  12. 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?

    Reply
  13. 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

    • Hello Divine, it is network issue. And right now, Airtel isn’t working on a 3G Standard network, the downlink and uplink are too bad. So you can either try it during Night hours.

      FBL will appreciate your reply.

  37. 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.
    1. LTE/WCDMA/GSM
    2.WCDMA/GSM
    3.WCDMA ONLY….please which one out of the three can i refers as 2g?

    Reply
    • 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

    • 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.

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

    Reply
      • 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.

  39. 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.

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