??

    • Yes, Okojie it works on all devices including Android phones and can be rolled over if you top up your subscription before it ends

    • Emmanuel, 4.5Gb is ok. But then, the best data option for laptop depends on your data consumption is and how much is your budget

  8. Pls Admin advise. I have setup a 4channel cctv surveillance at home and i need to remotely view the video feeds what airtel data package can i use am also aware i must setup a port forward rule am located in IK, Akwa ibom state

  9. Please admin, what code do I use to convert N300 to N1000(for 7days). I saw the advert when check my airtel balance,but I forgot to note it down.

  10. Hello, bought 2500k credit card and dialed *437*1# so as to get 4.5KB but its telling me that I am qualified for it only once. This is how I have been doing it. Cant explain why its not working now.

    • Hello Ugochi , am sorry about the issue. It’s likely you are no longer eligible for the 4.5GB data offer. I suggest you load 3,500 and subscribe using *438# to get 4.5GB… Let me know if you need more help.

    • Hello Anthony, unfortunately it means you are no longer eligible for that plan. Instead, I suggest you opt for a different plan which costs much more though– N3,500 for 4.5GB. If you are interested, just Dial *438# to activate. Good luck!

  11. The last time I subscribed to the airtel 1000n for 1gb plan. My data was consumed at double the amount used. I want to know if it is still the case.

    • Mohammad, sorry to hear that. Did you use the subscription on an Android device? If yes, Android devices consume data faster than regular BB devices.

      • Okay. Since the plan is called Android 1.0 on the airtel website, assumed it is made for Android devices. Thanks for the reply. I will just look at it as if I am getting 500mb as opposed to the 1gb.

    • Hello Maurice,
      thanks for the compliments.

      I guess you are talking about the Airtel WTFB social Bundles, right? Ok, here are the subscription codes for Airtel social data plan:

      ~Dial *990# at N200 to subscribe to the
      monthly bundle.

      ~Dial *991# at N100 to subscribe to the
      weekly bundle.

      ~Dial *990*0# to check your balance.

    • Breezy… Although, some users claim to have been able to use the BB Complete plan on Android phones. However, the plan is officially for BB, as such the data capacity is reduced twice faster when you use it on an Android device.

  12. Please how can I check my data balance in my phone, I just subscribe to the N1,500 bundle and was told I had 3g but I don’t know how to confirm the balance. Can u help please?

    • Awe, the speed of your Internet connection is a function of the network in your area. By the way, are you using a Modem or connected via WiFi to your phone? Do you receive H+ data service?

  13. I be cancelled my one day data plan I want to convert to the one month data plan how do I add up both balances to subscribe to my choice immediately.

  14. Admin you need to update your information.

    Guys to get 3GB for N1,500. Recharge airtel N1,500 and dail this code *440*16# …. to check your data balance *123*9#

    To get codes for FREE browsing on Airtel Sim Follow me on Instagram: @mcwallacedon

  15. Admin pls I got a call frm 08021900000, saying I’m eligible for 4.5G at 2000 for a month and the supposed call rep said she will help me do the transaction when I asked her for the code for it. Please want to find out how legitimate is the call and how fast and effective dose the data run. Thanks

    • Hi Morality,
      From the information available to us, Airtel doesn’t seem to offer that plan anymore. The closest plan available on Airtel is a weekend plan. The Weekend Bundle only works on weekends, offers you N500 for 500mb data. To activate this plan, dial *473#.

  16. Pls I subscribe 3gb@ 1,500 for android using the *440*16# code. I called airtel customer care to top up my data and I was given *435# code. Am confused. Wat is the difference between these 2codes and which plan is better for Android.

    • Hello Sonia,
      The *435# code is for Blackberry, while that of *440*16# code is for “usual” subscription which also works on Modems too. Otherwise, both subscriptions give you unlimited data worth of 3GB

    • Hello Johnson,
      If you are using BLACKBERRY, subscribe for BB Complete Monthly Plan at 3GB for N1,000. To activate, dial *431#.

      If you are using Android, subscribe for Android 1.0 which gives you 1GB
      at N1,000. Dial *496# to activate.

  17. I subscribe for bb complete on my iPad,but I can’t use it and it’s expiring in 2 days,how do I convert it to an android data?

    • Hello Sarah,
      Yes, some of the BB plans do work on Android devices. However, your BB data bundle will run much faster when uses on an Android device.

