Airtel recently upgraded their blackberry plan for both blackberry devices and other devices. The Airtel blackberry package which usually cost N1,400 with a 3GB data bundle was upgraded to now cost just N1000 with a 3GB data and also for other devices for N1,500 with a 3GB data.Normally the Airtel blackberry Bis plan 3GB for N1400 was tested and working on both blackberry devices and other devices like android, ios, windows phone, pc. but few months ago it was only restricted to work only on a blackberry device. Airtel recently sent a text confirming the reduction to N1000 from N1,400 for 3GB on only blackberry device and N1,500 for 3GB on all devices.

  1. y is it that when I recharge 1500 on my infinix zero 2 it doesn’t last for 2weeks. I don’t understand this method.

      1. Pls Larious gv me a list of BlackBerry phones that the airtel BlackBerry #1000 for 3gb can work effectively on.

  2. Pls Larious gv me a list of BlackBerry phones that the airtel BlackBerry #1000 for 3gb can work effectively on.

    1. The airtel 1k for 3gb works only on blackberry devices, all blackberry devices even bb10 devices. But its only the 1,500 that works on android devices.

      1. Does it require any special internet settings, tweaks and whatnots? I’ve been battling to get the Blackberry and internet services running all to no avail. It’s actually my first time of subscribing for this plan…

      2. Larious….u said in ur comment here that airtel suscribtion for 1k doesn’t work on bb10…u just said it works on bb10……is so confusin…….

  3. Comment:Is this latest airtel of 1000k for 3GB per month working on Modem? If yes, give me the code pls. But if not, give me the plan that can give me 3GB monthly with the code and amount it will cost me. Thank you

  4. I have tried the subscribing the 1,500 subscription on my android phone, but it didn’t work. When I dialed *440*16# it keeps saying service is temporarily unavailable. Has airtel discontinued the plan??

    1. The plan still works perfectly…Dial *440# and follow the instructions to choose the plan…It might be network issues when you tried it.

  5. kindly help me with the code to sub for 1000 and get 3g on by blackberry Q10. and really finding difficult to get it right with subscription issues.

  6. iseyen, glory asuquo

    Comment:please larious, i use tecno p9 devices to subscrib for the 1000 bb bundle plan yesterday and it’s not working on phone, i fine it difficult to browse on my facebook,whatsapp.please what do i do now because i dont have any other money to subscrib.

    1. Am sorry you did the wrong plan. The N1000 plan only works on blackberry devices and not on android devices. There is nothing you can do about that. The only way is to use a blackberry device and hotspot the connection to your P9. All the best sir.

  7. Comment:Good day sir,mr larious,is the 1k for BB unlimited?meaning that I can watch video and download as I like?

  8. Comment:I did a day Airtel 100 naira to test if it will work and it is working, that means 1K OWN will work am using techno android phone

  34. Hello Mr Larious,
    Good day,
    I’m positive you are fine.

    I appreciate your efforts carrying everyone along on the lowkeytech platform, the Lord be your strength.
    Please I’ve been enjoying the N1500 unlimited plan on my android.

    Unfortunately, on renewing my subscription, after loading my airtime of N1500 to subscribe, I mistakenly dialled *393#(which I guess took me into a plan) and I was left with N1400 balance.
    Though i topped it back to N1500, when i dial the *440*16# I receive…

    “Dear customer you do not have sufficient balance for this plan.”

    But dialing *123# I see N1500 as available balance.
    Please how do I go back to the plan and get the N1500 for 3G active. Thanks and be blessed.


  35. Hello, pls help cux I sub for BlackBerry 1000 to get 3G today n later get an SMS ….
    Dear Subscriber, your subscription to Airtel BlackBerry Prepaid Complete service will expire in 1 day(s). Please reload your line with N1000 by Tue 15 Aug,2017.
