    ReplyDelete
  3. Glo claims it's bbc and bis both have 3gb data allowance.

    ReplyDelete
  4. Airtel gives 1GB on it's bbc, and yes, it can be used on Android and PCs. That's what I'm using to reply to your question via my Samsung Android phone. I also use it on my PC.

    ReplyDelete
  5. do i need any settings to use it on my android fone.

    ReplyDelete
  6. Hi,

    No. Just put in the Airtel SIM. The phone will detect the settings automatically.

    If it doesn't, lemme know.

    ReplyDelete
  7. PLEASE I WANT TO USE ETISALAT BIS ON MY ANDROID. WHO SHOULD I DO?

    ReplyDelete
  8. Hi, I don't know of a way for you to use Etisalat BIS on your android.

    Thanks for the comment!

    ReplyDelete
  9. I can't detect 3G on my BB Curve 8500. What do I need to do to bring this up

    ReplyDelete
  10. Hi, can you see EDGE?
    If yes, check the settings to ensure that 3G isn't disabled.

    If No, try another SIM.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Pls can airtel Sim work on BB powered by Verizon.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Hello ,pls I can't sing in to yahoo messenger on my airtel bis ,nd I checked it out on the net its enabled "why is that happening? "

    ReplyDelete
  13. Yes, an Airtel SIM will work on a BB customized for Verizon. Only issue is you might have to unlock the phone, which can be done for you at Computer Village or Saka.

    ReplyDelete
  14. If you can access the internet, then you'll need to reinstall the Yahoo Messenger.

    ReplyDelete
  15. My bbm doesn't work on my airtel bis

    ReplyDelete
  16. Hi Chinazor, that's serious. You might need to go to an Airtel customer centre.

  18. Pls can I use Airtel bis on my Nokia Lumia?

    ReplyDelete
  19. Yes, you can use Airtel BIS on your Nokia Lumia phone.

    ReplyDelete
  20. The special Airtel BIS 2GB plan is unique, it will work on your Nokia Lumia but may not be out of the box.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Please how much is the special airtel bis. Thanks

    ReplyDelete
  22. Airtel's now has BIS 1 Month pack with 2GB data bundle for N1,500. Subscription code is *440*16#.

    But there's the special edition of that, which gives you 4GB for the same N1,500 and lasts for 2 months. It's BIS 1 Month + 1 Month bonus, subscription code is *440*161# and price is N1,500 (same as the 2GB one).

    ReplyDelete
  23. @olafusi will the airtel special edition 4GB plan work on Z10?

    ReplyDelete
  24. Hi Piper,

    I'm not sure it will work for Z10. You might have to call Airtel customer care. Also make sure you speak to about 4 different customer care agents, so you'll be able to pick the most occurring answer as the valid answer.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Thanks Olafusi. I will do that.

    ReplyDelete
  26. PlS hw can I subcribe on airtel BIS for #1000 with d codes pls I nid it b4 sunrise cos hav bin calling careunit for ages,

  31. tnkz really helpful

    ReplyDelete
  32. Hi Abiona,

    I heard that the two plans work on android phones. But you might need to top-up with a 10MB data plan in some exceptional cases.

    Thanks for dropping by.

  33. Pls can airtel bis work on java phone?

    ReplyDelete
  34. Please explain how I can use 1500 airtel to subscribe for the 4g and 2 months duration.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Hi Anonymous friend,

    Yes, the Airtel bis data bundle will work on a java phone.

    Thanks for the comment!

    ReplyDelete
  36. Hi AGM,

    The subscription code is *440*161# and price is N1,500.

    Thanks for the comment!

  37. Hello Olafusi, I need help o! just activated air 2GB. Its not working and i tried the 10MB daily plan but each and every time i try activating it with *141*712*11, it keep giving me this message ''you can only switch between day, night and weekend plans after exhausting your bundle''. is there any other code i can use.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Hi Piper,

    Let's troubleshoot together.

    STEP 1: Verify that you really have the 2GB BIS bundle by dialing *123*10# It will display the data bundle you have.

    STEP: 2: Verify that data connectivity is enabled on your device. And verify that the internet settings have internet.ng.airtel.com as the APN

    STEP 3: Try the SIM on a blackberry phone to see if the data will work.

    STEP 4: Give me your feedback.

    I still use my Airtel BIS on my android phone and computer. I've got a colleague that does too.

    If at the end of our troubleshooting, it doesn't work I'll refund the subscription money. You subscribed based on my recommendation.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Thank you Olafusi.

    Step 1 and 2 verified and ok. I will try step 3 when i get home and i'll give you feed back. Thanks for the quick response.

    ReplyDelete
  40. My sim is working perfectly in a blackberry (9800) phone. What can be the problem?

    ReplyDelete
  41. I'm thinking it's the settings.

    What phone is the other one?
    And can you type here the details of the internet profile setting?

    ReplyDelete
  42. You mentioned that *141*712*11# was giving you -- ''you can only switch between day, night and weekend plans after exhausting your bundle''

    Dial *141*712*0# to see what current bundle it's talking about.

    I beginning to enjoy this. I'm sure we'll soon figure out what's wrong.

    ReplyDelete
  43. The message I'm getting after dialing that code is "you have 6gig left of your data bundle plan. Your bundle expires on 24 Feb 2014. Airtel.

    ReplyDelete
  44. You're set bro!

    That 6GB is pure data pack, not tied to BB.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Thanks again for your help Olafusi. I guess the problem was the network. Everything is working perfectly at the moment.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Thanks for thinking I could be of help.

    I'm glad you can now enjoy the data bundle. I know how it feels like when you've a data plan subscribed and you can't use it. It's worse than not having a data plan at all.

  51. Hi Tunez & Anonymous pal,

    Airtel is deactivating the BIS data bundle on non-BB devices.

    ReplyDelete
  52. hello can we remove our airtel sim and put it in a bb to subscribe and then remove the back ..can it wrk DAT way

    ReplyDelete
  53. Hi Anonymous Pal,

    Going by the official news from Airtel, it won't work that way anymore. Once you put the SIM in a device that is not a blackberry phone, the data bundle won't work. You'll be charged straight from your phone credit.

    ReplyDelete
  54. pls mtn internet bundle details

  63. Hi Anonymous Pal,

    Airtel has a cheap plan for BBM on Android, but it's just for BBM. You won't be able to access the internet via it.

    It costs N100 per day. Subscription code is *440*22#

    N200 per week. Subscription code is *440*23#

    N300 per month. Subscription code is *440*24#

    ReplyDelete
  67. Hi Kayman,

    MTN BIS doesn't work for Android (at least, out of the box). I won't advise you to subscribe if the plan is to use it on your android phone.

    ReplyDelete
  68. Hi Anonymous Pal,

    Yeah, it works on the Tecno (I mean the Airtel BIS plan, till they truly block it).

    ReplyDelete
  69. Hi, I recently port from mtn to airtel only for data plans. My phone is Samsung s3. After recharging a voucher of N2k, i activated the BIS one month pack by *440*16# and the money got deducted saying "your airtel unlimited bb service is live". But later i start receiving messages for data usage and the money was/is really getting deducted from my main account. Any suggestion or solution pls..

  77. Hi All,

    Sorry for my delayed response. The Airtel BIS plans still work on PC. Will also work on your Verizon BB, Q10, Nokia Lumia and Android phones. Mine is currently in use on my Samsung Galaxy S2.

    The N1,000 BIS will get you 350MB. I will advice you go for the N1,400 BIS which gets you 1GB data bundle.

    ReplyDelete
  78. Pls will I have to insert my airtel line on bb to subscribe or subscribe on my android phone
