As the tussle to get cheap and affordable browsing plans for our smartphones and devices continue, I decided to make known the Airtel Blackberry plan (if you don’t already know) which currently works on all internet enabled devices.
Yeah, you read the last line correctly, it can be used on all non blackberry devices such as android phones, your PC and more. The airtel blackberry plan is currently capped with 1.5GB data.

How To Subscribe For Airtel Blackberry Plan

It’s quite simple to activate your Airtel blackberry plan. Follow the simple steps below.

1. Recharge your Airtel SIM with airtime worth N1500

2. Dial *440*16# on your phone.

3. Immediately, you would receive a confirmation SMS that welcomes you into the airtel unlimited blackberry plan and your recharged airtime would be deducted. The plan lasts for a 30 days period

You can simply check your data bundle expiration date and data balance by dialing *223#. If that method does not work for you, check other ways to view airtel data balance here.

I hope this little guide comes in handy. Cheers!

    • Hi Celestine,
      Really, I subscribed this plan for my Uncle last night. Did you configure your device with the right APN ( Pls, do let me know if you did cos that’s what works.

  11. Pls, i got a message that ”GET TWO TIMES VaLUE. For just N1500 get BB Unlimited 1 plus 1 offer with 4GB Data bundle, valid for 30 days. Dial *440*161# or send bbum2 to 440” which i did and the reply i got was ” you are not eligible for this offer” i will be glad to know what could be the problem, or probably the code is different. I have sub on same line some months ago and it works.

  12. Try Using your Airtel SIM which you want to make eligible, dial *440*440# Wait for a few seconds,you should receive a text message which accepts your request and thatโ€™s all.To confirm this dial *440*161# without recharging the line and if the result given was “Dear customer,you do not have sufficient balance for this plan”it means you are eligible,then proceed by recharging N1,500 BUT if the result is”Dear customer,you are not eligible for this plan”it means you’re not.Simply dial *440*16# for the 2gb BB plan.
