For the past couple of months, airtel has been growing their subscribers using freebies. It started with the introduction of their 4G network which comes with 4GB of free data. Then the small data big money plan which gives 200% of the original data as bonus. The newest in town is the airtel 4.6gb for 200 naira.
The primary objective of this article is to educate you on how to get the best out of this plan. I also have a possible fix for those that airtel initially told they are not eligible.
Airtel 4.6GB for 200 Naira.
You think airtel small money big data is one of the best internet plan out there? Well, you think wrong. Airtel has done the Usain Bolt thing and break their own record with this new plan.
Note that this is official and it selects SIM card but if you follow everything i said in this article, you should have no problem being among the lucky ones.
Like i said, it doesn’t work on all SIM. So to know your eligibility status, send GET to 141. If you receive the message below, then you are eligible. Else, you are not (but keep reading, i have a fix that works for many).
Dear Customer, Congratulations! You can enjoy 100% DATA BONUS ANYTIME EVERYDAY FOR THE NEXT 3 MONTHS, when you buy data bundle of N500 and above.
You may also receive two other messages but the above confirms you are eligible for the offer.
The next step is to buy 200 airtel recharge card. Recharging from your bank won’t work here. I bought recharge card today for the first time in about 3 years.
Now load the airtime using *143*Airtime PIN#. A message will pop up saying you have been credited with 250MB valid for a week. Just ignore it.
Dial *140# or *223# to check your airtel data balance. You should then see the 4.6GB given to you under bonus data. Validity is a month (30 days).
For those that are not eligible, try to migrate to airtel smarttrybe by dialing *312# >> 1 and try to send GET to 141 again. Doing this automatically makes some Sims become eligible but still not all.
Finally, you can accumulate this data up to 5 times amounting to 23GB for 1000 naira. Are you using this plan? Let me know what you think about it.