    • Hello Arizonal,
      Sorry for the delay…
      Simply dial, *440#
      Then,reply with 4
      Then reply with any of the below keys for the corresponding plans.

      2. Complete Airtel plan 100mb at 400 naira
      3. Unlimited Airtel plan at 200mb at 525 naira

      To check your data balance, please dial *140#… I hope it helps!

    • Hello Toksbaby,
      It is simple to connect your Samsung Galaxy tab to the Internet. Choose/subscribe to any of the Android plans in the post above. Once you have been activated by Airtel, you can select Airtel from your phone as your preferred network for data connection and start browsing straight away.

      If you don’t already have Airtel browsing settings on your phone, insert your Airtel SIM and restart your phone to receive the settings.

      Let me know if you have any other issues.

  25. I usually subscribed for airtel 1GB for 1k and it works perfectly in all both Email, Facebook and Twitter and I also visit website for my online shopping.

    • Hi Debbie,
      The two codes work interchangeably. As per using the data on laptop, it is not certain it works on Modem yet. However, you may connect your phone to laptop via WiFi to use the subscription to browse on your laptop.

  29. i dialled *437*1# and *438*1# which doubles your android plan of 2gb to 4gb and 4.5gb to 9gb for two months… its says i dont have sufficient balance to perform the operation.. does iy mean it will work for me??!

    • Oh yes, sorry for the mix up… It does work on Airtel dongles/Modems. If you have an Airtel modem, then you are good to go. Cheers!

  33. my name is Nathaniel,
    is it true that airtel has special sim card with which one can get 1gig at hundred naira to browse in weekend? I sent code and the response was that I was not eligible.

    • Hello Nathaniel,
      Yes, the truth is that the 1Gb for N100 offer is selective and will work on certain Airtel sims, rejecting others. I suggest you choose any of the regular data plans in the post above.

  34. Yes i do have a modem but not Airtel’s so d 1500 4 3GB cant wok on my modem, is it? pls do recommend any other affordable data plan i rily preferred d 1500 own but if it wont work do tell me any dat wud tnx so much 4 ur effort tnx a lot i rily appreciate

    • Has your modem been ‘unlocked’ to work with other network sims? If so, you should be able to get the 3GB Android plan to work on your modem.

      If not already configured, choose Airtel as your preferred NETWORK on the modem & change the Settings. Use these:

      APN=internet.ng.airtel.com.
      Username=internet
      Password=internet.

      Hope it helps.

  35. Hello Admin,how do I get browsing settings on my phone? I’ve called 111 to speak with a customer care rep,can’t get any

  36. gud day sir admin pls diz code *440*16# for 3gb @#1,500 (android) can i use it on ma android fone, does it still exist?

  37. The most valuable thing I normally enjoy from airtel is the availability of internet network and I also understand that the speed is as fast as the ray of light. I like using airtel network to access internet more than any other one.

  38. Hi,pls I want to find out if it’s possible to renew a data subscription before it is exhausted?And if yes,is it for all plans? I use a BB subscription on my Android.The #1500 for 3G.Thanks.

    • Hi Betty, dial *440*16#. You will be credited with 1.5gb, valid for 1 month. The plan is actually a blackberry plan though.

  39. what is the best monthly plan i can use on my laptop? i realise that the 3G data plan for 1500 that i suscribed to does not last at all on the laptop

    • It depends on how much you use the Internet. Pls take a look at larger data package you can afford, as in the body of the post.

  40. Hello sir, i read online on how to get 4 gig for #2000, by dialing *437*1#. When i trief it the response was insufficient credit.. How true is this package

  41. I confirmed my eligibility for d airtel 4.5gb for 2500 after which I then subscribed but the money was deducted from my account and I did not receive my data. The customer care agents keep telling me that the app necessary to assist me is being upgraded. This has occurred for 2wks now. How can I receive my expected data or refund of my 2500?

  42. my problems are 1 how do I get all the packages on airtel? what I mean is their codes and its features.
    2ndly my network fluctuates it is always off and on.
    3dly I feel my Acc balance isn’t accurate its like someone or something use to tamper with my credit, I make less calls with my airtel line but I discover its always 0 kobo whenever I check my bal.

  44. Please can i use the 1000 naira/1gb on a nokia lumia phone? And hope it’s not just for facebook, whatsapp and operamini. Hope i can use it on uc web and other browsers?

