Recently, Airtel officially unveiled the “6gb for #1500”
data plan usable on all blackberry, Android, iOS, Symbian, jarva and even PC but most of us decided not to go for the plan probably because it’s too good to be real.
Airtel 6gb for n1500
But after subscribing and testing the plan, i confirmed it’s real and worth going for. At least it offers more value than the glo 6gb for N2000
data plan. In fact, this airtel plan is one of the best plan from any network provider so far and this shows we are gradually getting to where we want to reach in terms of better data plans.
The Truth About Airtel 6GB For N1500 Plan
It’s through that Airtel emphatically stated that the package is for “special privileged”
meaning that it won’t be available for many airtel customers to enjoy BUT let me just tell you the truth; 70%
of airtel lines are eligible for it.
2. It’s A Blackberry Plan
Again, Airtel said it’s a 1+1 blackberry
plan BUT the truth is that you can use it on any other device including PC.
3. Unlimited Data
According to activation SMS from airtel, they said the plan is an “Unlimited” plan BUT don’t be deceived by the content of the message as it’s capped at 6GB

4. It’s A Night Plan
Noooo! not at all. The plan works both day and night 27/7 and “valid for 30 days”
5. Data Zapping
As a matter of fact, this is the major reason why many people are skeptical about this plan because airtel has been known for “data zapping” BUT i must tell you that this plan zaps data but not much. I mean the zapping might not even be noticeable by you unless you used a data monitoring meter to observe how much data you use. I still prefer this plan than any other at the moment.
6. Speed Throttling
There is nothing like throttled speed while browsing or downloading with this plan. It works like a normal Android data plan and speed is cool.
7. IMEI Tweaking
Someone recently asked me whether he would need to change his phone IMEI to that of a blackberry device before he can use it and i told him NO! All you need is to subscribe and you are good to go.
8. How To Check If Your Sim Is Eligible
You will receive an SMS from airtel like this:
“SPECIAL PRIVILEGE!! Enjoy 6GB worth of data for just N1500. Dial *440*161#. For 30 days, usable on all device.”
But if you didn’t receive that SMS, you can check your eligibility by dialing *440*16#. Also if you have previously used airtel 3gb for N1000 Blackberry Plan on Android, you are definitely eligible for the plan on that SIM. So go ahead and subscribe.
