Airtel 3GB for N500 & 1GB for N200 – New Airtel 2G Data Plans

Airtel Nigeria are planning on bringing a much better competition than GLO Nigeria. Airtel shook the internet with it latest Data Bundles by introducing more amazing but cheap data plan and their activation codes. This is Airtel 2G Plan.

The Airtel latest New Data Bundles Plans offers 3GB For N500 and 1GB For N200. Probably, later on this year, one can pay just one thousand to browse the internet unlimited for one full month, nonstop.

What you must Know about Airtel 3GB and 1GB Plan

Airtel Nigeria has set this latest Plan to work only 2G network. That is to say, if your phone is using 5G, 4G, 3G network, all you have to do is to manually goto your (using my tecno c8 direction) Settings >> …More >> Mobile networks >> Preferred network type and then select 2G network. Just like the image below.

And again, you have to make use of new Airtel sim or any Airtel Sim that you do not have any existing data bundle plan on because upon subscription, it will automatically deactivate any existing data plan. Please Note this, because it is very important and essential.

  1. I tnk d airtel plan is only for opara mini

    • Hello James, did you tried the Data Bundle? Remember, it works both day and night! And it only works on 2G network selection… Check how to go about it by reading the above steps carefully!

      • hello,please I just subscribed to the airtel 2G plan and it been activated but I couldn’t connect with it. please help me out with it.

  2. I hate it. They haven’t helped me in any way. It’s like when u go to a wedding and u see plenty food on ur table only to find out its plastic

  3. hello oga I have subscribe but how to check my data balance

  4. Please does it work on PC through Modem

  5. Can you download with the 2G airtel pack?

  6. come, did you say only on 2G network? How do I migrate to 2G network please?

    • Lols, there is nothing that concerns 2g network and migrating of a thing. Just goto your settings, then mobile data or more… then goto network and choose 2g network or you can use the above settings. Ahima, funny comment.

    • Lolzzzzzzzzzz…. just Switch your phone to 2g… no need to migrate

  7. I cant download with it why?

    • The network is too down, it will only download where 2g network is active, try browsing or downloading near a satellite pole.

  8. I did it and it’s working fine but the internet is just too slow ?

  9. How can I cancel the 6GB N500 naira plan I tried using *482# and follow the step but it keep on saying is not recognize. Am using BB10

  10. Thanks I have tested it is working perfectly.

  11. is working fine, but to check a data balance is a problem and have tried *140# but they didn’t show the data balance likewise *223# too, thanks.

  12. Pls any other plan.. 2G is not strong in my area

  13. does it really last till the validity no matter how u use it

    • It will last but only when the data remains. When you finish the bundle, the bundle plan get exhausted.

      • But isn’t this just funny and rather a thievery act by airtel to offer its subscribers such a bogus MB on a platform (2g) when they know it’s shitty network and not worth the trouble, more like taking money for services not rendered? I have three lines, all of them airtel. It’s so frustrating sometimes but they still remain the best.

  14. Pls hw can i knw the mass dat is of airtel to stand nd brows

  15. Please I’m trying to subscribe but it is saying I have an insufficient balance when I have 300 in mah balance acct

  16. Does it work on BB10?

  17. And how do I deactivate it when I want to and does it work on tablet device?

    • Yes, it works on Tablet device, you don’t have to deactivate it when you are still using it, instead when it finishes, you can subscribe go a newer plan.

  18. It actually works on my 3G network…. I’m actually doing a live streaming Sunday service presently

  19. Hello,please am using samsung s4,and the way their network mode is witten is different. this is the way it’s listed on my phone.
    3.WCDMA ONLY….please which one out of the three can i refers as 2g?

    • GSM is normally known as 2G network. Meanwhile, you can choose WCDMA/GSM first before trying the GSM mode… If you select LTE/GSM/WCDMA (auto connect), your phone automatically switches between the three network modes provided that you’re within range of a 4G network…. like this;-

      Samsung Galaxy

  20. Am trying to check my account balance by these codes *223# and *140# non of them show me d balance

  21. My phone doesn’t have GSM only, it’s only has those three i listed..thanks

  22. can the plan be use to watch YouTube????

  23. The 500 For 6gb Does It Work With 3G network?

  24. does it work on pc….i mean using my modem in browsing?

  150. my phone is gionee v183 is using 3g/4g network, there is no 2g network, is there any subscription for 3g network and 4g network? and how can I change to 2g as I have 2g subscription in my phone presently!.

  151. Pls who has recently done the 500 plan? want to know how much GB you were allocated… thanks

  152. wow am glad for the information that I saw.
    please I have question to ask, is any amount you can use to subscribe for data, that will last for you till the day of the expiring date.
    my point is. Is if you subscribe for a date can you make you of it as much as you can, if yes is going to last till 7, 14 or 30day

  153. Yo….how can I get a data plan of 12gb…
    Or unlimited that won’t stop my data after like 5gb pls

  154. Just want to know, if the 2gb data plan still works, and does it still work for both day and night?

  155. This information is Appreciable, I will try to avail this soon, by the way what simcard is eligible for this plan?

  156. Have been on the plan for days now and have lodge complain to the network provider and it doesn’t work

  157. Can i active it two times

  159. Is there code to dail and Chang to 3G

  161. This plan is just another rip-off by Airtel, think it is highly insincere to deceive people into subscribing to this useless plan. The data is there but cannot be used – just like one of the other networks around. What is the usefulness of a bountiful data that cannot be used?

  162. I optioned out because the plan is bad. And when I checked my data balance there is still a lot of MB.
    And I want to option in. Am unable to do so. How will option in? And fined something to do, because yoir service is too bad.