  45. I’m so unhappy and disappointed over the poor and undeserved services I have been receiving from my once dear airtel Nigeria of late. I’m so displeased that I’m now contemplating dumping airtel Nigeria for another service provider.

    My displeasures include –
    (a) I no longer receive bank alerts and sms messages since almost two months now.
    (b) the data I purchased with code *496# no longer activate both my whatsapp and facebook apps.
    (c) even the quality of the data services that works at present are so poor.

    What’s the cause and how can they be corrected, please.

  46. The 4.5gb for 2500k is no longer working on my phone. I requested and got a reply that one can only use the offer once.

  47. I have two airtel sim one is for browsing and another one is for call n some time I use that of call to browse too.which code will give me bonus ?I was told that smart connect is the best for call n browsing n don’t know which code to dial n migrate to that smart connect coz I just bought the smart connect sim n is not working for neither the bonus is given to me.why?

    • Hello Dunni, are you using Blackberry? If so, To Activate this Blackberry plan, all you have to do is to recharg eN1,000 on your BB, just dial *440*1# for 3GB!

      If you are using Android, recharge a total sum of N1,500, and dial *440*16# for 3GB.

  48. Hi admin, pls this is confusing…
    3GB for #1,500 (dial *440*16#)
    1.5GBf for #1,500 (dial *440*16#)
    Can you explain. Thanks

  49. Pliz admin” I made a mistake by typing *440*1# to get 3gb on my android device, and its not working bcus its ment for BB users, Pliz can u help me on what to do?

    • Sorry about that, Alooma. Pls call Airtel customer help line so they can revert the subscription to the Android data instead. Cheers

  50. doesn’t the Airtel android data plan of 3 big for 1k consume data faster and doesn’t last up to a month unlike the 1gig for 1k? I wanna sub with Airtel hence I need to be sure. etisalat just chop my data despite my “restriction of background data” and turning off data when not in use. I sub two weeks ago on etisalat 1gig for 1k and I don’t turn on my 3g. pls I need a response to the Airtel sub

    • Sorry about that, Ruth. But unfortunately, the 3Gb BB plan runs faster faster on Android. I suggest you use the Airtel SmartSPEEDOO plan meant for Android

  51. pls admin does airtel 1day play work on BB i did it but i can only use my whatsapp, BBM and facebook dont work. What is the cause pls or there another code for bb dialy plan?

    • We will update you with a new post that addresses this. Pls make sure you subscribe to the blog to receive updates. Scroll down to the bottom of the page to see where to subscribe. Cheers!

  55. Will this blackberry plan work for smartphone device… The unlimited data… For 3g for 1,500 ..i hope is unlimited please I want to know… Does it works for smartphone device..

    • Hello Mr Roy,
      Yes the airtel 3gb unlimited BB plan also works on Android devices for 1 full month. However, BB data plan running on Android devices run faster than a native Android plan.

  56. The one for night browsing for N100& 200 is not working, the 1 of 100 *481*1# said ussd string error while that of 200 *481*2# is insufficient balance…

  57. Please, What’s d difference between the BB unlimited and BB complete. Does d BB complete plan work on BlackBerry 10 devices? And dooes d data on BB complete run the same way as data on BB unlimited? thanks

    • Yes , unlike Blackberry Complete which is meant for only Blackberry devices, BB Unlimited works on all mobile devices including BB10. However, data runs faster when you browse on non-BB devices

  58. Hello Author, do you know about this plan , *438*1# .. There re selected sims it working with, I dunno if its becus of the plan or how old is the sim.. I’ve been using my airtel more than 10yrs I think so I dunno how it I need to be using it before it will work with the sub..

    • Hello Solo,
      The *438*1# plan gives you up to 9GB worth of data for just N3, 500 while the *437*1# costs N2, 500 and gives you up to 4GB data. Both plans are called Airtel 1 for 1 data plan.

      However, these plans only work on some selected Airtel sims since the qualification criteria has been set by Airtel.

      You can check if you’re eligible for any of the two plans by doing the following:
      1. Ensure you have LESS THAN 2,500 Naira
      2. Dial *437*1#  or *438*1#
      If you get “You have insufficient credit balance to subscribe” that means you’re eligible for this plan. 
      Load the required amount and use the codes to enjoy the plan.

    • Hello, Etsy!
      Yes, especially if the network exists in your location. And if it does exist, call the customer care in your area to guide you through the process.

  59. Please can you remind me the code for subscribing to airtel 2gb for #200 for 14days and 4gb for #500 for 28days and terms and conditions.

    • Hi Kayode, all of the Android data plans work well on iPad devices. You can purchase the Android plan that best matches your budget.

  60. Gud evening aAdmin.
    Pls Airtel is deducting 10 from my account for a 1 subscription service i know nothing about. Pls how do i deactivate that subscription?

  61. Gud evening Admin. Pls Airtel is deducting #10 frm my account for a “1 subscription” service i know nothing about. Pls hw do i deactivate that subscription?

    • Hello Obinna,
      You will need to call Airtel customer care to de-activate you from the subscription. Only they alone can remove you from the illegal deduction.

  62. Please how can I use my bonus data on airtel after recharging my phone with my bank account via USSD code when I still have an active Android plan, it expires in a few days.

  63. I subscribed for 750mb data @ N500 14days plan. I was given and have set my browsing network to airtel, but I cannot browse with it, saying “no connection.” Even the bonuses that came with the recharge is not being deducted when i make call or send text but my main balance is being deducted. The bonuses are still intact as no deductions. Please what do i need to do in order to browse with the 750mb in my data balance and also what to do to utilise the bonuses as airtel does not deduct from the bonus balance

  64. i do subscribe N3500 for the 9gb but today i tried it and it still told me that my balance is not sufficient for the plan, even when i had N3600.
    pls i would like to know if there has been an increase in the price
    thanks

    • Hello Casmir,
      Airtel has reviewed the cost of its data plan for Android data plans. Pls read the section for Android data plans in the above article for details.

  65. Pls admin, I do recharge my airtel line with *555* which will give me free calls and mb for 14days and my 1k will still be there. But loaded yesterday with the same code and wen I checked my bal dis morning saw that I don’t av any free data or calls. Checked my data bal using the code *140# and it’s telling me I av 0 data bal. Presently I can’t find the 1k I recharged on my phone and don’t know aw to check my bal. Is it dat I am on another plan? Pls need urgent response. Tnks

    • Hello Tinu,
      Am sorry for the issue you are experiencing. It’s probably that Airtel has stopped the free data bonus. Hence, your credit was deducted directly for browsing, since you were not given any free data.

  66. Hi.
    I’m experiencing same thing as tiny.j used to load using the *555* code and get bonus data and 200% extra call time and ild be able to use the data and extra credit without deduction from my actual credit. Now when I do it, I.don’t get the extra data,it automatically deducts d original credit and gives 600% bonuc on just credit-i didn’t subscribe for this.How toninsyop and and do the proper 1500 BlackBerry unlimited plan.
    Thanks. You’re helping a lot

  68. Hello, Im so confused…

    Now data dats usually serves me for a whole month and still roll over now it can not even serve me in 2weeks..
    What can I do bcos I want to subscribe for another one and Im scared…

    • Hello Blaqman,
      Am sorry about the issue you are facing. Are using your data to browse on modem or do you connect via Wifi. Doing all of these can zap your data.

      By the way, do you have a glo Sim with N2,500, you can get up to 12GB.

  69. Why is the 9gb for 4000 not working again?
    Has it being increased to N4,500? Honestly, am confused about the increment to data bundles in Nigeria, by Airtel.

  70. Airtel Network is quite cheap compared to others aside Glo. But I still prefer it to Glo because the network is more reliable in my area.

    Thanks for the update Adeniyi.

    • Hello, Bashir. Do you have up to N3, 500 on your phone? If you have up to that amount in your account balance and still can subscribe for the 7gb plan, then it must be due to network issues. You can try again later. Let me know if you have further problems.

  71. My data runs very fast. Is there no way it would last for me with my laptop. I normally use *440*16# for N1,500 and what is the best code for laptops.

  72. Plz Sir, what’s the check code for the Android data plan for 1.5gb at #1000. I tried checking it with the code *141*11*0# but its not working.

  73. my question is, can i use this airtel blackberry on my modem since is all device
    and if yes which code ll i use to configure my browser
    thanks

  74. pls I can’t access my phone browser when I subscribe d whatsapp bundle with d code*948#,why? which data plan is better for accessing my phone browser and WC might be relatively as affordable. tnx

  75. My data requirements are heavy. I have a pending 40gb file download because of poor coverage from my present provider (I just relocated to arepo area). I use laptops and mifi. What do you recommend that takes care of these needs ie. good coverage, reasonable price, good download speeds & decent service. Thanks
